Stand-up comedy is experienced by every member of the audience in a different way, so judging different acts tends to be very subjective. For us, it was an excellent night out and we had lots of fun in English. The show certainly deserves better support...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
