    I am looking at myself in disbelief, for yea, though I am 29 and ostensibly too old for lion posts, I love the lion posts with all my Peter Pan heart.

    I <3 Alex de Leeuw.

    There is nothing wrong with that. I’m 30 and I’m showing a small child lion around Amsterdam :p

    Mr. Koala is Jochem, isn’t he. And Alex is you, right.

  6. Invader Stu says:

    Kiki – I had not thought of that but it is most likely ;)

  7. Lily says:

    I love Alex! :)

  8. Keith says:

    Has Alex know Quickos? If he does, could you ask him to get his autograph for me?

  9. Keith says:

    Sorry, I’m bit overcast this morning, night on the town don’t-cha-know. I meant “Does Alex know Quickos?”

  10. Invader Stu says:

    Lily – Alex is happy to hear that.

    Keith – I’m ashamed to admit that even I had to google Quickos. Maybe I have been out of the country too long.

    Cool little series you’ve got going on here! I love how Alex de Leeuw was kept company with a new friend, Mr. Koala :-) And you taught me a new word today: schaken.

  12. Invader Stu says:

    Isabella – Thanks. Me and Alex had a lot of fun making it. He taught me some new words too :)

  13. VallyP says:

    Awww, Ik vind het lief dat Alex en zijn vriendje zoveel spellen hebben gespeeld.

  14. Ik ook. Het was leuk.

    I used to read this blog quite a lot back in the day, and just found myself in Amsterdam!

    I was thinking of popping by your improv night with my fiancee, is it the one at the comedy cafe at Max Euwaplein 43-45?

  16. Invader Stu says:

    Hi Oli. Good to see you again.

    The comedy cafe at Max Euwaplein is a different one. My group performers mostly at the Crea. Our next performance is not until the 6th of November though as part of an improv battle.

    But you will find Easylaughs at Crea every Friday. They are the group that taught my group and sometimes we are there in the audience and occasional get to perform as guests (I’m not going to be there until the 6th).

    You can find more about them here:

  17. Oli says:

    Ahhh nevermind, I saw English Improv Group and instantly thought of you!

    We will be in amsterdam for four nights and then deciding whether to head to a nearby city or stay in the are for another three nights!

  18. Invader Stu says:

    Have you been before? It’s a great place :)
