How to be Dutch




Greg Shapiro

Welcome to 'How to Be Dutch, the Quiz': the questions that SHOULD be on the Dutch citizenship exam, according to an American Netherlander who's been in the country for 20 years. If you're looking for an official guide to the Netherlands, this is not it. But if you're looking for some odd Dutch quirks - in snarky quiz form - then this book is for you. If you want to take the official Dutch exam, you can do it online. You can also see the results of many famous Dutch people who've taken the exam - and failed. So welcome to this self-made quiz. It can't be any weirder than the real one. Gregory Shapiro: Comedian. American. Dutchman. Celebrating 25 years in comedy. He has catalogued his clumsy assimilation into Dutch culture with Boom Chicago Comedy Theater, BNRfm and Comedy Central. Reviews for Mr. Shapiro's previous book 'How to be Orange: an Alternative Dutch Assimilation Course': 'Difficult topics are tackled with facts, sharp insights and often hilarious, personal anecdotes.' - DutchNews.nl 'Shapiro holds up a hilarious mirror to Dutch society that magnifies all the stereotypes and shows you how you can look past them to become a true Dutch citizen.' - Wel.nl 'Humorous columns, funny illustrations, hilarious photos and observations. Very nice book.' - Netherlands Library Council

Greg Shapiro

Gregory Shapiro - the American Netherlander - is a comedian, columnist and awkward Dutch-speaker. For 20 years, Shapiro has catalogued his clumsy assimilation into Dutch culture with Boom Chicago Comedy Theater, Comedy Central and VARA HumorTV. Now, Shapiro teams up with illustrator Floor de Goede (Het Parool's 'Flo,' Dansen op de Vulkaan) to bring you the comedy show in tree-killing book form. If you're looking for an official guide to Dutch culture, this is not it. If you're looking for one man's completely subjective and utterly biased impression of Dutch culture, this is for you. Praise for theater tour 'How to Be Orange: Making the Dutch Take their own Assimilation Exam': 'Shapiro plays deftly with clichés, and he knows how to transcend them. He lands his jokes with precision... as he revels in ridiculing the clumsiness of the assimilation exam - and himself.' Het Parool 'What's impressive is that he's lived in Europe long enough to be wellinformed of local politics. What's more, he has developed a nicely nuanced perspective of his homeland.' de Volkskrant 'Greg shows us Nederland as an outsider sees it, which is hilarious. Yet - all the while - one can tell he is truly proud to be a Nederlander. A perfect match.' Netherlands Board of Tourism and Conventions
