20th Anniversary show
December 2nd, Art Centre deSingel, Antwerp: a 700 people crowd gathering for Dirk and Kris’s 20th Anniversary show. 20 years on stage was celebrated with a huge and classy show in Antwerp’s most presigious theatre.
Dirk and Kris, both dressed up in impeccable tuxedoes, played standards from their past 12 theatre shows, both also new material from the countless company events they have been doing over the past years. The old material was freshened up: new gags, or guest stars playing a part in them.
The Pizzasong (parody on “Gente di Mare” by Tozzi and Raf) became a duet between Dirk and Dirk De Smet, winner of the TV talent show X-factor. Senator Bert Anciaux was confronted with himself, played by Dirk, in a verbal duel, hosted by TV Journalist Ivan De Vadder. Dirk’s daughter Yanaika sang one of her own songs, assited by a band with violinist Veerle Dierckx and backings by Inez Arconada. Film star and TV Celebrity Francesca Vanthielen took Kris’ part in a sketch.
TV Celebrity Kurt Van Eeghem hosted a funny debate between Dirk as former prime minister Wilfried Martens and the real Flemish Minister-President Kris Peeters. And TV-actor Herman Verbruggen appeared out of nowhere for the final sketch. And the entire show was co-hosted by TV-presenter and actress Andrea Croonenberghs.
