February 5th 2012, marked the return on Dutch National Television of the successful comedy-series “The Dino Show”. This brought eight new episodes full of surprising and controversial comedy sketches led by stand-up comedian from Curaçao – Jandino Asporaat that are in the making. The Dino Show was first aired in July and August 2011 during six Monday nights displayed on the dutch channel Nederland 3. Now through BVN every saturday evening you can watch the episodes, and also on the national tv-station TeleCuracao.
The Dino Show is a quirky, energetic and brutal late night show with famous dutch personalities and hilarious videos. Jim Bakkum, Lieke van Lexmond, Kleine Viezerik, Do, Caribbean Combo and Vurnon Anita were guests in the summer.
Some sketches in the show including ‘Meisje ik ben boos’, ‘FC Kip’ with Judeska in the lead, ‘Oh Oh Nee Toch’ and ‘Bonje met John Williams’ were broad-casted straight after the show as YouTube hits (with more than a million views).
Jandino Asporaat was born in Willemstad, Curacao, and grew up in Buena Vista. On his eleventh he packed his bags and he left the warm Curaçao for lively Rotterdam. Jandino Asporaat Jullian (1981) is a born comedian and showman. He writes, sings, dances and makes music. Also composes, directs and presents. His style is described as funny and charming.
The career of this warm-blooded comedian goes like a rocket in 2005 when he won the personality award at the cabaretfestival “Cameretten”. Afterwards the stand-up comedian made headlines with his first show “Antilliaanse Pot ‘.
He won the hearts of the audience and now also the hearts of the tv-watchers in the Netherlands, because this show is on television and the DVD is also in stores. Then his success was followed with ‘Buena Vista’. Furthermore, he participated in the TV program “Raymann is Laat”.
The talent of this creative centipede knows no boundaries whatsoever, he is a columnist for de Volkskrant, writes for the program “Raymann is Laat”, is a member of the Comedy Train, he composes, acts and performs.
Jandino is without doubt the funniest Antillean and perhaps the hardest working, but that subject. With his third theater-show “Laat maar komen” he acts currently in various theaters in the country. Jandino is also regularly in comedy clubs, festivals and events.
In February 2012, Jandino was chosen as the face of the launch for the Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA campaign.
In October 2012, Jandino will make his film debut as a voice actor in the animated 3D film Thor: the legend of Walhalla. Jandino will impersonate in Thor: The Legend of Walhalla’s voice of the Hammer. The animated film tells a humorous story based on ancient Scandinavian mythological narratives. The film premieres on August 2.
In September 2012 Jandino will start the tour of his new theater comedyshow “De Revue”. Check http://www.jandino.nl for a list of tour dates. About the same time his theatershow “De Revue” begins the tour of a unique partnership between Jandino Asporaat, Roue Verveer, Murth Mossel and Howard Komproe, also known as Caribbean Combo.
They toured earlier during the winter months in 2010 and 2011 jointly in the Netherlands, Suriname and Curacao to bring some extra heat in the form of comedy, music and skits. Late November 2012 they will appear in the theaters with the program “They’re back.”
After this successful second season with high ratings and trending topic (s) on twitter, Jandino looks forward to the production of his third season of De Dino Show. In October / November 2012 will be an eight or more new episodes weekly show on Sunday (Netherland 3 NTR).
Except in theaters is Jandino Asporaat regularly in comedy clubs, festivals and events. He also acts as presenter and comedian in the business industry for the government, at symposiums and conferences.
Sunday, May 20th, 2012 was a special day for the Curacaolean comedian Jandino Asporaat. After 16 years, he had the courage and asked his girlfriend to marry him. Asporaat did it in a funny way: he was a guest at Zo:Raymann – Tante Es in the last episode of this season of the television program. Tante Es asked the comedian if he still planned to get married.
The couple had been together for so long that Tante Es said it was about time. At that time Jandino looked into the camera, pulled some funny faces and then asked Shirley to marry him. The mother of his child said yes resounding ‘YES’. It is not yet known when and where the famous Curaçaolean will get married.
