Stand-up is becoming more and more popular all over the world, and a lot of venues hold "open mic" events where those who want to perform for the audience can try their luck. Stand-up comedy is now taking hold in Central and Eastern Europe, and we wonder therefore what it takes to be a stand-up comedian there? Is it true that they can live by performing just a few days in a month? How long does it take to work up the jokes, and is it hard to prepare the jokes and not to offend anyone at the same time? We have spoken about this and a lot of other stereotypes about stand-up with a stand-up comedian, Siavash Alaghmandan Motlagh. He is originally from Iran, but he lives in Slovakia, and speaking for himself he says that he is extremely forgetful, he lacks focus, and he is amazed by the wonders of life on planet earth.

Interview with elements of analysis of modern educational system told by an ordinary Czech fellow. Jakub Studeny is also known under the stage name IronKap. He is a young teacher of computer science and economics and a rapper in the one skin. Back in the day he had worked in the economic department of a large pharmaceutical company in Prague, but he didn’t enjoy that job at all. A successful musician decided to become a teacher and devote part of his life to profession, which, as you know, is something more than just an ordinary job. Basically, we asked Kuba (short for Jakub) about whether anything changes in his looks when IronKap appears as a teacher or if the teaching career influences his popularity in music.
