episode 6: Here in Holland The Monkey Comes Out Of The Sleeve

I’ve decided it’s time for a campaign to get the best Dutch proverbs and expressions translated literally into English and accepted in every day use. 

There are so many brilliant Dutch expressions and it is a crying shame they are not given the spotlight on the world stage they so richly deserve.

Nu komt de aap uit de mouw - now the monkey comes out of the sleeve is my favourite but there are loads more and a selection are featured in this podcast.

Leading the way through the forest of weird Dutch sayings is comedian and writer Paulien Cornelisse

I caught up with at her home in Amsterdam during a break in her latest one-woman theatre tour.
