meet the comedians

Clit Comedy Club and friends at tallinn fringe

But who are they?
This page is dedicated to finding that out.

Mari Volar (EST)

Mari Volar is an Estonian comedian, comedy producer and musician. Having been kicked out of her pretty and introverted homeland for being too opinionated, unattractive and loud, she now resides in Cologne, Germany and gets into all sorts of trouble as the creator and MC of Clit Comedy Club. 

Mari is frequently seen performing in cities across Germany (Cologne, Frankfurt and Berlin to name a few), but her comedic timing and charm have also received praise in places like Brussels, Amsterdam, Luxembourg and Prague. Her witty remarks and tales of immigrant living will make you love, hate and pity her in perfectly equal amounts.

Mari proudly brings more feminism into her comedy and more comedy into her feminism, creating a over-the-top mix in both that simply cannot be missed.

On top of performing and producing events as a solo act and as the leader of Clit Comedy Club, Mari is also one of the founders and organizers of Festrogen, the first ever women-centric comedy festival in Luxembourg.

She’s a basic white girl on Instagram as @marivolar.

Sille-Kadri Simer (EST)

Sille-Kadri Simer is your typical Eastern European bisexual woman with unresolved childhood issues.

She is mostly known from her popular podcast called “Tissident” and
performing stand-up for the Estonian crowd.

Sille-Kadri is notorious for not knowing when to shut up. She has described her stand-up style as “theatrical storytelling without a filter”. In 2021 she had her first hour long comedy special in Estonian. This year she is performing her second special during Tallinn Fringe Festival.

Sille-Kadri wanted to grow up as an
unemployed street artist, but she can’t draw … therefore being a female comedian in Estonia works fabulously for her.

You can follow her on Instagram @sillekadri

Heli Pärna (EST)

Heli Pärna is an actor, comedian, and all-around creator of sound based in Belgium.

In Estonian, Helilooja means ‘Creator of Sound’, and Heli takes that purpose very seriously.

As a true renaissance woman, she is a theater and tv actor, and stand-up comedian with a nerd-level passion for languages. Seriously, she somehow also finds time to write and translate literature all while trying to save the world from waste at her day job. 

Born in Russia, grown up in Estonia and now growing even more up in the city of Brussels, she likes to proudly say that she is a double immigrant. Something that she also loves to talk about in her shows. 

Although Heli is not able to make up her mind about who she wants to become when she grows up, she is delighted to share her life stories with you at Tallinn Fringe where she will be performing for the very first time.

Sigrid Praats (EST)

Sigrid Praats started doing stand-up comedy at Comedy Estonia open mics a few years ago and ever since she has been sharing her vast knowledge and insights about pets and the secret lives of little children.

Come and see for yourself why all the animals fear her and kids love her…or was it the other way around?
