TURNING YOUR TRAGEDY INTO
My birth name is Tamar Starobinetz. Till recently, I was known under my stage name: Tamar Burger Star. But now that I’m a free woman, just call me Tamar Robin Star.
Once I was a boring bookkeeper. Now I’m a mother, life coach, trauma therapist, multi-language stand-up comedian, improvisational theater instructor, storyteller, and writer. I performed in Berlin, Cologne, London, and Tel-Aviv, and you can catch my act in comedy clubs across Amsterdam.
I regularly give a variety of humor related workshops to managers, staff, and students. From high education facilities such as HVA and Knowmads in Amsterdam and Fontys in Venlo to large and small scale companies like Etos and Top Selection.
My motto is that humor and laughter are a MUST for achieving a good, healthy life and a MUST communication skill with which we can create a better world.
My comedy is a result of turning difficult situations in my life to a great springboard. I belong to a group of stand up comedians who believe that if you use comedy to put someone down, you misuse its real purpose. Comedy should elevate and create closeness in which truth and honesty can be easily delivered. There is nothing wrong with a bit of teasing as long as you keep respect for yourself and each other’s differences.
Using humor, you can communicate better with the people around you, accept them as they are without trying to change them and still stay close to yourself. I sincerely believe that humor can help bring good to the world and break all boundaries.
Can I get an Amen?!
