Pisuisse Prijs Fund

The Pisuisse Prize was created by will in 1976 by Mrs Sophie de Jong, calling herself Fie Carelse, the divorced wife of cabaret artist Jean Louis Pisuisse (1880-1927). 

The prize was awarded to the best student of the then Academy for Cabaret. Laureates included Simone Kleinsma in 1977, Karin Bloemen in 1983 and Acda and De Munnik in 1993.

Since the merger of the kleinkunst programme and the programme for actors in the Amsterdam School of Drama & Contemporary Music, the award has not been presented. The André Veltkamp Grant is made possible in part by the Pisuisse Prize Fund.
