Funny People

Newer coffeeshop near Centraal Station, behind St. Nicholas' Kerk. Relaxing in an almost smoke-free air-conditioned environment on one of Amsterdam's hottest evenings was the treat here! The music was nice, people friendly, and the Orange Bud was acceptable. But the stools are uncomfortable and I kept banging my head on a display case of pipes for sale - badly placed right above the only free table in the back corner. Be careful.

Me and my mate were chillin at a bar called the "green light district" its just along te road from funny people it does shisha pipes and you can smoke there. Went to funny people to get some more weed, the guy behind the counter was a bit of a dick and didnt say anything about the different weed and effects, didnt want to spend ay money after that so bought a gram of orange bud. Weed was shit, still a little damp and even though orange bud isnt the strongest anyway didnt really have much of an effect and i put the whole gram in a fat joint for me and my mate. Dont go to Funny People........its not funny.

We found this coffee shop in the smokers handbook whilst sitting in the Greenhouse smoking some of Ajrens ultra haze, which may I add was probably my favourite green and with 5 weedheads all buying the finest in each of the 15 coffee shops we visited, the proof is in the pudding! After strugglin with my map we couldnt find it, gave up, then found it by accident. Very clean inside, but considering there were no other smokers frequenting the shop, this wasnt a hard feat. Ordered 5 cokes and coffee for us at the bar then the bar owner,worker, whatever you wanna call him, asked us, sorry 'told' us that we had to buy some 'Shmoke' from him if we were smokin in there. Now considering we had been to 'Barneys', 'Abraxas' ,the Dampkring' and the 'greenhouse' we allready had quite a bit of green with us, but without hesitation me and me mate dave took a look at his menu and bought a couple of gams of his ice, joined the others and started skinning up. My sister in laws nearly finshed building an engine, Daves fingers work quicker than a polish bricky on price work, so hes nearly finshed roling his 'Nevilles Haze' number and i'm still trying to sort this ice stuff out. Daves blazed his the 2 girls still roaching, im getting there, then the barman asks "You smokin haze?" in a snarly way and if you think of one of those big biker types, you know with tattoos, into dodgy motors,break your leg for a monkey, that sort of man, you'll understand why we nodded said "yes its lovely, cannibus cup winner isnt it?" "That stuff smells like fuckin plastic, its fuckin shit!" he barked with wide 'I'm gonna eat you' eyes'. Theres 3 blokes and 2 girls in our mid 20's to 31, us boys aint pussys and none of us are fools so we left in 2 seconds flat. I just wanted to inform everone that this place aint funny, the fat biker was the most arrogant, coked up nobend who should work the door on a seedy club dealing with fights, not workin in a little coffee shop. This is the WORST one we went in DONT GO THERE , OH YEA THE GEAR WAS POO ASWELL

One of many coffeeshops that looks like a canteen. Very clinical and uninviting and cluttered. I came here having spent five hours in Amnesia and wondered why anyone would rather be here than there. Maybe somebody can enlighten me?

This was by far my favourite coffeeshop, not crowded at all and a good place to actually hear the music. The reggae was greatly appreciated and on our final day we asked for the same cd we listened to on our first day, they were happy to do so. We got loads of pics with the guy with the bald ehad but usually wears the burberry hat and a football shirt, loved that guy! Overall mint shop with good weed and great decor, pinball and good drinks.

We walked in and were happy to see comfy seats which were soft and padded. The milkshakes were good and all the drinks were very affordable as well as the smoke. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and the music was of good taste, it was relaxing and refreshing compared to many other coffee shops and noticeably nicer.

The man working there asked for my passport to make sure I was 18. Then he told me to leave because I was only 17 even though at the time I was 18. He read the birthday wrong. My birthday is 3/7, march 7th but I guess in Europe 3/7 means July 3rd. I tried to explain the confusion but he wouldn't listen. This employee and his homosexual cronies rudely kicked me out of the bar. My friend who was there with me said "let's get out of this fag coffeeshop anyways". The gay men were offended and verbally threatened my friend in front of the coffeeshop, they were poking his chest with their fingers and calling him "Fucking asshole". With their gay euro accents it sounded like "Fucking a asshole". The shop also had a drawing of a penis on the chalkboard menu above the bar. These rude homosexuals nearly attacked my friend.

walked in and quickly left based on the overt hostility of male staff. air of homophobia in the air. sad, with an ironic name like "funny people". AVOID this place!

Nothing funny about Funny People. I guess they don't make them too funny in Holland cause the people there were only a little more friendly than the assholes at the rockerij. Plus, not too much of a selection of weed, I bought a lighter just to show my friend i went and left, nothing much in that place

Posted by Anonymous on 2002-11-26 08:32:26
My Score:
The didn't have much of a selection, if any. The dealer didn't know at all about weed, and when he finally sorted me out, the fat pure joint I smoke didn't even had an effect on me. The place was empty, and now I know why.

I'm now a bit of a Damage veteran and on each occasion I always go back to Funny People. Although the gear may not be the best in 'Dam, the skunky Tea is a delight! The best thing about Funny People? The Staff..... every time, they never fail to be polite, friendly and helpful. If you want to score highly with them, tell them you love Ajax Football Team!
