The Opposites

Comic, popular science series

In The Opposites, two groups of people are compared by comedians Rob Urgert and Joep van Deudekom. To gain a better understanding of how these groups differ and what they have in common. Do religious people show more empathy than atheists? Do millennials have more stamina than their babyboomer parents? Are beauty queens more vain than regular women? In every episode, two new groups are studied.

The Opposites is a format of Rob & Joep Productions, scoring over a million viewers each week on the Netherlands’ main channel (NPO1), with a 25% share in the 20-49 age range.
