We zijn weer thuis - De lachende scheerkwast - Netflix

De lachende scheerkwast (“The laughing shave brush”) is a Dutch television show written and directed by Wim T. Schippers, who also plays one of the lead characters, Jacques Plafond. It ran on VPRO television for six episodes in 1981 before being canceled, and then returned for another six episodes.

The show's plot was intentionally unclear, though one plot line involved the head of a “school with the bible”, Rein Schaambergen, whose marriage is threatened when he meets singer Ingrid Gortebroek in the bar “The Old Dick” and decides to produce a record for her. De lachende scheerkwast turned out to be a play written by writer Jacques Plafond (played by Schippers), and the show itself was a chaotic affair (“anarchist...always derailing”) with more emphasis on absurdist, comical scenes and linguistic jokery than on story development. It was a prequel of sorts to Schippers' later radio show Ronflonflon (1984-1991) and his television shows Opzoek naar Yolanda (1984), Plafond over de vloer (1986), and We zijn weer thuis (1989-1994). The cast likewise returned in many Schippers productions, and included jazz musician Clous van Mechelen (as Jan Vos).
