In a conversation, Spykermann and Van Meiswinkel reminded Van Murvik. “He had the typical sense of humor that I got to know right away,” said Spykerman. “He could come up with a sketch to interview a salmon staircase, or speak to a lamppost who was arguing with the neighborhood.”
The cabaret team always met on Saturday morning to review the week’s collection of jokes and skits. “Jeroen’s ideas were always approved immediately,” Spykerman said, laughing. “He never wanted to change them.” “It is also his strength that he believed so much in his work. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have stayed that long, because he had not actually attracted full homes.
