Colon cancer has been diagnosed at Jeroen van Merwijk (64). The comedian on Thursday shares on Facebook that he has since started chemotherapy.

Van Merwijk says that “everything goes according to the book so far”. “As far as I’m concerned, you can enjoy the versatile genius and moral compass that has been calling itself Jeroen van Merwijk for almost 65 years.”
