August ment Berlin. Two gigs at two very different clubs, Krackers Comedy and Cosmic Comedy.
Krackers was in a small basement room at Kara Kas Bar, almost at the end of Kurfürstenstrasse. Furnished with sofas the room took probably 15-20 people. The lineup was mixed both in gender and nationalities. Free entry and free shots. I was supposed to be main act, but the support act was delayed, so I took that spot instead and closed the first act. A good way to brush up my English.
The next day I was at Cosmic Comedy Club, at Barbicans. It was situated near Rosa Luxemburg Platz, and the venue was really good. We were 6 comedians and Neil Numb as MC. I was the main act, and the crowd – an international crowd from all corners of the world – really liked my set. To me it is a fantastic feeling to get people laugh at my standup when I perform in a language that isn’t my own natural one.
Of course I didn’t just do standup in Berlin. I walked around a lot. berlin has been my favourite city since late 1970-ies and it is a city I love to come back to. Hopefuilly it will not take 12 years until next time.
