The Berlin Offensive returns as a monthly showcase, featuring Berlin’s darkest comedians; it’s a show for people who believe that the only good baby joke is a dead baby joke.
Featuring A FREE SHOT (or more!) and the comedic stylings of:
Victor Patrascan has told jokes in English in front of a crowd of people in the UK, Germany, Finland, Ireland, Portugal, and Romania. He has performed solo shows at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes since 2017, starting with More Equal Than Others in 2017, The Trouble with Being Born Romanian in 2018 and Traitor in 2019.
Has he won awards? You bet. In 2018, Victor has been Beat the Frog World Series finalist. He has won the coveted King Gong at both the Comedy Store London and Comedy Store Manchester and has been the undisputed Roast Battle London champion for the past two seasons.
Opening the evening is former Buddhist Paul Salamone (US), who lost himself sometime in the mid-2000s in a haze of alcohol and Berlin hedonism, only to reemerge year later as one of Europe’s top comedians. He currently performs in English and German and can be seen regularly as audience warm-up act at German TV show Neo Magazine Royale. He is also host of Germany’s longest-running English open mic We Are Not Gemüsed and is the co-founder of the Berlin Standup School (along with comedy partner Caroline Clifford). His comedy is raw, energetic, and deeply influenced by the sexual repression of his Catholic upbringing. Expect him to let it all out at The Berlin Offensive!
Purdy Holsom (US) is a musical comic from NC (editor’s note: We believe this to be some biker gang or obscure state in the USA, or whatever). She’s classically trained in not giving a fuck.
Hosting the event will be our very own Nir Gottleid (IL), an Israeli comic who has performed in the US, Germany, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Israel. He has come to Germany to, as he says, “make Germans feel uncomfortable as a form of reparations”; he would prefer to date Germans to achieve his goal, but sadly German women have intelligence, common sense, and eyes — therefore he’s forced to do comedy instead. His combination of dark humor, self-deprecation, and obscene “dad jokes” will leave him in stitches, because you are very likely to stab him after his set.
