The Berlin Offensive is a non-stop cavalcade of offensive humor, holocaust jokes, and vivid discussions of necrophilia. Three comics will take to the stage to discuss such wide ranging topics from pediatric cancer to why Germans love asparagus so much.
Featuring a FREE SHOT (or more!) and the darkest comedians of our first season, among them (others TBA):
Nir S. is an Israeli comic who has performed in the US, Germany, the Czech Republic 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.
Francesco Kirchhoff is one of the hardest-gigging comedians of the Berlin scene and a constant fixture of most shows here. His comedy explores extremes and self-serving absurdities with rapid-fire punchlines—ok, it’s mostly jokes about Nazis.
Chris Doering is a former Kabarettist (yeah, we know!) and current stand-up comedian who lives in Berlin. If you enjoy a good Nazi joke followed by a fart joke, you might just like this guy. A bit. Maybe. Probably not. Combining natural charmes with a dark, twisted sense of humour, he will leave you belly-laughing and feeling deep shame for it at the same time.
Erika Ratcliffe is a Japanese-Austrian comedian and has performed standup all over Germany and Austria. She has a dark sense of humour and doesn’t shy away from controversial topics like racism or vaginal yeast infections. Her comedy is very self-deprecating and shows a lot of empathy for the underdogs in our society. Erika starred in the first season of “Comedy Central presents: Stand-Up”.
Perry F. surprised us with probably the darkest set of this season of The Berlin Offensive, and we cannot wait to bring him back to our stage.
Miles Lloyd was born into a fictional family of three kings and a duke in the year 2045. Now, several years into the past, he has been entertaining crowds of people all over Europe in a never-ending quest for approval. The winner of the 2012 Malcom Hardee Award for Comic Originality and with a C-list celebrity fanbase, you would not want to miss his frantic observations and have a clear insight into the very broken mind of a slightly working man.
We’re very proud to introduce Lisa Frischemeier. Born and raised in Duisburg, which is basically the German New Jersey but without a coast, Lisa is a cynical optimist who started her comedy career as a charming heckler. While going through some stuff, she decided to try making people laugh instead of living up to the expectations and just being sad. Her comedy is truly personal, unapologetic and “dark” – which she doesn’t get. Due to Netflix she will perform with a weird, unplaceable mid-Atlantic accent.
More comedians and our host this time are all TBA!
