Three of the best slam poets in the country meet at the Comedy Slam Berlin to read their funniest texts into the diaphragm of the audience. The format: three one-on-ones. And you decide who has shaken your diaphragm the most.
The moderator Samson leads through the event and determines the funniest contribution by applause. At the end of the evening you will be on the floor laughing, and one of the comedy slammers will take home the audience-voted triumph.
What makes the Comedy Slam
Just like poetry slams, the focus is on text and performance. The rules for the performers: 8 minutes time limit, no props, only self-written texts. And the audience decides who wins the evening. But unlike other events, the Comedy Slam Berlin only features funny texts: literature to make you laugh.
What makes the Comedy Slam different from the usual stand-up show that populates the comedy clubs of Berlin? Here there is not just a string of jokes. Here you will hear continuous stories, narrations, poems and a bit of message. The whole variety of poetry slam. With the diaphragm shakers of comedians. Poetry slam meets stand-up.
Three invited slammers compete against each other in a tough competition: Everyone against everyone! After three one-on-one battles that brought tears of laughter to your eyes, two comedians remain in the competition. And you decide who can best combine the high art of literature with that of humor.
