Presenter, author, slam poet – David Friedrich has spent half his life on stages and in front of cameras. As a presenter and as an artist, as a speaker and as an entertainer, as a musician and as a poet. With witty eloquence and a lot of charm he moderates live events as well as recorded formats with a lot of humor and self-irony, but always with sovereignty and professionalism. In addition to his work as a presenter on KIKA Kummerkasten or the NDR Late Night Show “der deutsche Michel”, he gained his notoriety through TV appearances as a poetry slammer on NDR, MDR and BR, where the two-time German-speaking poetry slam champion (2017 and 2021) immediately captivated the audience with his lyrics. No matter what the topic, whether bitterly serious and emotional or socially critical and entertaining, David Friedrich enriches every event and every show with his unique flair for finding the right tone and the perfect words.

Mona Harry lives in Kiel and studied Art and Philosophy in Hamburg. Since 2011, she has been active on poetry slam stages throughout the German-speaking world. Videos of her text Norden went viral and achieved some notoriety outside the slam scene. In 2015, she was in the finals of the German-language poetry slam championships. In spring 2018, her self-illustrated children’s book Mutproben, as well as her book “Norden und andere Richtungen”, and in 2019 her book “Hamburg und andere Gelegenheiten” were published by KJM Verlag. In 2020, she received the sponsorship award as part of the Art Prize of the State of Schleswig-Holstein. In 2021, she won the Schleswig-Holstein Poetry Slam Championships.
