As often as the Swabian people-watcher, political interpreter and sarcastic truth-teller Mathias Richling is a guest in your living room via TV (for example: “THE MATHIAS RICHLING SHOW”, SWR television), he still prefers to communicate directly and live with you, which has not been easy or impossible in recent years due to pandemic circumstances.
Mathias Richling, who is celebrated by many critics as the best parodist of the German cabaret scene, puts his latest observations, as always, in a sophisticated literary form (there are already master's and doctoral theses on his texts). The director is author and SWR presenter Günter Verdin.
No one from politics or show is spared. Because Olaf Scholz, as is well known, cannot remember his CumEx and Wirecard affairs, Richling lends him his voice. In Annalena Baerbock's case, this is relatively childlike, while Christian Lindner courts the young voters with a firm voice, whom he dismissed as truants in front of his government office. Also there are Boris Becker and Andreas Gabalier, who ponders the alleged swastika on the cover of his first CD.
One critic describes Richling's art of transformation as follows: "He doesn't even need a large mask; the change of voice and posture and the use of a few gestures are enough to recognize who he is sketching through humorous and sometimes bizarre exaggeration caricatured.”
