Die ultimative Jubiläums-Show

The Thistle turns 70 - 70 years of cabaret, resistance, enlightenment and of course all served up with sharp punchlines and great music. And? Has it brought anything? Of course, 70 years of Distel, and Germany has become democratic, cosmopolitan and diverse. So a reason to celebrate, with a great show, six ensemble members sharing the stage, but not for a nostalgic look back, but for the ultimate cabaret show.


What happens when Robert Habeck unexpectedly meets himself at the psychologist? And discovers that Karl Lauterbach is also sitting twice in the waiting room. And - is it still allowed to do cabaret with Russian music in these times? How much diversity can cabaret take? What happens when artificial intelligence suddenly develops feelings? What happens to Berlin when suddenly it's not the left, but the CDU that drives everything to the wall? Is an agency for new enemy images a good business idea? And what do they look like?

What actually happens to political discontinued models like Jens Spahn when they are no longer even placed in Brussels? And why is the self-help group for anonymous assholes in the Bundestag so popular?

In short - a very entertaining evening full of new topical parodies, sketches, songs and with the reassuring realization: cabaret is like Jesus. Whenever it is pronounced dead, it is back again three days later in even greater glory.

This show is only played in German.
