Okan Seese is deaf, gay and half Turkish. He is Germany's only deaf comedian who also plays for hearing audiences. In his program, expectations are turned on their head, as an interpreter, who is paid not per hour but per laugh, translates the signs for the audience. And Okan only pays for laughs that he can hear.
The interpreter is none other than Archie Clapp. This promises to be even funnier. With every performance the certainty grows that humor is a universal language that can be used to build a bridge between deaf and hearing people.
Can deaf people do something with music? How do they hear their alarm clock? Are they even allowed to drive a car? How do deaf people actually make phone calls?! Can you call 911? And does moaning during sex turn her on? With great self-irony and - for the listener - an unusual perspective, Okan tells us about his everyday life. He skilfully plays with stereotypes, only to break them again in the next moment. His humor is surprising and honest, his facial expressions are fall in love with, Okan takes the audience into a fascinating world with a strong community, a rich culture and his own expressive language.
