In this day and age, a good laugh is one that gets stuck in your throat. Reiner Kröhnert reliably delivers here. Whether he's parodying Trump, Robert Habeck, Boris Becker or Klaus Kinski, among many others, he always creates in the viewer the feeling of getting to know the parodied persons in a new, sometimes disturbingly funny way.
The fact that, despite biting criticism, he never crosses the line into defamation makes Kröhnert a cabaret artist and parodist to be taken seriously - while at the same time keeping the laughter where it belongs: in the throat.
In his 14th program "ER", however, he lets it rip in such a creepy way that the laughter not only sticks in your throat, but also sends an ice-cold shiver down your spine. Because the future belongs to the 1.98 meter tall Teutonic Friedrich Merz. He is lying in wait for any power gap that presents itself, and so the sword of Damocles of an impending Merz revolution hangs over the wobbly traffic light.
None other than the old master of political parody cabaret Reiner Kröhnert, also 1.98 meters, embodies Friedrich Merz so authentically in size, facial expressions and language that one could almost speak of a double Friederich. Curtain up, for Reiner Kröhnert pikant-brisantes Prominenten-Panoptikum! He knows that "laughter is the last weapon of hope". Enjoy!
