Ironically, the Quatsch Comedy Club isn’t even originally from Berlin, but ever since Thomas Hermann brought the comedy format to the capital, it has been as much a part of Berlin as currywurst is. The fact that the comedians appear in the basement of the prestigious Friedrichstadt-Palast tells you how well the hosts choose their stage talent.
Every week new. Every week live.
One of the fixtures of the Quatsch Comedy Club is THE LIVE SHOW, a series with a new show every week featuring a roster of four comedians, who show their stand-up skills from Wednesday to Saturday. The show is compèred by another comedian.
The programme always includes guest appearances from well-known faces. Nearly all the veterans in the comedy business have regularly appeared here. They include Dave Davis, Rüdiger Hoffmann, Bernhard Hoëcker and Olaf Schubert to name just a few. Even international comedians such as John Doyle have long considered the Quatsch Comedy Club a second home.
Where do I get tickets for the Quatsch Comedy Club?
Tickets are available online or directly at the box office. There are always a few tickets on the door for last-minute visitors. Only a limited number of seats can be reserved, so get there in time to get a good one. Groups of ten or more can make a reservation including catering.
The Quatsch talent search
On the first Friday of each month, ten new talents compete for the Quatsch Comedy Club’s prize for newcomers.
The audience is the jury, and you decide who goes through to the next round and ultimately wins the prize. Starting out is never easy, but Cindy from Marzahn, David Werker, Murat Topal and Lisa Feller have all come through the ranks at the Quatsch talent show and started their careers from there. Fingers crossed for everyone who takes part!
