Seats reserved until 5 minutes before the show starts
After a two year plus hiatus including a pandemic, team changes, and more – Europe’s premiere dark comedy show in English is BACK.
The Dark Mode Late Show is a new addition to our show roster – featuring both new and experienced standup comedians, trying new material or trying old material. A cavaclade of people who attempt to make you laugh will go one by one and hit you with the darkest things they can think of. Anything can happen and we sometimes have special guests!
THIS SHOW IS THE LOOSE STOOL SHOW!
Usually open mics in Berlin have professional and new comics alike, each getting a short 5-7 minute set where they get to experiment. This one is a bit different: fewer comics; more experienced ones; and longer times on the stage. No pressure. Just professional comics having a nice evening with you! There will be old jokes, there will be new jokes, and there will definitely be some horrible thoughts!
YOUR LINEUP FOR TONIGHT:
ABI MOHANTY (IND):
Abi is a Berlin based comedian.Born in India, she didn’t go far from the stereotype of being a software engineer. While that fills her pockets, comedy fills the void in her heart. Currently converting childhood trauma into jokes one show at a time, Abi has been performing all over Europe, usually in places where Ryanair goes.
PAUL SALAMONE (US):
Paul Salamone is an energetic American who’s performed standup, sketch, improv and musical comedy in Germany since 2007. Having done everything from three separate runs at Edinburgh Fringe to writing for Comedy Central Germany’s “Roast Battle” and ZDF Neo’s “Shapira Shapira”, Paul’s act is physical, interactive, and darkly absurd.
SCOTT REYNOLDS (CAN):
Scott was born and raised in Toronto, and moved to Germany in 2013 to pursue graduate studies in classical music. He began performing comedy in the summer of 2018, and quickly began winning over audiences by drawing on his unique perspective as a white, straight male with a middle-class suburban upbringing.
FABIAN BARAHMEH (PAL):
Half Palestinian – half German. He really a black a man on da inside doe.
His confliction about his identity is evident. He can be screaming “ Free Palestine” and “ Thank You Israel “ in the same sentence.
Two things he is very certain about though , his love for Falafel and white women.
YOUR HOST AND SHOW RUNNER NIR GOTTLEID:
Nir Gottleid (@thenireast on instagram) is an Israeli comic who has performed in the throughout Europe, the US, and Israel. He has come to Germany to, as he says, “make Germans feel uncomfortable as a form of reparations”; he would prefer to date Germans to achieve his goal, but sadly German women have intelligence, common sense, and eyes — therefore he’s forced to do comedy instead. His combination of dark humor, self-deprecation, and obscene “dad jokes” will leave him in stitches, because you are very likely to stab him after his set.

Nir has been touring Europe, and has produced multiple successful shows such as “The Berlin Offensive”, “Schindler’s Fist”, and more. He is widely regarded as the darkest comedian in the English comedy scene in Germany and more than meets that expectation by awkwardly talking to audiences about things he most definitely shouldn’t be talking about.
His first solo show, “The Revenge of the Jew-Di” is a 60 to 90 minute exploration of holocaust puns, the life of an Israeli expat in Germany, dating in modern day Berlin, and more. It is currently on tour in Germany and Europe and you can get tickets and see show times here!
Nir is touring with his second solo show as well, “Middle Rage”, and talks about the fun sides of depression, anxiety, cats, hate crimes dating as a single old man, and the bitterness rage and feeling of acceptance that can only come with a life exhaustively lived.
