After a two year plus hiatus including a pandemic, team changes, and more – Europe’s premiere dark comedy show in English is BACK.

Dark Mode Prime Time features an all pro lineup of non-stop cavalcade of offensive humour, holocaust jokes, and vivid discussions of necrophilia. Comics will take to the stage to discuss such wide ranging topics from pediatric cancer to why Germans love asparagus so much. Comics on the Prime Time show are typically professional comedians who have extensive touring experience & TV credits. This is not your standard Berlin open mic.

This prime time show features our own host Nir Gottleid with his second solo “Middle Rage” after a 12 show run at the Edinburgh Fringe and several performances with it around Berlin – just before going on another 5 show run at the Brighton Fringe!


Being in your 20s is glorious; being in your 30s is a joy. Being in your 40s sucks, because your 40s are when you finally realize all the things you’ve done wrong in your life so far. Nir Gottleid, Berlin’s darkest comic, shares his feelings about turning 40 – 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 belatedly realizing how thoroughly you fouled up your life until now. Not for the faint of heart! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to die.

ABOUT NIR GOTTLEID (@thenireast):

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.
