Early Bird Dark Off Finals – DM #85 – 20/4/24
The early bird gets the worm!

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 IS THE DARK OFF FINALS! After enduring the comedic gauntlet, we’ve whittled down over 20 hopeful jesters to the final three gladiators of giggles. Each will take the stage, armed with nothing but their wits and a microphone, for a no-holds-barred, 15-minute comedy throwdown! The champion will walk away with a whopping 50 euros and merch that’ll make their rivals weep with envy—or from laughing, we’re not quite sure. The runner-up? A not-too-shabby 25 euros and merch, ensuring their tears of defeat are, at least, branded. So, buckle up for a night where laughter is currency, and the comedy is so dark, you’ll need night vision goggles.


Mila Panic (@panic_mila): Mila Panic, born in Bosnia, is a stand-up comedian and artist, which makes her double unemployed. Her comedic style is dark, laced with deep, intelligent irony.

Sofia May (@sofiamaycomedy): Sofia May was raised in NYC on a strict diet of REN and Stimpy and bad boundaries. She likes to tell dark jokes about cutesy things and cutesy jokes about dark things.

Sepideh (@sepcomedy): Sepideh is a stand-up comedian based in Berlin. She grew up in the Middle East, spoiled by oil money and patriarchy, and came to Europe to pursue her dream of becoming an average engineer. Her humor has been described as dark and gross while shedding light on unnecessary truths.


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.


Dark Mode is Berlin’s premiere prime time Dark Comedy destination – and is produced and hosted by Nir Gottleid. You can find out all about Dark Mode here: https://dark-mo.de
