Prepare for a night of smokey dankness as Berlin’s Darkest Comedy show celebrates 4/20!

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


Dive deep into the smokey depths this 4/20 at Z-Bar, where history’s haze meets today’s blaze in Dank Mode‘s late show. It’s not just any night; it’s the night we light up the stage with Berlin’s dankest comedians, all ready to spark up your laughter with their high-caliber comedy.

🍃 The High Points:

  • When? 4/20, because on this date, legends were born, and others… well, let’s just say they really burnt out.
  • Where? Z-Bar, the only place that gets cloudier indoors.
  • Doors: 22:15 – slip in like smoke under the door.
  • Showtime: 22:30 – when the real trip begins.

This isn’t your garden-variety comedy night. It’s a session where hilarity and history collide. From the birth of deep thoughts to the kindling of revolutions, 4/20 has seen it all. Now, it’s time to add uncontrollable laughter to the list.

Our lineup? Berlin’s finest stoners, so baked, they’re practically historical monuments. They’ll be rolling out their best material, guaranteed to be more lit than a bonfire in a prohibition era. Expect a show so punchy, you’ll feel it in your very soul – or at least your funny bone.

Dank Mode on 4/20 at Z-Bar: where the only thing higher than the stakes are the performers. Prepare for a night of dark, dank comedy that’s bound to leave you in stitches, proving once and for all that the only thing we’re serious about is comedy. Forget the history books; this is one for the memoirs. Let’s blaze a trail of laughter together and make this 4/20 a date that will be remembered for all the right reasons.

YOUR HOST: 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.

“has a command of the traditional pace, rhythms and tightly written gags of stand-up that assure you that you’re in capable hand”, “a flair for gags that make you wince and laugh in equal measure”, “a self loathing stoner” – Chortle, UK

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.
