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 is the t heat of DARK/OFF! I’m sick and tired of booking comics that think that they are dark but still don’t understand what pain is. That’s why in this show, comics will enter the ring one by one. After each comic you will get to vote, was this dark enough or not? The darkest comic of the night wins an entire TEN EUROS, but also the title of “Dark Off Master”; then he can dark his friends off too! Am I overrelying on this pun in the copy? Yes, but it’s early in the day and I’m tired.
There will be other heats to follow culminating with the final dark off of this year! Stay tuned!
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.
You can see some of his work here!

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.
