Dark Mode – The Loose Stool Open Mic!

December 2, 2023 10:30 pm 11:59 pm CET

Professional and semi professional comics spewing out their undigested thoughts at you. A show for horrible people and horrible comics!

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


The Loose Stool is a dark comedy open mic where comics share their loosely formed… thoughts with you, the audience! There will be old jokes, there will be new jokes, and there will definitely be some horrible thoughts!


Nir Gottleid (@thenireast on instagram) is an Israeli comic who has performed 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 humour, 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.
