This show features the following lineup:
Freddi Gralle: As a German pastor’s daughter, the first stages Freddi Gralle spent much time on were those in church. She later ditched the church for comedy, but kept the judgy vibe. Equipped with friendly arrogance, Freddi deep-dives into the existential questions around god, sex and German humor. Her voice is delightfully sarcastic with a strong preference for the auto-biographic.
Freddi has performed all over Germany, in the US, AT, CZ, F and appeared on Germany’s Comedy Central, Nightwash and SKY One. She is also a tv writer for the Late Night Show “Shapira! Shapira!”.
Freddi Gralle is currently touring all over Europe with her first stand-up solo show “CHURCH GIRL, INTERRUPTED” – a personal, sarcastic and true story of her days as an evangelical Jesus girl, then starting to date in Berlin in her mid-30s and getting into stand-up. Where sarcasm meets story-telling and silly sex stories.
Fabian Barahmeh: Half Palestinian – half German. He really a black a man on da inside doe.
His confliction about his identity is evident. He can be screaming “ Free Palestine” and “ Thank You Israel “ in the same sentence.
Two things he is very certain about though , his love for Falafel and white women.
And finally, an extended set from our regular host Nir Gottleid

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.
