Welcome to “Dark Stars” – the home of comedy that’s not afraid of the dark and shines a spotlight into the shadows. We dive deep into topics others shy away from. Hosted by Nir Gottleid, a master of dark humor, every show is an adventure into humor’s wild side.

Our comedians? They love to play with shadowy jokes and aren’t scared to push boundaries. Get ready for a night where laughs are dark, bold, and hit right where it counts.

Our line up this show is:

Eyal Wartelsky (@eyalwartelsky, @twojewscomedy):

Eyal Wartelsky is an Israeli-Jewish Stand-Up Comedian who has been performing in Berlin since 2019. He is part of the musical comedy duo Two Jews. His comedy is autobiographical and introspective but also tries to find humor in the darker and absurd aspects of life.

Ori Halevy (@orihalevy_bigoldjew)

Ori Halevy is a well known Israeli and international TV and Cinema writer and standup comedian. His funny “go for broke” improvisational style has him performing every night in different venues in Berlin and throughout Europe and Asia.

Abi Mohanty (@absicomedy):

Abi is a Berlin based comedian. Born in India, she didn’t go far from the stereotype of being a software engineer. While that fills her pockets, comedy fills the void in her heart. Currently converting childhood trauma into jokes one show at a time, Abi has been performing all over Europe, usually in places where Ryanair goes.

Mark Beadle (@markybeadle):

Mark is originally from south London and like all the best comedians is a follower of Crystal Palace. He has performed all over Europe and lives in Berlin where he has hosted shows for many years including the legendary ‘The Nose’. Mark is also a qualified archaeologist which, like comedy, is a great way of not making money. He likes red wine if you´re asking.

Join us for an evening where we laugh at the things you’re not supposed to. “Dark Stars” isn’t just a comedy show; it’s where we make sure you feel the right kind of pain.

At “Dark Stars,” we light up the night with comedy that just like favorite cup of coffee: dark, bitter, and based on centuries of racial oppression.

Looking for the latest on who’s daring to tread the dark comedy stage at Dark Stars? Our lineups rotate faster than a comedian’s mood swings! To catch the freshest faces in dark humor, keep an eye on our social media @darkmodecomedy and @thenireast as well as our website at https://dark-mo.de

Doors are at 20:00 – show starts at 20:30!

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.
