Welcome to “Master the Dark Arts,” the ultimate workshop for those looking to take their comedic skills to the next level. Join Nir Gottleid, one of Europe’s darkest English language comics, as he shares his knowledge and expertise on the art of dark comedy.

Over the course of this intensive workshop, Nir will guide participants through the intricacies of crafting edgy and thought-provoking material. Drawing from his years of experience producing and running dark comedy shows, Nir will offer unique insights on how to tackle taboo topics with fearless humor and irreverence.

This workshop is perfect for performers and writers who are looking to push their comedic boundaries and explore the depths of dark humor. During this workshop we will go over some of the classic performers, analyze what makes their jokes work, and how to get away with saying things that most people don’t want to hear during a stage performance. Participants will have the opportunity to refine some of their material and gain a deeper understanding of what makes dark comedy work.

So, if you’re ready to take the plunge and embrace the darker side of comedy, don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind workshop! Join Nir Gottleid for “Master the Dark Arts,” and discover the power of fearless and unapologetic comedy.

The workshop is going to be between 1 hour and 90 minutes long, and it is in English.

Following the show we will have an open mic! (see here or here at dark-mo.de) if you would like to sign up for a spot – please just let us know!


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.


Dark Mode is Berlin’s premiere prime time Dark Comedy destination – and is produced and hosted by Nir Gottleid. You can find out all about Dark Mode here: dark-mo.de
