Strictly Stand Up: that’s the English-language comedy show from Quatsch Comedy Club, the oldest and most famous comedy venue in Germany. Five times a year, we fly in top English-speaking club comics from all over the world to perform live on stage, to give you stand-up comedy the way it was meant to be: up close, in your face, and live.
After more than five successful seasons in Berlin, we thought it was high time to let another German city share in the laughs, and we picked Düsseldorf. Starting in February, you’ll be able to enjoy three top international club comics plus one hot local act, always presented by your lovely and talented host, Christian Schulte-Loh. Get that New York and London comedy club feeling right in your own back yard. And each show is always for one night only – blink and you’ll miss it!
Look forward to these fabulous comedians:
