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 present top international 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. Since February, you are 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:
John Lynn (IRE)
John says he first caught the stand-up bug after visiting a comedy club in Dublin, when he realised that making a clown out of himself wasn’t all that bad. Since then, he’s barely paused for breath, having performed at Montreal’s Just for Laughs festival, appearing on stage in America, Europe and the Middle East, and putting on solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. We’re looking forward to his Quatsch premiere.
“The rising star of Irish comedy” – Sunday Times
Dana Alexander (CAN)
One of Canada’s most hilarious comedians is returning to Quatsch for the third time. Her comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family. After many successful years in the UK and on the European circuit her act is more international than ever.
“…warmly funny with an impishly sarcastic sense of humour.” – Chortle
Sol Bernstein (UK/USA)
We’re thrilled to have Sol Bernstein, the world’s oldest working Jewish comedian, back with us. Sol is a living legend who has performed all over the world at venues like the London Palladium and New York’s Carnegie Hall. After 25 years of semi-retirement, playing nursing homes, he is back where he belongs: in smoky nightclubs performing for drunks. And now he’s returning to Berlin for his third appearance at Quatsch.
“Bernstein’s the real deal, you’d better believe it!” – The Scotsman
Dusseldorf local hero: Jeron Dewulf (BEL) A Flemish actor and stand-up comedian of Chilean descent, Jeron is known from his appearances on Belgian TV. He’s also a regular at The Joker comedy café in Antwerp and has toured extensively. An internationally renowned improviser, he won the Improv World Cup in Berlin and is now bringing his talents to Dusseldorf for one night only.
The Strictly Stand Up Show in April can not take place because of the current situation.
