Comedy Hosting for spacebase at New York Loft Hamburg

I like this story of Tom Waits driving in his car on the freeway, when suddenly a divine inspiration hits him with the melody of the best song ever to be written. He cries to the Heavens “oh God why now, not now, don’t you see I’m driving? I can’t write down the melody anywhere. Go to Leonard Cohen. He probably got time.”
I may have come up with jokes while driving before.  I have definitely never written a good joke at a desk. Divine inspiration doesn’t like office atmospheres. I write them in bed, in the car like Waits, on the bus like Eminem in 8Mile. And mostly walking. Never go on a hike without a cane, a pen and a piece of paper! I have heard of companies, that made the Mittagsspaziergang mandatory.
Have I worked at a desk? Oh yes! Brooding over a joke, elaborating it, re-rewriting it and finally casting it into the trash bin marked „why did I even think this was funny“? Multiple times. Pedanticus, the God of accuracy and persnicketiness, inhales office air. There is a reason why administrations don’t have ball baths and pin pong tables. Files would vanish and reference numbers smudge. Where is file No. 84692? Eh, somewhere stuck between the lounge seats.
So if walking doesn’t keep the mind going, why not rent a creative office at a gas station or a boxing range? Yes, those exists. And I met the people, who rent them out. Two weeks ago, I got to know the Berlin start-up spacebase, specialized in renting out office spaces – ordinary and not so ordinary. And I hosted their networking event “Club der Office Visionäre” in Hamburg. Thank you for a fun, interesting and tasty evening. Here are some impressions:

This used to be a blog

Hi there! This used to be my blog. But it got hacked. Three fans informed me about it:

 

"Möglicherweise"
“Möglicherweise”

 

It was hacked by some Japanese lemonade shop and for a minute I was just like “guess that’s what I’do now. I got fig, kiwi and dragonfruit”.

Getting my hacked website fixed was, for several months, one of the biggest lies I have told myself, right after Late Night Shows not being able to contact me via it. (No Late Night Show contacted me, I think. After restoring my mail system, the only emails I got during the malfunction are a Flixbus commercial, an indeed invitation and my numerous test emails [with every test email a cruder subject]).

 

While I was fixing my website I followed this general advice:

Well, I didn’t make my deep down dreams come true yet. But surely getting closer to it. This year, I did stand-up comedy for several months in San Francisco to become better. I started doing improv comedy to become quicker. And I started drawing cartoons to become sharper. I organized my first very own comedy shows to become better at hosting and crowd work. Not everything gets better: I still have crazy eyes:

While I get this blog rolling again, I’m thankful that you came back here. Thanks for not buying japanese juice instead!
