English Comedy in Hamburg

This month, we combined the German Kaffeeklatsch und the English tea time and did a Sonntagsspaziergang to an English Stand-up comedyshow called “Ladies of Laughter”. It took place Sunday afternoon at 4pm and was it’s first of a kind. Our location Haus 73, Hamburg’s alternative heart pacer, served tea, coffee, beer and cake. My “comedy brother” Khalid (for some reasons, he refers to me as “sister”, so I give him back the favor) organized the show and booking, did a guest set and brought Rwandan comedian Michael with him, who happened to hang out in Hamburg.  I had fun hosting this afternoon comedy parlor with an international audience. It’s nice to give Hamburg some international comedy flair. Or some comedy flair at all. Opener was Carmen Chraim, originally from Lebanon. In Berlin, she organizes the German-English comedy show “Comedy in Deuglish”. And our headliner was Caroline Clifford (UK), who co-hosts the longest running English comedyshow “We are not gemüsed” in Neukölln. (Running so long, that it actually was the first live comedy show, that I have ever seen in my life. And then thought “I can do that, too”. Four years later, this week, I performed there myself for the first time. Comedy Nostalgia). Recently, I found out how to do photo galleries in WordPress, so I made one for this post. Thanks to Luisa Esch for taking photos that day:
