HENNING WEHN: EINS, ZWEI, DIY (UK Tour)
“A diplomatic master class” The Scotsman
After more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has ‘groan’ to like puns…. though he still couldn’t eat a whole one.
As Henning’s assimilation is not yet complete he hasn’t lost his sense of Westphalian wonderment at the foibles of British society.
Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What’s wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement? You’ve only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class.
Expect a crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar!
“Brought the audience to its knees” The Telegraph
“Marvellous” The Guardian
