The World has made fun of the Germans for too long…now the tables have turned! After an outstanding sell-out London debut at Soho Theatre and a successful total sell-out season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, German comedian Michael Mittermeier returns to Soho Theatre with A German on Safari, his first full-length English stand-up show.
Michael Mittermeier is a comic force of nature on a cross country adventure through the Bavarian and African Jungles via the world’s high-rises and highlands. From the tranquillity of the savannah to the perils of New York’s inhabitants, Michael’s frantic pace carries his audience along with a physical presence and comic dexterity you may not have come to expect from a German. Michael Mittermeier is a trail blazer of stand up comedy in his native Germany winning a multitude of awards for his live sell out shows with DVD/CD sales reaching Gold and Platinum status in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
He has performed internationally in German and English in Switzerland, UK, US, South Africa and Canada, and supported U2 in Berlin.
‘He demolishes cultural stereotypes… peppered with uproarious one-liners that conclusively prove Mittermeier’s overriding theory: the term ‘german comedian’ is not an oxymoron.’ ★★★★ Metro
‘Manifestly quick-witted… teasingly intelligent… quite wilkomen, I’d say.’ ★★★★ Telegraph
‘Michael is very funny and German. If you don’t believe either of these things – go and check him out.’ Eddie Izzard
‘Charismatic and full of energy… at times my face hurt from laughing so much… an outstanding example of observational comedy, insightful and exuberant.’ ★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
