Sold out around the world, from Sydney to Chicago, from London to Auckland, 5-Step Guide to Being German is award-winning German comedian Paco Erhard’s comical mission to set the record straight about his “charming, crazy mishap of a country”. A reaction to the British people’s stereotypes about Germany, 5-Step Guide to Being German delivers “an extremely clever analysis of the modern German psyche” (Independent Daily, AUS) that is “side-splittingly funny and violently politically incorrect” (The Argus, UK). The show was nominated for the Fringe World Best Comedy Award in 2013.
Paco Erhard shows audiences the Germany behind the scenes, as he deals with topics as varied as German bluntness (“we just value honesty more highly than other people’s feelings”), hilarious dilemmas on the Autobahn, the secret behind lederhosen, and how it feels to have to grow up with Germany’s horrible past.
You will laugh. If you want. Zis is not an order.
