Performance in English
“Michael is very funny and German. If you don’t believe either of these things – go check him out.” – Eddie Izzard
“Michael finds truth in the absurd and absurdity in the truth. He is very, very, very funny and I’m his biggest fan…all 5 foot 8 of me.” – Bono, U2
“Manifestly quick witted…teasingly intelligent…quite wilkomen, I’d say.” – (Four Star Review) The Telegraph
“He demolishes cultural stereotypes…peppered with uproarious one-liners that conclusively prove Mittermeier’s overriding theory: the term “German Comedian” is not an oxymoron.” – (Four Star Review) Metro
Eddie Izzard invites you to experience the U.S. premiere of German comedic superstar, Michael Mittermeier in his critically-acclaimed show, Das Blackout, running October 22, 23, 24, 28 & 29 at Culture Project in NYC.

Das Blackout delivers an insider’s guide to Earth’s final frontier: the fascinatingly dark landscape of the German soul – a mysterious place where guilt, Schadenfreude and bratwurst reside. In these dark times of global strife Bavaria’s comedy powerhouse saves us from universal political idiocy. And who could observe the world and its current affairs better, than one who´s ancestors were dumb enough to try and rule it, something scores of James Bond villains with accents repeatedly failed at.
Michael Mittermeier is a trail blazer of stand-up comedy in his native Germany winning a multitude of awards for his live sold-out shows with DVD/CD sales reaching more than 2.5 million in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. He has headlined and solo performed internationally in English in the UK, South Africa, Canada, Russia, and in many more countries all over Europe and he opened for U2 in Berlin.
Many call him the funniest voice of Germany and he has entertained millions of fans. Undoubtedly he is one of the reasons they have been peaceful for quite some time now. And now he is riding westward, fun blazing, to win the hearts of America. And to check out if Donald Trump really exists.
And while Michael Mittermeier may not be the first German who’s tried to conquer the world, he’s certainly the first to try it with laughter as ammo.
