About the Event
Every month, Berlin's zaniest late-night talk-show host welcomes a star-studded lineup of Berlin's best performers to the stage for an amazing night of comedy and cabaret.
FREDDIE GRALLE (DE) - Feminist comedian and expert in masculinity VERY CONFUSED (FR) - A mysterious sideshow freak creature CADBURY PARFAIT (UK) - Sassy sumptuous classic burlesque And of course your esteemed host, RICHARD P DICK VAN JOHNSON himself aka DUCKIE L'ORANGE (AU)
FREDDI GRALLE (DE) As a German pastor’s daughter, the first stages Freddi Gralle spent much time on were those in church. Now that she is doing comedy, being judgmental comes in very handy. Freddi is frighteningly confident and self-deprecating at the same time. Her comedy embraces the existential crises around God, sex, and the challenge of making Germans laugh. Freddi has performed all over Germany, in the US, AT, CZ, F and appeared on Germany’s Comedy Central, Nightwash and SKY One. She is also a tv writer for the Late Night Show “Shapira! Shapira!” https://freddigralle.com/
CADBURY PARFAIT (UK) British-born but living it up across the EU, Cadbury is an international burlesque performer and producer. Winner of "Most Classic" at the Shimmy Shake Down at Berlin Burlesque Week 2019. She has been on the stage since she was three, not stripping mind you, she's been doing that for just over four years. Cadbury serves classic moves, sassiness and tongue in cheek humour. She also is a co-producer for Extravagant Shambles, a fabulous cabaret evening in Berlin and she teaches theatrical burlesque at the Shimmy Shake School of Burlesque Berlin. https://www.instagram.com/cadburyparfait
VERY CONFUSED (FR) Straight from the 4th dimensions, this vision appearing on your reality like a virus is named Very Confused. The pride of underground emotions, trip on catharsis and traveller of our matrix, this water colored clown transcends gender, words and realities. Very Confused is an it, it’s a thing, it’s an idea only you is able to see, understand and feel. It’s a part of you, a part of your unsaid thoughts because you were taught to be scared to admit that you didn’t understand, that you were, also Very Confused. Cabaret of our matrix where genders become clowns, art becomes magician, words become lions and elephants, Very Confused orchestrates this circus making you believe none of this is real and all of this is a show, a performance, a vision. But Very Confused is actually very sure. Trust me. You are Very Confused, I am not Very Confused. https://www.instagram.com/iam.veryconfused
DUCKIE L'ORANGE is the alter ego of your fine host Richard P Dick Van Johnson. She's a performance artist with a twist - Her recent performance on German television program Das Supertalent went viral and plunged her into worldwide notoriety. She does weird and wacky interactive performances for kids, and equally wacky but significantly dirtier shows for adults. She’s been all around town like a hipster on a vintage bicycle – from performing at the Sydney Opera House, barking in a steam punk carnival with Antigua i Barbuda at Sydney Festival, touring Germany with the Puppetry Slam Berlin & creating shows in the jungles of Kalimantan and Timor Leste.
