In April stuff is different!
Women have been killing the comedy game in Berlin lately with new interesting female acts popping up weekly it seems. So therefore April is about showcasing two of the most exiting new comedy voices in Berlin.

Doro Fesel (DE), Marne (US) & Super Newbie bonus: Jenni Juvonen (FI)


DORO FESEL: Doro Fesel is a stand up comedian from Berlin. But she also does serious things like journalism and writing. She is a twofold youth champion in orgasm faking, which is why she can recognize false laughs with ease. She also has a son and two estranged daughters, all from five different men.

MARNE: Marne is a newcomer to Berlin’s comedy scene. A New Yorker at-large and Berliner since 2010, Marne has been popping up at open mics since November 2016.
Before telling jokes, Marne was a farmhand and once got paid to work on a mussel barge. Marne’s comedy heroes are Maria Bamford, Roseanne, and Daria Morgendorffer. Technically Marne has a last name, but it is difficult to pronounce and easy to Google.

ZACKARIAS BRANZELL: Zackarias Branzell is a comedian, podcaster, host, producer, lover and a friend. He now lives in Berlin where he runs the successful open mics Adorable Creatures - English comedy open mic and Adorable Idiots Open Mic. He also headlines shows every so often and has toured most of Germany by now. He also does a podcast called Zac Interviews the Stars which he really should market better according to some listeners. His comedy has been described as funny and good comedy. Using manly stories and observations from his own life. Known for saying, sometimes, terrible things in a nice way.

New Series of Readings in English

From Expat to Wahlberliner: Berlin as a Place of Work for English-Language Writers

This series of readings in English, presented by the Literary Salon Britta Gansebohm, constitutes a bridge between the English-language and German literary scene in Berlin. The concept of a reading in a setting reminiscent of a spacious and comfortable living room where all are welcome, with the ensuing discussion also including the audience, was an absolutely new idea in May 1995 when Der Literarische Salon was established. This openness is being expanded through the series “From Expat to Wahlberliner.” The target audience of this series comprises Berliners who hail from a wide variety of countries but speak English and little or no German. The series seeks to make a contribution to international understanding and successful coexistence in Berlin by having resident authors present their colleagues to the public. In one instance the pairing is a reciprocal one: The L.A. writer and Berliner-by-choice Kevin McAleer will be moderating the reading of novelist/playwright Carey Harrison, and on another evening Kevin’s presentation of his mock-epic poem on the life of movie star Errol Flynn will be moderated by Mr. Harrison, whose parents were the actors Lilli Palmer and Rex Harrison and through whom Mr. Harrison, this scion of Hollywood’s Golden Age, once encountered the subject of Kevin’s book-length poem. It is through Lilli Palmer that Carey Harrison also has a special relationship to Berlin, his mother having spent her youth in the city before fleeing from the Nazis to Paris and eventually London. The discussions which follow the readings will treat of such questions as: What impact does life in the German capital have on an author’s writing? Does life in Berlin help to idealize or deflate an author’s view of their homeland? How do expats experience this city along with its inhabitants and Germany in general? What makes Berlin such a special place for writers? How has the city changed for the expats since their arrival? What is their relationship to the German language? Can language also be a kind of homeland? How do Berliners-by-choice define the very word “homeland”?


Carey Harrison will be reading from his new novel How to Push Through (Dr. Cicero Books, published in September 2016)
Reading & Discussion, Moderation: Kevin McAleer

How to Push Through

This is the final book in a novel quartet called The Heart Beneath, which Carey Harrison worked on for 48 years. He published other novels during that span, but this tetralogy is really his life’s work. It begins with the rescue of a “wild child,” a Waldmensch or Wolfskind, from the forests of Soviet-occupied East Germany in 1947, where the boy, Egon, has lived alone for more than three years. His father was executed following the 1944 assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler and his mother was sent away to her death in the final throes of the war – though not before hiding her son in the woods. Egon is now seven years old and no longer speaks. The tetralogy follows his rehabilitation into society and his return to the wilderness as a teenager in Britain so as to try and recapture his missing childhood. England and Germany are the twin poles of the tale, and the final book of the tetralogy, How to Push Through, is narrated by four women. They include a girl with whom Egon falls in love, and the elderly German psychoanalyst who brings them together. The girl has grown up in a family full of secrets, and her violent teenage years, in reaction to these secrets, lead her to the psychoanalyst and to Egon. The novel quartet is a love story of two people divorced not only from society but separated by national, social and psychological issues.

Carey Harrison is an English novelist and dramatist. He was born in 1944 in London to actors Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer and raised in Los Angeles and New York where he attended the Lycée Français. He is the author of forty stage plays and sixteen novels. Harrison’s most recent novels Justice and Who Was That Lady? have been acclaimed by readers and both reached No.1 on the Amazon Contemporary Fiction downloads list. His latest novel How to Push Through was published in 2016. (...)

Kevin McAleer was born in Santa Monica, California in 1961. He received his doctorate in history from the University of California and now lives in Berlin where he works as a writer and translator. His short stories have been published both in American magazines as well as in the German satire magazine Titanic, in taz and in TIP magazine. He is co-author of the story collection Zwei Amerikaner im deutschen Exil (1998; 2016), author of the award-winning play Bombay by the Spree (2010), the novels Surferboy (2007; 2015) and Berlin Tango (2016) and the historical monograph Dueling: The Cult of Honor in Fin-de-Siècle Germany (1994; 2014) which was honored by the Encyclopaedia Britannica as one of their “Books of the Year.” He has recently brought to completion his decade-long project “Errol Flynn: A Life in Verse,” which is a book-length, mock-epic poem on the swashbuckling Hollywood actor.

Cameryn Moore: PHONE WHORE

Cameryn Moore is a critically acclaimed playwright/performer, writer, host, educator, and sidewalk pornographer. Her work in theatre, literature, and activism/advocacy is both a challenge and invitation to adventurous audiences everywhere. She has received multiple awards on the Canadian Fringe circuit for her work, and has performed to packed houses around North America and the UK. She is the writer and performer of five solo shows: Phone Whore, slut (r)evolution, for | play, The Pretty One (and other things that need to be said), and nerdfucker. Cameryn is the creator and frequent host of Smut Slam, a storytelling open mic featuring real-life, first-person sex stories; and BEDx, a mini-conference for sex geeks in a bar. When not performing, Cameryn sets up her world-famous traveling Smut Stand, providing bespoke typewritten erotica on the spot to happy drunks and discerning passersby.

Truth and taboo collide in this intimate visit with a phone sex operator. Sit back and buckle up. A slice-of-life comedy/drama, Phone Whore invites audiences in for an unflinching look at taboo, fantasy, and the place of “deviant” desires in society today. Award-winning playwright and performer Cameryn Moore draws extensively on her work experiences at a no-taboo service to flesh out both the absurdities and difficult truths that pervade the world of phone sex.
**** Post-show Q&A with the artist!

Falko Hennig: einziger Radio Hochsee Abend 2017!

CUBA MI AMOR mit Dr. Manfred Maurenbrecher

Ein karibischer Abend mitten im April.

Der bekannte Musiker und Schriftsteller Manfred Maurenbrecher ist seit vielen Jahren sympathisierender Beobachter der kubanischen Verhältnisse, nun hat er mit seiner Frau erstmals die Karibik-Insel besucht und mit Bild, Gespräch und mehr zeigt er, warum seine Begeisterung noch gewachsen ist.

Falko Hennig war vor einem Jahr zu einem Konzert der Rolling Stones in Havanna, seine zweite Reise nach Kuba nach 10 Jahren. Bei großer Begeisterung für Land, Leute, Klima und Kultur sieht er verschiedene Aspekte des realen Sozialismus kritisch, vielleicht durch seine Sozialisierung in der DDR.

Für beide gilt CUBA MI AMOR.

Rigoletti & Halschke

Nici Halschke schreibt Briefe an Prominente, ungefragt und seit Jahren. An Politiker, Filmgrößen und Pornostars. Topaktuell, hochbrisant und frankly: quite unverblümt.

Rigoletti will Bundespräsidentin werden. Und sie ist ideal geeignet für dieses Amt! Schon als Kind (Politikertochter) hat sie repräsentative Aufgaben übernommen.
