The Bottrop cabaret artist Benjamin Eisenberg again invites to the "New Year's Cabaret". After the successful Cologne premiere in 2023, the popular cabaret mix show will also come to the cathedral city at the beginning of 2024.
Together with his cabaret colleagues, Eisenberg wants to give the audience a humorous start to the new year. Past things can be laughed about, and future things are cheerfully anticipated. The cabaret artist from "Innovation City" always has the current topics from politics and society in his sights and always brings parodies of well-known personalities into his multimedia all-round performance.
In order to offer the audience a varied evening of stand-up comedy, political satire, witty poetry and musical cabaret, he has invited very different stage colleagues who are likely to be well known to the audience in the cathedral city.
A regular guest is piano cabaret artist Matthias Reuter, whose songs and lyrics are often played on WDR radio. The "Elton John from Oberhausen" not only presents funny stories from his books and whimsical jazzy songs on the piano, but also often has his guitar in his luggage. He is currently touring with his brand new solo "Höchstwahrscheinlich echt". Because that's what he guarantees in times of AI. His lyrics contain views that no computer would ever share. He probably also has some of his new 60-second poems with him, in which he summarizes classics such as "Wilhelm Tell" or "Die Hard". - With his motto "positively against", Reuter has already won many an award in recent years: "Tegtmeier's Heirs" (2011), the "Dresden Satire Prize" 2019 (jury and audience award) or the "Herborn Schlumpeweck" (2020) are just a few of them.
Dagmar Schönleber promises cabaret, comedy and music for swimmers, country bumpkins and top performers. It's about waves of all kinds, hot air and a bit of social politics. The native of East Westphalia takes care of the funny little things of everyday life as well as the big issues (the future of mankind, love, hate and vacuum cleaner robots) and shows that stability can only come from flexibility. She combines punk rock with poetry, herself with the audience and words with music, whether with guitar or fat beats, ballad or disco. In short: Here is everything from "Huch!" to "Hossa!" and that has already won several awards. - The Cologne native has been on stage for over 20 years and is known nationwide also for her appearances in "Ladies Night" (ARD) or "Pufpaffs Happy Hour" (3sat) as well as for her role as Frau Schochz in the popular WDR show "Stratmanns".
Not unique, but Heinzig-like is the third comedian: Heinz Gröning alias "Der unglaubliche Heinz". The Cologne comedian - a professional entertainer for over 30 years - comes with classics and excerpts from his latest program: "Fifty Shades of Heinz!" Of course, it runs again according to the motto: If you think you are poorly, remember one thing: What is Kevin today, was Heinz in the past. And: Earlier wasn't better, it was just longer ago - and you can't remember it so well anymore. Heinz Gröning believes in the power of laughter and the healing effect of problem-free laughing zones. But he doesn't mince his words when it comes to pillorying the scumbags of our time. Heinz is an incorrigible optimist in search of the sense in nonsense. A mixture of poetic word acrobatics on a world-class level and wonderful sing-along melodies to the guitar is his recipe for success. His motto: "Heinz remains Heinz, as he sings and you laugh."
