International Comedy Showcase – Joke Life (Berlin)
March 16 @ 21:00 - 23:30
After killer shows throughout Europe, Joke Life is coming to Berlin!!
James Rankin and Kirthy Iyer will not deny the universal fact that ‘Life is hard’. These two comedians have dealt with tough situations in love life, thug life, high life, street life, married life, corporate life and cultural life but have now finally found some form of redemption in ‘Joke Life’. It’s this mockery of their lives that forges their uncanny alliance which creates this unique stand-up comedy show.
Crappy late night dinners, cheap hotels, and complicated relationships are some of the key perks/punishments of living the ‘Joke Life’, all worth it as long as you guys are laughing.
★★★★★★★★★★ Kirthy Iyer (IND) ★★★★★★★★★★★★
“A darkly comic undercurrent full of intelligent insights”
– Nik Coppin, Comedian
“Kirthy Iyer is an extremely talented and unique voice on the comedy scene” – World Wide Comedy
Born and raised in India, studied in Canada, and surviving in Germany” this international background makes Kirthy so special that even he wants to punch himself! However, after multiple black-eyes, Kirthy turned to stand-up comedy instead and not only has he been a crowd favourite on stage, he has also become the founder of the ever growing English comedy scene in Frankfurt. He has performed all over Germany, Poland, and the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with having no difficulty whatever in keeping the audience in stitches. A comic who does irritable, cynical and brutally honest riffs about anything and everything from his life. When not ranting on stage, Kirthy spends the majority of his time in his recluse, drawing comics, animating, writing stories and occasionally answering to bowel movements.
★★★★★★★★★★ James Rankin (AUS) ★★★★★★★★★★
“His natural gift of finding comedy in real-life experiences is both captivating and hilarious.” ★★★★★
“Hanging on his every word”
“We couldn’t stop laughing, it was laugh-a-minute!”
