Johann König: from shy poet to stage master
König was born in the German city of Soest and later trained to be a paediatric nurse in the region of Westphalia. While continuing with his studies, he was recognised by his peers for his sharp wit and so performed a poetry recital at an open mic night at a comedy club in Cologne. His material went down so well with the crowd that he continued to attend literary festivals, poetry slams, comedy nights and cabaret events in the region, with poems and performances that became increasingly bizarre. 1999 saw his first solo act on the stage – "Alles Spekulatur! Johann Köhnich liest, singt und macht" – and the following years saw his reputation steadily grow, with the comedian winning the German Comedy Prize in 2001 and the Bavarian Cabaret Award in 2002. Since then he has been recognised as a leader in German comedy with an ability to write incredibly witty material and improvise on the spot.

Weak voice, strong material
Well-known across the German-speaking world as a high-quality comic, König is immediately recognisable on the stage. He usually adopts a nervously awkward persona that only intensifies his hilarious observations, while his hoarse voice is his trademark and the reason for naming his live show "Jubel, Trubel, Heiserkeit (Hustle, Bustle, Hoarseness)." In 2008, the comedian performed a ten-year anniversary show by returning to the location of his first performance and reflecting on his journey from shy poet to an in-demand comedian who has appeared on national television and at some of the German comedy circuit’s biggest venues. König has performed a number of solo shows, each one with its own weird and wonderful character, and has also published books, released CDs, and appeared in feature-length films, making him one of Germany’s best-loved comics. If you’re already a fan of performers such as Olaf Schubert, Rüdiger Hoffmann or Paul Panzer, make sure you’re at this comedian’s next show for an unforgettable evening of laughter.
