Yesterday, some friends invited me to see Bodo Wartke. If you haven't seen him, check him out: he's really extremely funny, very witty and totally charming. Be warned, though: You should have a pretty firm grip on the German language, otherwise you will miss 80% of his jokes ...
For me most interesting to see was his repeated use of repetition. Not exactly an easy thing to pull off in today's world of 30-second-Youtube-clips. People (including me) are easily bored; when I see the fourth repetition of something, I'll immediately go into moody mode, muttering under my breath "Yes, I know where you are going".
The thing with Bodo Wartke's songs and text is: you actually don't know where he's going.
