Okay … normally, April Fool's jokes are somewhat lame, and I have a tendency not to repost them. But this one … this one is pretty cool.
Actually, it's a pity that it's just an April Fool's joke. With good writing and engaging characters, this show would have potential. Hat tip to Chris (or, actually, one of his friends – anyway, without being Facebook friends with Chris, I would not have found this).
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.
