Berlinistan – A Comedy Show About Being Muslim in Berlin
Thursday, October 7 | 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dave Chappelle said comedy is about reconciling paradox. What greater paradox than trying to be a man of faith in Berlin – the city of drugs, sex dungeons and devilish temptation (AKA drugs and sex dungeons).
Join Toby Arsalan, German-Pakistani comedian extraordinaire, on a journey of jokes about belief and bike lanes, the universe and the U-Bahn, heaven and Kottbusser Tor!
“In countries where there are no horses, donkeys are called horses.”
And in countries like Germany, Toby Arsalan gets to call himself a comedian. Toby has toured three continents, featured on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and opened for comedy legends like Todd Barry and Judah Friedlander.
Before Corona, Toby could be seen on international comedy stages across the world. Since Corona, Toby has been seen mostly in Spätis that sell Ben & Jerry’s. Plus he’s been writing scripts for the popular German YouTube channel “Datteltäter”.
