The Humour Act
Friday, April 21, 2023 | 11:00pm – 11:59pm
What is comedy? What role does it serve? How do jokes bind us together, and how can they keep us apart? These are some of the most important questions in the burgeoning research field of phenomenological humour theory.
Other comedians will tell you these questions bear no import. “They’re just jokes!” the fools cry, eyes full of need, desperately seeking audience validation for their horrendous personalities. Fortunately, Matthew Liam Healy is not like other comedians.
In this work-in-progress comedy performance the amateur humour theorist and no-time winner of the Berlin New Stand-Up Award will seek to answer these questions definitively. But in a way that’s still funny, don’t worry. It’s at Comedy Café Berlin – if it’s not funny they’ll make us all leave.
Masks are no longer required in the theatre, though we strongly encourage it.
If you are feeling unwell, please stay home!
Doors open 15 minutes before scheduled show time. Please be aware that seats may be released at show time and latecomers may be denied entry or given standing room entry.
Tickets, if available, may be purchased at the bar with a 2€ surcharge.
No refunds on ticket sales!
Unless otherwise stated, all shows are in English.
Please enjoy a drink at the bar before and after the show! (It’s how we keep the doors open.)
In partnership with Berlin English Improv Network and Comedy in English Berlin.
