5-Step Guide to Being German by PACO Erhard

9TH – 17TH SEPTEMBER 2017 at VANCOUVER FRINGE 2017 STAND-UP COMEDY – vancouverfringe.com

Sold out at festivals worldwide since 2011, 5-Step Guide to Being German is award-winning German comedian Paco Erhard’s comical mission to set the record straight about his “charming, crazy mishap of a country”. In 2017, 5-Step Guide to Being German finally comes to Vancouver.

Written as a response to British people’s stereotypes about Germany, 5-Step Guide to Being German delivers “an extremely clever analysis of the modern German psyche” (Independent Daily, AUS) that is “side-splittingly funny and violently politically incorrect” (The Argus, UK). The show was nominated for the Fringe World Best Comedy Award in 2013.

Paco Erhard shows us the Germany behind the scenes, as he self-ironially deals with topics as varied as German bluntness (“we’re not rude, we just value honesty more highly than other people’s feelings”), hilarious Autobahn dilemmas, the truth about lederhosen, and how it feels to grow up with Germany’s horrible past.

Born in Munich as the great-grandson of a high-up German politician (a non-Nazi one, relax!), Paco hitchhiked out of Germany in 2002 to see the world and experience other cultures. “Half my life I ran away from being German” he says. “Then I realized: that’s the most German thing you could possibly do.”

Since then, he has toured the globe as a stand-up comedian, performing in English, German and Spanish. He has written on Germany and Europe for the Irish Times, authored an award-winning academic paper on cultural identity, and appeared on BBC One and many other international TV & radio stations, as a comedian and expert.

If you want to understand Germany and your German friends and family better, see this show.

You will laugh. If you want. Zis is not an order.
