Yes, what can I possibly say about this long waited for concept...!
On a studio stage there is the interior of a flat (American style, no hall, with the door you burst into the living room, I've never seen such a flat in my life, but okay...) with a small kitchenette. Cordula lives here and she has a lot of friends, all of them comedians like herself. And pretty good ones, the comedy scene in Germany is very strong at the moment, thankfully.
Whatever happens from the beginning to the end is improvised. There seems to be a kind of storyline, where to go roughly, but all dialogue is completely up to the actors. The only thing is - they all have a little man in their ears! Georg Uecker sits next to the director and tells them from time to time what to do. An example: someone sits in the kitchenette on a stool and drinks something while talking to the others. Then Georg tells her "Make love to the stool". And she promptly has to do this! None of the other actors knows that Georg just told her something to do. They just startle a bit when suddenly she starts moaning. Has of course nothing to do with the rest of what's going on and is therefore dead funny. And I have to say, she (Annette Frier in this case) made love gloriously!
The first show (each is 30 minutes) was okay, but there was potential. And ever since the shows are getting funnier and funnier. I hope this great new thing will be shown for a long time. I will watch every Friday, a quarter past ten, that's for sure! Cordula, Georg and the others, go for it!
9 out of 10!
