Celebrated TV comedians and a renowned newspaper columnist are at the ready to entertain the crowds at a Viennese theatre.
Oliver Baier, Rudi Roubinek and Guido Tartarotti are all set to perform their new programmes at the Stadttheater Walfischgasse – which is located in the city centre of the Austrian capital – in the coming weeks.
Baier has created some of the most acclaimed TV comedy shows and radio entertainment programmes of the past 20 years. The "Was gibt es Neues?" host also succeeded as an actor and director.
The stage programme "Schlager Schlachtung" – in which Baier investigates the often bizarre lyrics of well-known German Schlager songs – has drawn the masses at theatres across Austria but also in Switzerland and Germany. Now he is lined up for a string of performances at the Stadttheater Walfischgasse.
Roubinek rose to fame by appearing on late night TV sensation "Wir sind Kaiser" in which celebrities were received in audiences by Robert Palfrader in his role as Emperor Robert Heinrich I. Roubinek and Palfrader decided to put the immensely successful television series on hold before people have enough of it.
While Palfrader focused on acting, Roubinek wrote a stage programme called "Wir bleiben Kaiser". Audiences can brace for being taken on a wild ride through the now defunct Austrian-Hungarian Empire – including various amusing insights.
Tartarotti’s new programme is called "Heini Hemmi". The Kurier journalist says it deals with the decisive questions of life such as how to achieve luck and personal joy – and what happens if a credit rating agency downgrades hard rock legends AC/DC.
Matthias Kempf directs "Heini Hemmi". Tartarotti joined the Kurier in 1990. He focuses on media developments, theatre news and CD reviews but also writes about his personal experiences in "ÜberLeben", a column published by the newspaper’s weekly Freizeit supplement.
