Ernst Grissemann and Gottfried Schwarz, two of Austria’s most brilliant broadcasters, are taking to the stage in a brand new show in German, Prost Mahlzeit! (Cheers, Bon Appétit!) which will première at the Akzent Theatre in Vienna on April, 20.
In their long careers, Grissemann and Schwarz have substantially contributed to Austrian entertainment in public broadcasting – the former on the radio station Ö3, the other as Head of Entertainment for television.
The pair has "cooked up" countless entertainment shows – so much so that one could refer to them as the eldest "TV-chefs" in the world.
Today, they have come up with a brand new recipe in a delicious cookery show which will feature texts on the theme "food and drink" by Austrian, German and British comedians such as Helmut Qualtinger, Horst Evers, Heino Jaeger, Roda Roda, Roald Dahl, Friedrich Torberg, Joachim Ringelnatz, Otto Grünmandl, Andreas Vitásek, Robert Weys, Vicco von Bülow (Loriot), Hugo Wiener, Martin Flossmann, Christian Morgenstern and many more.
The 20 short stories, anecdotes and dialogues will take you from the starter right through to the world famous Viennese coffee specialities via a main dish of comical delicatessen sure to live up to the two actor’s standards.
Prost Mahlzeit! opens on April, 20 at the Theater Akzent in Vienna (Theresianumgasse, 18).
Other dates will be announced for the autumn. For more information and tickets, go to http://www.akzent.at/
