Die Wochenshow

"Die Wochenshow" – Germany’s most successful comedy show with the wittiest highlights of the past week. The "Die Wochenshow" presents hot-off-the-press news, wacky sketches, brutal revelations and disclosures, hilarious interviews and simply weird and wonderful everyday situations. And racily, cheekily and wittily presented by the comedy ensemble par excellence.

"Die Wochenshow" reviews all the events from politics, sports and society and parody – to perfection – its protagonists. The comedians put their tremendous versatility to the test with superlative persiflages and with the poignant portrayal of "everyday" people, who – in the "Wochenshow" – quickly develop into cult figures.

And we are not just talking about the world of international politics, but also about places closer to everyone’s heart, such as the office, the women’s toilets and the local kindergarten. The witty, over-the-top representations of well-known television formats are further highlights of each and every "Wochenshow": talk shows and advice programs are parodied as are music and shopping channels.

"Die Wochenshow" was broadcast from 1996 until 2002 on Saturdays at 10:15 p.m. on SAT.1.

Cast: Anke Engelke, Bastian Pastewka, Marco Rima, Ingolf Lück, Markus Maria Profitlich, Annette Frier, Michael Kessler, Bürger Lars Dietrich
