“keine ahnung?” – the brand-new comedy quiz show from, and with, Mario Barth

“keine ahnung?” is the first hidden-camera comedy quiz show. Mario Barth, the comedy shooting star and winner of the 2003 Comedy Cup, goes in search of potential candidates in the most unsuspecting of places – at the filling station, at the hair salon or in a department store. From November 24, he will slip into the most varied roles every Monday at 8:15 p.m. on ProSieben and will get innocent people who are passing by to chat to him.

During a harmless chat, the “victims” answer – completely oblivious to what is actually going on – five quiz questions, whereby they have no idea that they will receive € 50 for each correct answer and are also being caught on hidden camera. For example, Mario Barth turns innocent car sales assistants into his quiz show contestants during a test drive or – when pretending to be a hotel manager at the reception desk – tests the guests’ general knowledge.

In his new comedy quiz show, Mario Barth is supported by celebrity guests and his studio audience. In stand-up sketches, the host presents the funniest answers and the wackiest reactions and responses of the quiz “participants”.

“keine ahnung?” with Mario Barth will be aired from November 24, 2003, every Monday at 8:15 p.m. on ProSieben. The English original “Oblivious” won Silver at the Rose d’Or at Montreux in 2002 in the “Game Show” category.
