Sketch News

“SketchNews” was a weekly comedy sketch show on Sat.1, in which seven first-class comedians and actors around Axel Stein focussed on current topics relating to politics, gossip, sport and society. Racy, sometimes grotesque but never politically correct, “SketchNews” presented the talk of the town in classical sketches, distorted original images and parodies. In addition to the grand stage of world politics, “SketchNews” also looked at normal, everyday lives, such as those being lived in the nation’s living rooms, offices and supermarkets. In countless sketches, Axel Stein, Tanya Neufeldt, Daniel Drewes, Stéphanie Berger, Arnd Cremer, Yunus Cumartpay and Andree Solvik proved their tremendous versatility.

They exceled not only in whacky parodies, but also showed their mettle in razor-sharp enactments of everyday situations.
“SketchNews” – the weekly comedy show – from January 5, every Saturday at 11:15 p.m. on Sat.1.
