English Comedy Showcase

Let's start 2022 off right with a night of great comedy and friendly vibes!

Our fantastic comics for January's show are

  • Fay Walsh (UK)
  • Justin Small (USA)

and amazing headliner

  • Shawn Jay (also from the UK)

… all presented by your host Ben MacLean, who's celebrating 12 years of terrifying Berliners with his rural Canadian friendliness.

This is a 2G event. Please bring your digital vaccination certificate or proof of recovery within the last six months, plus a negative test result that's no more than 24 hours old.

We don't wanna brag, but we're one of Berlin's longest-running comedy nights, and we've got a bit of a reputation (but in a good way)! We bring you the city's best English comics in a one-of-a-kind format that's both edgy and super friendly. We start with a lovely venue that is one of the oldest LGBTQIA+ community organizations in Germany and add a lineup of hilarious people of all descriptions so we can laugh together and celebrate the diversity of Berlin at its best!
Suggested donation per person: EUR 10.

AHA will also broadcast the event live on their YouTube channel. (Please note that only those attending in person are eligible for prizes during our half-time quiz.)

We can't wait to see you at the fabulous AHA for a night of incredible comedy!


Rules for visiting our show during the pandemic

We are happy to be able to offer shows at full seating capacity. 2G-plus-rules apply as mandated by the Berlin Senate. You need a valid digital certificate of vaccination or recovery to attend. Certificates can be obtained from most pharmacies with proof of vaccination or a positive PCR test result that is more than 28 days old. Additionally you need either proof of a current negative POC/PCR or of having received a booster vaccination.
We welcome your visit and your support for us as a queer venue.

Please be sure to observe the rules for hygiene and distancing when visiting our shows:


Always try to keep a minimum distance of at least 1.5 m/5 ft to others when waiting in line for admission. Masks are mandatory when waiting in line outddors.


Controlled admission, seating is limited, entrance only via our terrace at the rear.


To attend any indoor events and shows, you need a digital certificate of vaccination or proof of recovery together with a picture ID (2G-Rule).


In addition you need proof of a current negative test result or of a booster vaccination.
The test can be either a POC-antigen-test (rapid test, less than 24h old) or a PCR-test (less than 48h old) from an officially licensed test center. You do not need a test if you have proof of a booster vaccination.

Because we are also a bar, a medical mask must be worn when you are not sitting in your seat.


It is still recommended that you wash or desinfect your hands after entering the AHA.


Corona vaccines protect you from severe sickness. However they only reduce the risk of infection or infecting others. For this reason we ask you to stay at home if you suffer from acute symptoms of flu or cold, loss of smell or taste or have a fever.


For your safety, our venue runs a mechanical ventilation system. Professional grade air cleaners are also in use.


We recommend that you continue to use our Check-In with the Corona-Warn-App for your personal contact tracing and risk assesment.


Further information about 2G+ and the current Corona-madates can be found in the Corona-FAQ of the Berline Senat.


Payment without cash is available and preferred. Most debit and credit cards are accepted.


Some of our shows are also broadcast online via live stream. Links will be available in the event description.
