Go West Comedy

English Comedy Showcase

Go West ist der englischsprachige Standup-Comedy-Showcase in der AHA! Eure Moderator-Innen Ben MacLean (Kanada) und Simone Hudson (Neuseeland) präsentieren einen lustigen Abend mit den besten KomikerInnen der englischsprachigen Szene in Berlin! Spendenbasiert.

Schöneberg's number-one (and longest-running) English comedy night takes the stage once a month at the fabulous AHA. Your hosts Ben MacLean (Canada) and Simone Hudson (New Zealand) bring you a night of laughs starring the best comedians from Berlin's English comedy scene. And did we mention it's free?! (Though donations are welcome.)

We’re back to celebrate our 2-year anniversary at the best frickin’ venue in town!

We're Berlin’s #1 queer-positive (and hetero-friendly) English comedy showcase. This month, your host is comedian/lip sync queen Simone Hudson … she’s 50% Swiss, 50% Kiwi and 100% fabulous!

We’ll also have our legendary halftime surprise quiz. It’s legendary because of how nice the prizes are (drinks and more) not to mention you could practically win it in your sleep.

Just a five-minute walk from Yorckstraße, Kleistpark and Julius-Leber-Brücke stations at the charming AHA, where the drinks are cheap and the vibe is always super welcoming.

FREE ENTRY (donations encouraged)

This month our hand-picked comics who'll be bringing the funny are …

  • Grace Jung is a stand-up comedian from LA. She worked on the TV series Comedy Bang! Bang! and performs in cities in the US, Europe and Asia. Find her on Instagram and Twitter @aechjay.
  • Ben Peacock is a Berlin-based American comedian and actor who's still waiting for his commercial agent to call. Catch him around town using comedy audiences to work out his father issues. Ben is the host of Prism, a monthly queer performance night in Prenzlauer Berg.
  • Liliana Velásquez has crossed borders all her life. Raised in Miami, Medellin and New Jersey, there is no role she cannot play and her comedy reflects this extravagant mix in her Latina-tude, Catholic guilt and American dreaming. As an adult, Liliana recklessly explored NYC, slipping in and out of different art forms, costumes, and jobs. She has so many outrageous stories to tell, it would horrify her proud parent. Only now do they admire her comedic outlook on so many mistakes. Always hungry for new challenges, Liliana soon found other platforms for the performance that is her life: Berlin-Neukölln. She is proud to be queer and not perfect and enjoys waking up in the afternoons. As if that isn't enough, she is also leading lady at Freudian Slip Club, producing hundreds of shows in Germany every year.

Einlass: 20 Uhr • Beginn: 21 Uhr • Eintritt frei (Spendenbasiert)
