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.)
You've survived the holidays, now it's time to kick off 2020 with a night of incredible comedy at the friendliest venue in Berlin!
You'll have a chance to win fun prizes at Berlin's craziest halftime quiz. It's crazy because it's so easy you could practically do it in your sleep!
This month our hand-picked comics who'll be bringing the funny are:
- Scott Reynolds was born and raised in Toronto, and moved to Germany in 2013 to pursue graduate studies in classical music. He began performing comedy in the summer of 2018, and quickly began winning over audiences by drawing on his unique perspective as a white, straight male with a middle-class suburban upbringing.
- Courtney June O'Connell won the best storytelling award in 1990 in Ms. Piazza’s nursery school on Long Island, New York, where she was born and raised. She went on to be voted »best sense of humor« in 8th grade and »class clown« in 12th grade. Over ten years later, she took to the stage and currently produces Laugh Riot!, a monthly show in Neukölln featuring stand-up, improvised stand-up, and interviews with audience members as well as comedians.
- Lena Stolby is a Russian comedian who is good at talking and bad at life. She started sharing the stories of her failures years ago back in Moscow, but once her mum showed up to one of her performances, she was forced to escape to Europe and switch to English. Since then the external politics of Russia have changed drastically … A coincidence? Totally. She was also born on 9/11. She is allergic to cats and will tell you about the approaching end of the world and her relationship with it.
