"I tell, you laugh". Sounds simple, but it's not. Unless your name is Maxi Gstettenbauer, you were born in Lower Bavaria as a convinced digital native, you live in Cologne, and you profess to be "rather Maxi than normal. Then you've got the best prerequisites for churning out stories that will have viewers laughing their heads off for two hours.
Maxi Gstettenbauer mostly tells stories about herself. And is unsparing in doing so. Others, for example, would sell their first appearance on Stefan Raab as a huge success, but Maxi exposes the disaster that took place on stage and inside himself. In doing so, he proves to be a shrewd observer who draws the potential for his stories from the smallest of hair. All alone on stage, he captures his audience with a distinctive voice that remains friendly even as he dissects vulgarities. Because the cellar-tanned comedy nerd doesn't learn his program by heart, this gives him room for improvisational interludes. An interjection from a member of the audience often leads to an unplanned excursion into the absurd, which makes you wonder: How does he come up with such grandiose nonsense? These are moments when Maxi laughs and says: "I'm working right now and I'm getting paid for it! He deserves it because he doesn't try to explain the world, but simply lets his hair down for two hours and entertains in the best possible way. His school is life. No classical training, no studies, not even a high school diploma! What would be a disaster for any other profession is just right for comedy! From school directly to Cologne into the comedy world! In between he worked as a tester for computer games. He knows them all and was on every level. When he talks about his passion for game consoles, there's not a dry eye in the house. The connoisseurs can't help but laugh at themselves and the digital immigrants shake their heads when Maxi Gstettenbauer gives fodder to the clichés about computer - nerds. Maxi likes to look behind the scenes and question, for example, how we use the Internet. There's obviously a need for enlightenment, otherwise the social media wouldn't be so successful selling products that no one needs. The smart Bavarian, who lives in Cologne, likes to describe himself as follows: "I'm a comedian who sees the world with alert eyes, but gets lost in the details. " Much to the delight of his ever-growing fan base.
