"Germany has had a kick-me sign on its back for comedians at least since Kaiser Wilhelm donned a spiked helmet more than a century ago." (Think Charlie Chaplin, Mel Brooks's The Producers, Hogan's Heroes, Mike Myers's Sprockets.) But all those acts were outsiders laughing at Germans. Germans are getting in the act now. ...
