German Stand-Up Comedians Not Only Exist, They're Telling Jokes About Germans
"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. ... Lederhosen-wearing Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy is among a growing group of German comedians who get laughs mocking Germany."
