One of the hardest things for me when I moved to Berlin was the lack of feeling at home, not that the city felt hostile, quite the opposite, I just mean that if i wanted to see a movie then there was limited places I could go to watch one in English, the things we take for granted in our home countries suddenly seem like a distant memory.
I was very kindly invited to watch an English cabaret show, instantly my heart pounced through my mouth and agreed. I am a sucker for shows, cabaret and all things razzle dazzle-esque.
I arrive and the curtain opens so to speak, and from that moment until the moment the show finished I was fully entertained (mainly by the evenings host Jack Woodhead who has a whimsical and hysterical way of turning any sentence into a hilarious punch line, a talent I wish I possessed) The evening consisted of a bi-lingual course of cabaret from burlesque stripping to cabaret songs performed on piano, each and every moment of the show was unique and entertaning.I had never been to the venue before, or even heard of it I am ashamed to say, but after the show finished I had a look at what else the venue offers and you will be glad to know that there is a whole plethore of comedy shows in English for us hungry Brits and North Americans.
