Fish Bowl: Episode 37

Fortnightly the Fish Bowl brings you the some of the best English language comedy in Berlin from the cosy confines of Naherholung Sternchen.  Last week’s episode hosted by Neil Numb featured comedians MF David Deery (USA), Perry Filippeos (SCO/GRE), Daniel Stern (USA), Amelia Jane Hunter (AUS/UK), Nate Blanchard (USA), Neil Numb (SCO).  An account of my first visit to the Fish Bowl for Episode 7, can be found here

Since that initial visit there have been a few changes, the layout of the interior has changed and there’s no more live music.  The focus of the evening is pure comedy and Caroline Clifford assembles the best and brightest from Berlin’s English language comedy scene.  The rotating line-up of comedians comes from all over the world.

Last week’s lineup featured Nate Blanchard, who regaled the audience with stories of racoon transvestites bringing home shaopping bags full of Mc Donald’s to feed orphaned racoon children.  Lovin’ it!

Just because the comedy has ended, doesn’t mean that you have to go home.  Stick around for another drink and mix it up with the comedians.  After the show B.B.
