WDR opens digital stage for satire, cabaret and comedy


     The WDR is now opening a digital stage for satire, cabaret and comedy on the Internet. Via the website weiterlachen.wdr.de artists from the cabaret and comedy scene, who are currently unable to perform, continue to reach a large audience. Because even serious times need clever satire and funny comedy. And with subtle cabaret humor, some impositions caused by the coronavirus pandemic may be better endured.
    "We are impressed by the great creativity with which artists are tackling the now necessary limitations of our lives. Many funny and ingenious videos are currently being made in the living room at home, in the basement, in studios or in the open air. We are pleased that we at least partly as a replacement for our many unusual events, we have now set up the digital 'stage' and can also distribute articles commissioned by the WDR with the hashtag #continue laughing via our digital channels ", say the two heads of the WDR entertainment program group, Anja Iven and Karin Kuhn .
    Also in the edition "Midnight Spikes EXTRA: Viruses in the West" on Monday, March 30, 2020 at 10:15 p.m., the word "soloist" must be taken literally on WDR television: Jürgen Becker, Wilfried Schmickler, Uwe Lyko alias Herbert Knebel and Susanne Pätzold as Ursula von der Leyen and numerous guests turn to her audience with video messages from her private environment.
    From now on, the offer on weiterlachen.wdr.de put together by the WDR entertainment editorial team will continue to grow and present new, entertaining and entertaining things from various artists. Among other things, Markus Barth, Sarah Bosetti, Frieda Braun, Eckart von Hirschhausen, Jochen Malmsheimer, Tobias Mann, Nikita Miller, Barbara Ruscher, Dagmar Schönleber, Florian Schroeder, Christoph Sieber, Philip Simon, Bernd Stelter, Suchtpotential, Gayle Tufts, Dietmar Wischmeyer, Martin Zingsheim and of course the contributors to the "midnight peaks".
    You can find the videos from #weiterlachen at: weiterlachen.wdr.de, the WDR YouTube Channel and the Facebook channels Mitternachtsspitzen and comedy.wdr.de.
