German Humor in Dublin City


On the 16th of May 2016, the German-Irish Chamber presented the award-winning German cabaret artist Urban Priol for an exclusive comedy event, jointly with the German Embassy and supported by BMW Group. More than 100 attendees came to network and enjoy the evening in Dublin.

Dublin’s Sugar Club was the venue for a thoroughly enjoyable comedy evening on which the audience were treated to a hilarious performance from the famous German cabaret artist and comedian Urban Priol. The comedian is in particular famous for his satirical end-of-the-year-reviews.

In his performance „Jetzt- schon wieder aktueller” he talked about breaking news, online and offline, and the craziness of news live tickers: How can one keep up with always being up-to-date? And what should people do in order to collect all of recent news? - Tablets, Smartphones and many more innovations of the online era were part of his answers. It’s a fact that the world’s pace becomes faster and faster. Urban Priol spoke about timely political events, an ever changing world and transformed real news into comedy punch lines during the event. 

Since 2002 Urban Priol is going on tour all over Germany. From 2007 to 2013 he was host of the political cabaret “Neues aus der Anstalt,” an award winning Television show on the ZDF channel.
