In my opinion: The peak of his career.
15 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was like 11 years old when I first saw the show on TV. My parents recorded it on VHS and after a short while I knew the show by heart. I have seen a lot of shows and movies from Otto, but no other show is that strongly present in my mind as "Hilfe Otto kommt!". I think the main reason for that is his great performance at the "Hensel and Gretel"-Scetch where he performed the old Ferrytale "Hensel und Gretel" with actual state of the art music. This part was so successful that it turned into a running gag and ever since then Otto has kept producing new clips of "Hensel und Gretel" with newer music (up to date: 34 versions known). Otto made a wonderful show but skipped once badly when he ordered some birthday-cake for the foundation "Kuchen für Otti (Cake for Otti)" and said that it should NOT be confused with "Brot für die Welt" (worldwide humanitary organization). Even with this really bad (perhaps mistaken) joke I will give Otto Waalkes 10 stars for this show because it is one of the most remarkable Stand-up comedy-shows ever shown on German TV.
