Cool Show
9 July 2005 | by nico_prdSee all my reviews

This show started a real comedy boom in Germany. When it was shown first in 1993, nobody knew this kind of TV show here. Sure there were some similar shows before like "Total Normal". But so much various characters like in this show there weren't before. For example some sketches playing with words: "Der Sport" (translated: Sports) or "Kentucky schreit ficken" (translated: Kentucky screams CENSORED). "Zwei Stühle, eine Meinung" (translated: Two chairs, one opinion) or "Schreinemakers Ihre Schwester-TV" were funny talk shows. All of the actors in this show became popular in Germany later. And tough RTL Samstag Nacht stopped its production in 1997 its broadcoasted today on some TV programmes.
