Storyline

Karl Tellenbach, called "Dällebach Kari", was one of Bern's legendary characters at the beginning of the 20th century. Born with a strong hare lip which left him disfigured and gave his voice a peculiar nasal tone, he devoted his entire life trying to get people to laugh with him instead of at him. Ultimately, his despairing at ever becoming accepted as a fellow man coupled with unrequited love made his life tragic, culminating in his suicide at age 54. His jokes are still well known today.
