Storyline

The series "Switch" was produced in the years 1996-1999 by "Visuelle" in Köln Ossendorf and broadcasted in the years 1997-2000. The cast spoofs the German TV series and a lot of international music artists (The Bloodhound Gang, Robbie Williams, Tom Jones, etc.). There was also an invention of the writers. At "Fakten Fakten Fakten" the whole cast sat on a round and made pointless games. Hoëcker didn't understand the games or he told something about Lemgo. So someone said: "Hoëcker, Sie sind raus!!" (Hoëcker, you're out!). Written by Stefanie Schmid

Funniest parodies in German TV!
28 June 2003 | by adamchSee all my reviews

"Switch" is, just like "Monty Python's Flyin' Circus" a show that shows one sketch after the other. Every sketch parodes another TV show or movie! To take a few: "Wetten dass...?", "Flipper", "Silence of the Lambs", "Forrest Gump", "Bravo TV", "Liebe Sünde", etc...

Between the sketches we get to see "Fakten, Fakten, Fakten", another show the comedians do together, which is also very funny!

7 out of 10.
