Paco Erhard – Djerman Unchained (Free Festival)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Paco Erhard, the well-travelled, politically incorrect German comedian is on top form. Sagacious and full of conviction, he expresses his disapproval of all the intolerance in society, from homophobia to the nationalistic hatred of other countries. Clearly fed up with the world and all its politics, he’s a combination of Jim Jeffries and Bill Hicks; intelligent, nihilistic and at times merciless. Dressed in a leather jacket and cowboy boots, he has a profound stage presence commanding everyone’s attention from the outset. His style of comedy is characterised by sardonic, and at times sarcastic short rants about why people are, essentially, stupid. Erhard will leave you laughing, and agreeing with almost everything he says. Observational comedy and satire at its finest.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 25 Aug, 7.45pm.
