Here's the proof: a double dose of laughter and horror. More than the usual stereotypical recording of a cabaret program. Rather an explosive mix of live atmosphere, sophisticated blue box studio technology and outdoor recordings. With the anger and vigor of a young savage, the old master exemplifies what satire can do. Timelessly topical, because names at Kittner in the "Rondo konfuso" proves that a longer working life creates new jobs or practiced smugly, there is no dry eye.
The Mainzer Allgemeine Zeitung recently lamented that "political provocateurs like Dietrich Kittner are no longer born today." - what for? The master still acts with sharp vision and bite. What this DVD proves. Satirical balance sheet of an era, that of the dull two-thirds government coalition. Kittner, whose favorite characters are still called Eulenspiegel and Schweijk, guarantees that such a situation does not have to lead to frustration and dead seriousness. Buckets of scorn and ridicule. Here it is. Popular wit can overthrow dictatorships, ridiculousness can crack coalitions. And when Kittner sings, it gets under your skin; when he (actually) mounts the war phrase mower, things get really spooky. This DVD is not a well-balanced program recording for the entertainment range of our television stations, which is open to the bottom. More: a collage specially assembled for the medium. Studio productions, live performances, resorts to what is now frighteningly topical again, unfortunately and field recordings combine to form a consistently logical chain of evidence. Get the (bogus) saints and concrete heads (West) off their pedestals! Everything that TV doesn't dare to show. Political cabaret - does that still exist? But hello - the walte Kittner!
Dietrich Kittner lets satire become reality and reality becomes satire. Here the example of the reintroduction of torture. It was largely abolished in the 18th century, but experienced a renaissance between 1933 and 1945. And today ...? With biting black humor and amazing logic, Kittner outlineshow the "embarrassing questioning" could actually become law again. Not only in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, but also in the land of poets and thinkers. A bitter satire, diaphragm and goosebumps in one. Bonus material: report, judgments How a film is made Catalog raisonné trailer "Rundschlag"
An audio book of a special kind. To save time, Dietrich Kittner prefers to write official and official letters in such a way that he can easily recite them as satires in cabaret. What he proves with this double CD. It mainly contains a recording of Kittner's special program "Dear Dirty Pig!" at FAUST Hanover, where a flowery collection of his correspondence with ministers and chancellors, public prosecutors, association bureaucrats and federal presidents draws the audience to laughter. It is always most beautiful when a big-headed overtone drinks the cocoa through which it is drawn by answering. On this CD, satirist Kittner enviously admits that the phrase "Dear bastard!" was not his own. True stories are the worst. The more unbelievable, the truer! To be on the safe side, the artist sings his summary at the end. Laughs, songs and above all: blasphemous letters.

"Dietrich Kittner gains a lot of cutting power from the otherwise toothless cabaret." (Stuttgart Newspaper)
“An alert head sweeps through the political lowlands like an intellectual whirlwind. In times of rampant infantile comedy giggles, Kittner holds up the banner of political cabaret – a fantastic logician, even in terms of language.” (Nuremberg News)

Klaus Kauroff, the Garbsen steam hammer, the stateless man, the "egghead" ... During his time as a catcher there were many names for the Garbsener, who was notorious for being merciless. Kauroff won many tournaments and prizes, was both a fighter at the world's largest catch tournament in Hanover and at the legendary battles at Vienna's Heumarkt. This is how Udo Lindenberg became aware of him and together with Otto Wanz they caught the “Dröhnland-Symphonie” live tour. Kauroff plays one of the leading roles in Lindenberg's feature film "Panic Times" and was also present as Lindenberg's bodyguard in 2003 at the celebrations for the fall of the Berlin Wall, among others with the then Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. Now the 71-year-old has written down his life memories and recorded it as an audio book "Klaus Kauroff - Always 101%". The CD is enriched by three music titles, sung by the Garbsener Damphammer, with direct reference to Kauroff's life.
