Finally, it's that time again! Our English Comedy Showcase is back! Our host Tim Whelan has brought wonderful guests to Chemnitz who will make this evening indescribable. But read for yourself

Abi is a Berlin based comedian. Born in India, she didn't go far from the stereotype of becoming a software engineer. While that fills her pockets, comedy fills the void in her heart. Currently converting childhood trauma into jokes one show at a time, Abi has been performing all over Europe, usually in places where Ryanair goes.

Born and raised in Lebanon, she wins over the crowds with her high energy presence, rapid-fire anecdotes and love for sarcasm. Carmen has been performing comedy for almost 10 years. She has produced many successful shows in Berlin, has toured in several European countries and opened for international comedians such as: Todd Barry, Judah Friedlander, Andy Haynes … She is now part of a female comedy collective called Queen Bees Comedy. You can follow her high pitched voice to see where she's performing next or just follow her on instagram @carmenita01

Originally from Liverpool, England, Tim moved to Berlin in 2010 and by complete accident co-founded the English comedy scene, a move which has made other people an awful lot of money! Keen observations, kindly German-jostling, bad puns and nerdish monologues rub shoulders in his comedy. Tim has hosted hundreds of shows in Berlin and beyond, from Lebanon, to Helsinki and the Edinburgh festival. He has been our charming host in Chemnitz since 2014.
