Mario Barth Tickets
Mario Barth, Germany's stand-up comedy giant
Mario Barth is a somewhat controversial, though insanely popular, German stand-up comedian. His shows have sold out some of the biggest stadiums in Europe, as his particular brand of provocative comedy poking fun at male and female stereotypes in relationships has struck a deep chord with the average person in the street. You can expect slightly confrontational and quite earthy stand-up when you buy or sell Mario Barth tickets on StubHub.
The unlikely holder of a comedy world record
Mario Barth holds the official Guinness World Record for the largest audience at a live comedy show, a feat he accomplished at the Olympiastadion Berlin when he toppled the previous record-holder, the not insignificant figure of Chris Rock. It's one of the instances of the fascinating showbiz phenomenon where an artist who is really only known in his own country has built up such a massive domestic following that he or she eclipses international superstars through sheer weight of audience numbers. As if that wasn't enough for him, Mario Barth broke his own record again a few years later, increasing it from an already impressive 70,000 audience members to a staggering 116,000. This should give you some indication of the level of comedic prowess you can expect with Mario Barth tickets, so why not investigate one of the most successful stars Germany has produced in any art form, an unlikely pretender to the throne if ever there was one.
From telecoms engineer to comedy superstar
Mario Barth has very much cleared a particular niche for himself in the stand-up comedy landscape, with a line of patter that has since travelled a long way from the live stage. In 2004, he published what seemed at the outset to be an insignificant tongue-in-cheek, if vaguely sexist, "dictionary" on "how to understand women". The print run sold out within a week and has become a worldwide best-seller from The Netherlands to South Korea. Not bad for an erstwhile telecoms engineer at Siemens. Mario Barth has often been compared to the more traditional male comedy styles of other German stand-ups like Dieter Nuhr and Stefan Raab, although he's by far the most, shall we say, robust comedian of his peers. And now it's over to you – this German comedy superstar isn't everyone's cup of tea, but those who enjoy his brand of entertainment adore him.
