Shahak Shapira – CROWDSOURCED – improvised Comedy | ENGLISH // 20-23 Uhr

Usually, stand up comedy is carefully crafted bits, tested and re-written to perfection over months, sometimes even years, but what if you just wing it? I’m Shahak Shapira, a stand up comedian, and for a whole hour, I’ll stand on stage with no written material whatsoever and try to create comedy on the spot simply by interacting with my audience. What could go wrong? Literally everything.


During the show, I’ll pull questions you’ve written down before the show out of a hat and solve your problems, because I’m really confident about giving advice about literally anything. This show’s topic is ✨ TBA ✨



⏰ TIMES : Doors 8.00 PM | Showtime: 8.30 PM

📍 VENUE : Climax Institutes! An Institution in Stuttgart’s night life since 1996 – I wasn’t even born back then! (that’s not true)

🥳 AFTERPARTY : Your ticket will also give you access to the club for the rest of the night. The whole night! What a deal!

🎫 TICKETS : Unbelievable 15€. It’s like you’re losing money if you’re NOT getting them!

Shahak Shapira – CROWDSOURCED – improvised Comedy | ENGLISH

Hey, I’m Shahak Shapira, an Israeli comedian in Germany, which is, already, just wrong on so many levels. My comedy show on German TV got canceled so fast, most people didn’t even know I had one. I recorded a stand up special for Comedy Central, which would have been awesome, but it was Comedy Central Germany , so yeah, not great. My TED-Talk about how to go viral has about 30,000 views which is as sad as it is ironic. And as if that’s not tragic enough – I’m a DJ too.
All of this is terrible for my general well being, but it’s terrific for my comedy.
Also here is a list of cool things I did:
– Toured Germany twice, recorded and produced my own special and then another special for Comedy Central.
– I was head writer and host of my own sketch comedy show on German TV and introduced the first celebrity roast ever on German TV.
– Performed in Germany, Austria, Japan, Spain, USA and South Africa and played at iconic comedy clubs such as The Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, Gotham, New York Comedy Club, Stand Up NY and West Side Comedy Club.
– Wrote two best selling books and sold over 80k copies.
– Opened for Maz Jobrani and Joe List.
– My English stand up videos on TikTok and Instagram have been watched by over 5 million people.
– As an artist, my work has reached over 250 million people worldwide and has been covered by numerous media outlets such as The New York Times, CNN, BBC, The Guardian, Buzzfeed, AJ+, etc.
