“Hilarious Hans… both ridiculous and brilliant at the same time.” – Vogue Australia
Boozier than Oktoberfest, more drive than a Volkswagen, and more sausage than a bratwurst convention, Hans is Germany’s proudest export. An international superstar, sex symbol, accordionist and Berlin boy-wonder, Hans has been thrilling audiences around the globe with his own fabulous brand of award- winning comedy cabaret for over a decade, performing for everyone from Prime Ministers to Princesses, paupers to paper boys.

In 2018 Hans won the hearts of 16 million Americans with his cheeky and electrifying song and dance routines on NBC’s juggernaut TV series, America’s Got Talent. As Hans put it, “Darlings, I went there to make America glitter again. It was calling me and I answered!” 2020 arrived and Hans put his foot down on the gas of his luxury German four wheel drive as he accepted his invitation to return to the USA and appear on America’s Got Talent: The Champions (NBC). Competing against the very best contestants from the US, Europe and the Antipodes, Hans made it through to the Grand Final and was declared one of the ten best entertainers in the world (no, really, look it up).

Hans’ original production of Hans: Like a German debuted to sell out crowds at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2019, winning the Best Cabaret award and followed by a nationwide tour. Now with an über spring in his step, his brand new show, Haus of Hans: Disco Spektakulär, premiered at Adelaide Fringe Festival 2020. It was his most ambitious production ever and became the highest selling comedy cabaret show at the festival, and the highest grossing South Australian production too. To top it all o, Hans took home the coveted Best Cabaret award for the second year in a row.
Not one to push down his fishnets, Hans also released his first single in 2020. Oxygen is a disco/dance anthem co-written by Hans and legendary producer and musical director Chong Lim (of John Farnham and Olivia Newton John fame).
On television you may have seen Hans’ electrifying medley of Eurovision songs on Eurovision: Australia Decides Live (SBS) and appearances on The Good Friday Appeal (Seven), Sunrise (Seven), The Today Show (Nine), Studio 10 (Ten), The Morning Show (Seven), Carols in The Domain (Seven), SA Weekender (Seven)… you get it, he goes where the money is.
