Balls to the Wall comedy showcase shakes foundations of new comedy club
Balls to the Wall is a new monthly comedy showcase featuring established international comedians performing English language sets. Starring comics are diverse and intelligent, but at the same time ridiculous and irreverent.
February’s performers come all the way from Austria to Australia, with a splash of Colombia, UK, Serbia, Japan and Pakistan thrown in between. They have been seen on Austrian, Serbian and German national television, Comedy Central, Quatsch Comedy Club & New York’s Comedy elite.
“Balls to the Wall showcases heavy hitters in comedy, hand picked by our all female team,” says the show’s latex-clad, tattooed host and co-producer, Liliana Velasquez. “All our performers have a special fierceness about them, and they have toured extensively across the world from Asia, to Africa, Australia and the Americas.”
Balls to the Wall was the opening show of Berlin’s brand new comedy club, The Wall, located on Boxhagenerplatz in Friedrichshain. Off the back of a completely sold out show, presale tickets are highly recommended.
