Who is Gerhard Polt?

Gerhard Polt is a Bavarian writer, filmmaker, actor and satirical cabaret artist.

Gerhard Polt's main topics are Bavarian people, culture and politics. On stage he often plays the role of an ignorant Bavarian petty bourgeoisie. One of his trademarks is the constant switching and the combining of Bavarian, Standard German and even Englisch language elements, where a lot of jokes and wordplays derive from.

His performances in Munich theaters, which he started in 1976, are very popular. In 1979 he became known to a wider audience in Germany as a result of his television comedy series "Fast wia im richtigen Leben". In the following years, he was writer and actor in the movies Kehraus, Man spricht deutsh [sic], Germanikus, and writer and director of Herr Ober!.

He's one of the most regarded and highest decorated German cabaret artists.
