Kabarett Theater Distel

“Best modern ensemble cabaret!” Berliner Morgenpost

The spiky DISTEL entertains with great humor and lots of live music.

Pacing, mocking, dissecting and tearing is always up to date – always on the cutting edge! Be it a snappy parody, a fun sketch or satirically twisted cover songs – the cleverly witted programs ensure fabulous pleasure. Lovers of cabaret and friends of black humor will get their money’s worth here as well as fans of political comedy.

DISTEL is the largest ensemble cabaret in Germany and enjoys a very high level of awareness. Her story alone is legendary. Opened in 1953 by decision of the East Berlin magistrate, it was to use satire as a “weapon in the class struggle” against the West. But because of the mostly inward, cunningly veiled GDR taunts, DISTEL soon became a thorn in the side of the government. Only the great popularity with the audience and the skill of their directors, authors and performers could save them from being threatened several times.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, DISTEL established itself as an all-German cabaret. The proximity to the Reichstag and the Chancellery sees DISTEL as an incentive to be the sharp “sting at the seat of government”. For 25 years now, the cabaret has been the top address for political satire.
