Fankfurt's oldest nightclub in the Bahnhofsviertel will launch on 23.12.2023 with "DER DOMPTEUR LÄDT EIN", a new comedy format for special entertainment. True to the motto "Kultur, Comedy & Show im Bahnhofsviertel", comedy mixed shows will take place there regularly during the cold months. In collaboration with event organizer S-Promotion EVENT GmbH, which hosts 450 events a year, the format will be staged ten times a year at the legendary location from 2024.
The concept of the series is extremely promising. Three comedians make up the line-up for each Comedy Mixed Show: an established comedian, a local artist and a newcomer. The tamer, the face of PIK DAME, hosts and presents the format according to all the rules of the art of entertainment in the cult location. Up to 100 people can be seated in the traditional nightclub. In addition to the comedy mixed shows, some artists will also perform their solos here. This platform is not just for newcomers or fans of the Frankfurt comedy scene. Established greats such as Nizar, Tamika Campbell and old hands on the comedy scene will also be testing their programs and playing previews in the unique ambience of the former strip club. Whether Youtubers, podcasters, comedians or cabaret artists, the facets of artists are as diverse as the cult location of the Bahnhofsviertel itself.
Max Coga, the third-generation owner, has established PIK DAME as the in-club of the Bahnhofsviertel in Frankfurt's hotspot district over the years. This year, the realization of the unusual game format came about rather by chance through a mutual acquaintance. With S-Promotion and PIK DAME, two great experts in the entertainment industry have merged into one:
"The PIK DAME has been shining since 1959 with a variety of crazy artists, shows and events. My grandfather once said that a stage should be a platform for all kinds of nonsense, and I share that sentiment. I've been around nightlife for as long as I can remember, and nothing has excited me as much as comedy and cabaret. It is a great honor to work with S-Promotion Event GmbH and I am sure that not only the shows will be unique in Frankfurt, but also that the past will be revived in a new way. I'm going to be my best customer and I'm looking forward to laughing my head off.", summarizes Max Coga.
The organizer, Katharina Eifert, is equally looking forward to the collaboration: "We have been organizing & Management in the entertainment industry for 30 years and are always on the lookout for new talent. A club in the heart of Frankfurt, which also has the vibe of a New York comedy cellar, will attract many well-known as well as newcomer artists. In combination with the owner of PIK DAME, Max Coga, and our host, the Dompteur, we are an unbeatable team and will establish ourselves as an iconic, varied stage in the middle of Frankfurt."
Depending on the show, ticket prices for the series range from €28 to €40. The program and further information can be found at: www.pikdamefrankfurt.com.
