Markus Langer 'Spassvogel(n)'
"Markus Langer is the pole from Moosach - and on the way to great success." This is how the Münchner Merkur puts it in a nutshell. In his current programme "Funbird(s)!" the actor and cabaret artist parodies attentively observed and finely modelled types who he observes in everyday life and brings on stage with great acting talent. His artificial figures have rough edges and their absurd everyday life almost brings tears to the eyes, if Langer would not tell about them with so much wit, bite and well-fitting punch lines. And that in the most beautiful Oberbairisch. With a lot of charm, sometimes a little rough, sometimes thoughtful! The most famous figure, the anti-hero Sepp Bumsinger, is currently roaring through the whole republic via Facebook, Youtube and Whatsapp. Hundreds of thousands of clicks, laughs and fans. Sepp is simply so wonderfully straight, nothing shits itself. But even if the gmiatliche 4-half-Bayer is the viral VIP. Live on stage others have the say as well. "I derf des" is written on Markus Langer's t-shirt. Yes, he is allowed to do many things in his stage alter ego. Even when Tarzan is standing at the gas station, dressed only in a baggy tiger skin swim trunks, model 80s. Per mil: accidentally too much. Driver's license: soon gone. Job: already gone. Langer's figures fail persistently and at the same time, saulfully, at the small and big things in life, "not finishing a sentence, stumbling around in word rubble, repeating themselves. Anyone who can empathize so convincingly with the reality of life of a simple person struggling with language and the adversities of everyday life, and reproduce it, must (...) have a sure feeling for how stories can be told well and when a punch line will ignite," the Süddeutsche Zeitung was astonished. True. Markus Langer can do that. But he can also encourage people to take their own lives into their own hands: "No human being on this earth has ever survived his or her life, and for the fact that we are all only once on this beautiful earth, we don't let ourselves get carried away enough. Let's do it!"
