Kaya Yanar: „Zurück , Müsli, Tschüss!“Kaya Yanar graced the Trifolion with his show “Made in Germany” on the 21st and 22nd of March. The talented comedian introduces the idiosyncrasies and shared characteristics of Germans, Turks and other cultures in a very entertaining and amusing way.
On both Saturday as well as Sunday the large Atrium of the Trifolion was completely booked out: more than 1200 guest had been able to get tickets.
Kaya Yanar, the German from Frankfurt with Turkish roots, delighted everyone without exception.
His show is all about, as the title already says, Germany and its citizens. Those who expected an old copy of German stereotypes were spared as luck has it. A potpourri of cultural idiosyncrasies from around the globe infuses the show.
The mainly Luxembourgian audience with guests from Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Turkey joined Yanar in a humorous two-hour long journey around the world: from the necessary God-fearing attitude while in traffic in Istanbul to Dutch terrorists and dancing Indians to Germany as “civilized, cultivated country with a high amount of aggression on their motorways”.
Besides his great comedic talent, Yanar demonstrates a fundamental power of observation that presents scientific insights: He states that “each language has phonetic weaknesses that you can laugh about!”. Yanar advises the Croatians, as a people with consonants, to have the Turks give them some of their Üs since they have plenty of them. The advantage of these umlauts is clearly seen in the Turkish “wheel of fortune”: the purchase of a Ü will bring the bell to a never-ending chime of “ding-ding-ding-ding”. The Germans on the other hand shouldn’t laugh so much about the Turks pronouncing their Üs says Yanar, since they are happy to use these umlauts in the German language as well: “how about – zurück, müsli and tschüss?”
Kaya Yanar is absolutely commendable. In the acoustically optimal Atrium he communicated directly with individuals in the audience, which brought clear laughter. The two-hour attack to the midriff had a short break for everyone in order to stretch their legs in the foyer and to exchange comments over a glass of whine.
The visitor can see the show talent of the easygoing entertainer live much better then on TV. Each guest at the Trifolion was magnetized by Yanar´s gift of entertaining. He addressed an audience of all ages. It is rare to have 17 as well as 70 year-olds laugh heartily, though it would be advisable to have children watch the show on censured television.
It is almost certain that visitors will fight for tickets should there be a Yanar-Trifolion-Revival.
