Berlin boy-wonder Hans is many things. He’s an accordionist, a dancer, a comedian and an international sex-symbol. After making it all the way to the finals of America’s Got Talent, Hans’ cabaret career soared. His show is packed with glitter and dance and will no doubt feature Hans in a tight sparkly costume playing his accordion.
Despite this being Hans’ debut tour in Australia he has visited the country many times over the years. When asked what he’s most looking forward to doing while over here this time around he responded: “You know what, honey? Berlin is my home, but there is something about Australia that feels so familiar to me every time I visit… I think it’s the people. After all, I can relate to them. They’re really just like me at the end of the day… Just not as glamorous!”
Hans guarantees that Like A German is his biggest and best show yet, saying: “There’s singing, dancing, comedy, drama, thrills, spills, glitter and feathers. And there’s even a live band: The Ungrateful Bastards.”
Hans isn’t one to exaggerate and reassured us that audiences would experience the best night of their lives at his show saying, “in short… it’s the greatest night of your life! That is no exaggeration.”
