OTTO

It’s 2021 – and that time of the year again! Otto Waalkes does what he loves doing best: going on tour and playing the Olympic Hall in Munich.

About the MAN: If someone has managed to make a career just using his first name, then you should know that he’s come a long way. And if it also happens to be his real first name (and not a made up one like ‘Loriot’ or ‘Campino’), then he has really made it! Without even using a nickname or a diminutive alias, Otto has truly arrived. In Germany, it’s a common first name: four German emperors were called Otto and there were at least as many inventors with that name.

About the SUBJECT: Of course, controversy is never far off, with the Süddeutsche Zeitung daily newspaper being particularly unforgiving. “Otto Waalkes has done a lot of harm. He’s the one responsible for the infection of a whole generation of Germans by that ridiculous ‘hop-step’ unleashed by Waalkes fans across the world, and uttering "Hahaaa!" for no apparent reason!”

According to the latest surveys, more than half of respondents in German-speaking countries would think of some other Otto, when mentioning the name. The rest would burst out laughing!
