Hello! If you’re here you’ve asked for some bio pics, and material – here it is – take your pick 🙂
Nir Gottleid (IL) is an Israeli comic who has performed in the throughout Europe, the US, and Israel. He has come to Germany to, as he says, “make Germans feel uncomfortable as a form of reparations”; he would prefer to date Germans to achieve his goal, but sadly German women have intelligence, common sense, and eyes — therefore he’s forced to do comedy instead. His combination of dark humor, self-deprecation, and obscene “dad jokes” will leave him in stitches, because you are very likely to stab him after his set.
Nir has been touring Europe, and has produced multiple successful shows such as “The Berlin Offensive”, “Schindler’s Fist”, and more. He is widely regarded as the darkest comedian in the English comedy scene in Germany and more than meets that expectation by awkwardly talking to audiences about things he most definitely shouldn’t be talking about.
His first solo show, “The Revenge of the Jew-Di” is a 60 to 90 minute exploration of holocaust puns, the life of an Israeli expat in Germany, dating in modern day Berlin, and more. It is currently on tour in Germany and Europe and you can get tickets and see show times here!
Nir is currently working on his second solo show, “Middle Rage”. A show about aging, mental illness, war, trauma, and of course, more genocide puns.

Being in your 20s is glorious; being in your 30s is a joy. Being in your 40s sucks, because your 40s are when you finally realize all the things you’ve done wrong in your life so far. Nir Gottleid, an Israeli English language comedian shares his feelings about turning 40 – and talks about the fun sides of depression, anxiety, cats, hate crimes dating as a single old man, and the bitterness rage and feeling of acceptance that can only come with a life exhaustively lived.
