Cabaret & Comedy in Hamburg

Hamburgers don't go to the basement to laugh - they go to the theater, to a stand-up show, to a cabaret, and and and.... There are opportunities for this all over the city. Comedies are performed at the Winterhuder Fährhaus (often with a prominent cast), young comedians find a stage at the Schmidtchen to present new formats, and the Polittbüro is the place to go for cabaret fans.
