"The show must go on": Otto Waalkes recommends humor against worries

Otto Waalkes is one of the most successful comedians in Germany. However, he also has a serious side and worries about the Ukraine war. But a good mood would also help, according to the 74-year-old.

East Frisian Otto Waalkes sets humor against worries: the actor and musician is very worried about the war in Ukraine and the consequences for many people. "You worry, I can't do much more at the moment," said the comedian. "I can only try to spread a good mood despite everything - that's my only talent."

He also found the period after September 11, 2001, when the attack on the World Trade Center in New York was difficult. "I was about to do a tour. Instead of canceling it, I remembered the American optimism: 'The show must go on.'" Although he has matured and sometimes has small signs of exhaustion, he does not want to retire: " Painting helps against everything, including maturity and exhaustion."

In order not to rust, he plays the piano, guitar, tennis and goes swimming. "From spring to October I swim in the Elbe," says the Hamburger by choice. "I am an East Frisian and grew up on the North Sea." Waalkes also likes the 49-euro ticket and wants to use it. "Taking the train is a lifetime gift. However, my winter quarters in Florida are difficult to reach by train."
