Paco Erhard: Worst. German. Ever.

Paco Erhard—The Cinematheque

Known for his wildly popular standup routine, Paco has woven in storytelling this year. And we loved it! It always helps engage your crowd when you share experiences from your actual existence. Especially in such a heartstrings tugging manner, he found the perfect balance between pathos and humour.

I really identified with his struggle to get close to his homophobic father. He shows that while we are looking for one thing, we may be missing something even more precious that is already there. His Dad’s dementia actually opened his eyes to to the goodness in the man. He actually had tears in both of our eyes, his, and ours.

We find out why he was called ‘the worst German’, although he pointed out one or two more terrible come to mind. I particularly loved his story of the Hungarian donut shop, where he fought for gay rights through pastry. Genius! His political comments were right on the mark, astute but so sad things have come to this. In hindsight, it’s difficult to believe he managed to so cleverly cover so many topics, plus seamlessly intertwine a very moving story, in just an hour.

Afterwards, the large crowd lined up to express their appreciation in a long line after the late night show. Winner winner, spaetzle dinner! Please see this while you can!
