Trying to find your own identity is not always easy. German-American comedian Lucie Pohl takes up this challenge with her hilarious show Hi Hitler showing in Los Angeles this weekend, at the Complex Theater on December 13-14, 2014.
Lucie grew up in Germany until the age of eight before moving with her family to New York. Feeling always different and trying to make sense of her heritage in a not always welcoming world, it was hard to fit in. Many obstacles paved this never-ending path.
“Told in English and German this 60 minute storytelling blitzcomedy follows a German-Jew, who grows up in a wild family of artists, is fascinated by der Führer from age four and uprooted from Hamburg to NYC at eight. As Bertolt Brecht’s real-life niece, Lucie yearns for normalcy, but being different seems to run in her bloodline and escaping her inherited high-drama-destiny might just be impossible. A pinch of Hitler, a cup of hip hop and a dash of Hasselhoff.”
Her much acclaimed show had a sold out Edinburgh Fringe debut, a debut on London’s West End, and a sold-out OFF-Broadway preview run at 59E59 Theaters. German-American actress and comedian Lucie Pohl now brings her 5 star solo show Hi, Hitler to Los Angeles for 2 nights only.
Lucie Pohl: Hi, Hitler – At The Complex Theater Sat. & Sun. December 13-14 at 8pm.
