Review of Freaks: A highly entertaining show with 20 bizarre artists

One of the great things about Berlin is the fact that you are able to visit different entertaining shows throughout the whole year. From comedy to musicals and from opera to circus: Berlin offers it all. But the show we are writing about in this article cannot be compared by anything you have seen before. Freaks is such a bizarre and unique show that I would recommend everybody to visit it at least once.

From the makers of Flic Flac

One of the most enjoyable shows we have seen in the last couple of years was a modern-styled circus called Flic Flac. This circus has been touring through Germany since 1989 and their latest production is called: Freaks. A show which reminds you of the early years of the circus, where visitors paid money to see people who were extraordinary and different than others. Now you can see exactly that in Berlin-Friedrichshain.

Freaks: 20 extraordinary artists

In the show Freaks you will be able to observe 20 bizarre artists who do the most extraordinary things to entertain you. The show is not for everybody: You have to be at least 16 years old and it is important that you are not prude and like a bit of bizarreness. Expect performances like a woman who swallows a sword, an imitation of Adolf Hitler and two guys from Australia who can do crazy things with there penises.

Our review of Freaks in Berlin

We have been visiting many shows in Berlin but Freaks is definitely a highlight. As mentioned before, you have to be into a bit of bizarreness but the show is most certainly entertaining. I have to admit that it has been quite a long time since I have been laughing so much during a show. You will just not believe your eyes. We also loved the fact that the the tent is reasonable small so everybody is actually sitting very close to the stage. The artists have a lot of interaction with the audience and it all creates a very nice and intimate vibe.

Besides all the positive things mentioned above, the music during the show is also very good. The lead singer of a famous band called Northern Lite is singing the sings live while the artists are performing. One small disadvantage for international tourists might be that some parts of the shows are in German, but I am sure you will still have a great time if you do not exactly understand what they are saying.
