Boozier than Oktoberfest, more drive than a Volkswagen and more sausage than a bratwurst convention – Hans is Germany’s proudest export.
An international superstar, sex symbol, accordionist and Berlin boy-wonder. Hans has been thrilling audiences around the globe with his own fabulous brand of critically acclaimed comedy cabaret for over a decade, performing for everyone from Prime Ministers to Princesses, paupers to paper boys.
In 2018 Hans won the hearts of 16 million Americans with his cheeky and electrifying song and dance routines on NBC’s juggernaut TV series, America’s Got Talent. Hans was much loved by judges Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and host Tyra Banks. Hans said, “Darlings, I went there to make America glitter again. It was calling me and I answered!”
Hans brought his new stage show Hans: Like a German to the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The sell out show added Best Cabaret at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival Awards to his plus sized trophy cabinet.
You will always see Hans on TV if you miss a live show including an electrifying performance on Eurovision: Australia Decides Live 2019, Celebrity Name Game Australia and guest judge role on Australia’s Got Talent.
Hans is the creation of Adelaide born Matt Gilbertson, himself an accomplished journalist who has worked in print, radio and television.
