Stefan Waghubinger is a native Austrian, studied theology, househusband, cabaret artist and trained Swabian. In 2009, when he was already in his mid-forties, he went on stage with his first cabaret solo program and won several prizes for it. On Friday, February 2nd, he comes to the Old Cinema in Ebersberg and whispers to the audience: “I'm just saying it to you now.”
With an Austrian accent and Swabian thoroughness, the Stuttgart native shakes doors, encounters plush elephants and ancient gods, shoots at robot lawn mowers and is finally a winner. No wonder, since he's playing Monopoly against himself. He comes to the game theory insight: “If you're not lucky when rolling the dice, you have to try harder when rolling the dice.”
Once again, stories emerge with astonishing twists and turns, deeply sad and yet hilarious. Cynical and warm-hearted, banal and at the same time surprisingly witty. A circle around the things that really matter, why there is so much of it and why we have so little of it. “Light as a feather and polished. There are only a few cabaret artists who can compete with Waghubinger's art of formulation – and there are only very few colleagues whose polished texts float through the hall so light as a feather,” was the verdict General newspaper Mainz.
