When it comes to German podcasts, comedy is king. It’s the number one genre in the country, with more than a third of the top podcasts falling into the category. While there are dozens of shows that leave listeners in stitches, there’s yet to be one that celebrates comedy and the comedians who make fans laugh, snicker, and chuckle—until now. Enter Till Reiners and his new Spotify Original Podcast, Jokes.
Till is one of Germany’s most well-known comedians. He not only tours the country with his set, but he also has his own TV show and makes regular appearances on the satirical late-night show Heute Show.
Each week on Jokes, Till will be joined by a fellow comedian—newcomers and legends alike—to talk about their work, how they see the world, their influences, and how it all comes together. Some of the guests listeners can look forward to include Christian Ulmen, Aurel Mertz, and Hazel Brugger.
We caught up with Till to learn about his take on comedy, the ideal podcast guest, and more.
According to Spotify’s streaming data, comedy is currently the most popular podcast genre in Germany. Why do you think that is?
It’s entertainment, obviously! Most people like to listen to two funny people talking. And of course, it helps if it’s their job anyway.
