Comedian Kurt Schoonraad chats about dating a German

Comedian Kurt Schoonraad joined the Scenic Drive to talk about dating someone other than a South African - and his new show, 'Living With The German'.

Comedian Kurt Schoonraad is back with a comedy show about the funny side of a culture clash, called 'Living With The German'. 

As if cohabitation between a man and a woman isn't difficult enough, add two contrasting cultures trying to learn about each other in the multi-cultural epicentre of Cape Town - and you have a laugh-a-minute show.

Within the current international obsession of who is right and who is wrong dominating our media, this show explores how all human beings are, at the core, the same - they just have different skin tones, languages, passports, and ideas of appropriate footwear.

'Living With The German' is based on Kurt Schoonraad’s 20-year relationship with his German partner. He shares the misunderstandings, the stories, the contrasts as they try to make sense of this crazy modern world and each other. 

Born and bred in South Africa, the epicentre of multicultural cohabitation, 'Living With The German' looks at why sometimes the high of domestic bliss – in any culture - is nothing more than learning to love the very pink, very fluffy slippers you got for Christmas. 

Anyone who has ever been in a relationship will find Kurt Schoonraad’s take on human interactions, both in and out of love, funny and often think, “Oh my word! I have done that.”

Because of our differences, we actually have so much more to celebrate. It is Kurt's personal perspective and understanding, and his uniquely accessible comedy-style that make his show universal.
