Funny van Dannen (GER)
Funny van Dannen is multi-talented. Born in the Netherlands, with Berlin as his adoptive home, the painter, author and songwriter moves between slapstick and melancholy in an extremely skilful manner. In addition, he is “a great singer and performer, a true poet” (3sat Kulturzeit). The metropolitan poet who also writes texts for the band “Die Toten Hosen”, has truly earned this reputation, and his sold-out concerts and the odd place in the hit chart, with his eight books and 14 albums.
