Celebrated in the 1980s mike kruger And Thomas Gottschalko Great successes as “Die Superensen” and still successful as entertainers today. But one of them still isn’t thinking about leaving and just says “Waton, Das..?” While celebrating his return to the couch, the other is now announcing the end of his TV career.
“I’m retiring from the show!” Mike Kruger made the announcement in an interview with “Build”. Reason: He wants to pay more attention to his personal life. Over the past few decades, he has often been on the road for months and sleeps in more hotels than at home. The comedian, who turned 70 on December 14, said, “It was all great. But now it’s time to give my wife some time back.”
More solidarity on the 46th wedding anniversary
Two days ago he and his Birgit celebrated their 46th wedding anniversary. His gift should be greater solidarity. That means: no more forums, tours and TV shows. They don’t have to rely on him anyway, says Kruger. “I’m good at numbers, my wife is better at counting. Thanks to her observation, my pension is over,” he says.
But comedians absolutely can’t give it up. “You can’t go into retirement without irony. That’s why I’m sticking my nose at something new. I’m building my own YouTube channel with my good friend Slizzy Bob, a format is ‘7 days, a head’ Based on one of their most successful formats, “7 Days, 7 Heads”, which was shown on RTL from 1996 to 2005.
