In his new show, FIL descends from the mountain he’s been living on since his ninth birthday (that's a metaphorical mountain, like The Magic Mountain, actually a real mountain, so it's more like a mountain of debt, which should actually be called a pit of debt, right?). FIL’s spent the past few decades concentrating on not making too big of a deal out of his grandeur. He became a comedian. He was happy because he was able to live out his two great talents: modesty and genius. And now, a new show once again. Just like every year by the way. Different from last year. More information

Afterwards he takes to the stage and tells his stories -- this year it’ll be for the 10th time. Followed by a Russendisko party in the Roter Salon until the early morning hours. More information
