Marc-Uwe Kling

Marc-Uwe Kling, 2018 Marc-Uwe Kling (born 1982 in Stuttgart) is a German songwriter, author, and ''Kabarett'' (political stand-up comedy) artist. He studied philosophy and drama at Freie Universität Berlin.

Since 2003, Kling regularly performs on various stages in Berlin. Frequently, he performs at literary and ''Kabarett'' events as well as poetry slams. In 2004, he founded a serial public literary event called ''Lesedüne'' (a pun made of the German words ''Lesebühne'', "lecture stage", and ''Düne'', "dune"). Since 2005, Kling tours with his program ''Wenn alle Stricke reißen, kann man sich nicht mal mehr aufhängen'' (If all ropes snap, you can't even hang yourself anymore), which is also the title of his first album. Every first Tuesday of the month, he organizes and hosts the ''Kreuzberg Slam'' in the ''Lido'' (formerly ''Kato'') location, and every first Wednesday the ''Poetry Slam of Studentisches Kulturzentrum'' in Potsdam.

Currently, he authors the weekly podcast ''Neues vom Känguru'' ("News from the Kangaroo") for Fritz, a Potsdam-based radio station, which deals with the same theme as his book ''Die Känguru-Chroniken'' (The Kangaroo Chronicles): A "phlegmatic anarchist" who lives with a talking, "pragmatically communist" kangaroo as his roommate.

In 2017, Kling published a comedic dystopian novel titled ''QualityLand''. In March 2019, HBO announced that they would create a series based on the book, directed by Mike Judge. Provided by wikipedia
