The Fish Bowl is located in an unassuming venue tucked into the shadows of Berolina Strasse, right off of Karl Marx Allee.  Entering the lounge area you’re greeted by the enticing glow of refrigerators filled with a variety of adult beverages ready to quench your thirst.  The lounge is filled with table and couches, it’s almost like walking into the green room before a performance especially as the comedians and musicians mill about greeting friends and guests.  As showtime approaches details are tended to one last time.

The evening’s entertainment, brought to you by Neil Numb, Chris Glen and Sarah Lehmann showcases local and international comedians and musicians.  Previous performers have come as far away as Australia and as nearby as Germany.  Every other Thursday you’ll find a new line-up of talented performers that will keep you returning every fortnight.  The language of this international crowd is English although a little familiarity the German culture and language never hurts.

In addition to being one of your hosts every fortnight at the Fish Bowl, Neil also performs stand-up.  Nothing escapes him as the breadth of topics that he’s covered range from alternate realities, physics, pulling off a proper granny drag outfit and getting busted by the cops in a bikini.  The man is full of surprises.

Chris Glen also performs double duty at the Fish Bowl, performing acoustic sets of original music as well as covers of some of his favorite songs.  Some of the previously unreleased tracks will be featured on his upcoming cd, which he’s currently working on recording.

Don’t worry if you’re not ready to leave after the evening’s line-up has finished, there’s more!  DJ BB Rex  is spinning selected tracks from his impressive collection of 45s for your listing and dancing pleasure.
