Jürgen von der Lippe - "FULL BOLD" The organizer Roth & Friends describes the event as follows:
"Voll Fett" is the name of the grand old man of diaphragm shaking his latest comedy program and this title is -as always- ambiguous, or polysemous, as I would say as an old linguist. On the one hand, it could mean: I'm much younger than I weigh, or be youth slang (juvenolect) for "really great."
The most obvious innovation is a giant screen as a stage backdrop, with which I fulfill a long-cherished wish: to create comedy with the help of pictures and small films, as I did for 10 years with "Geld oder Liebe". Ammunition for this is provided by my inexhaustible private archive, and in a few cases, when it suits, also by what comes at me daily via WhatsApp. It also allows me to constantly change the background mood. The program begins with a turbulent seminar on youth language, involving the audience, then explaining some differences between old and young that most were previously unaware of: Television behavior, what can be learned from young children, and sex.
Then I explain why the phone's photo function is the most important to me, followed by a first round of impactful visuals. After a virtuoso instrumental short version of "When a man loves a woman" I show the shallows of couple relationships with emphasis on shared bedrooms, formally leaning on Hegel, not his bedroom, but his dialectic, thesis, antithesis, synthesis. As I generally reminisce -appropriate to my age- in memories, of which Jean Paul says that they are the only paradise from which we cannot be expelled, I now look back on the three most beautiful love songs of my career, which I have slimmed down to a heartbreaking medley, which so emotionally preys on the many women in the audience that I felt compelled to counteract afterwards with a very small uplifting animal film.
This was followed by a lecture on the differences between male and female perspectives, incorporating the latest animal biology findings. After a small digression on Epicurus and his views on weighing fleeting pleasure against the long-term consequences, the text comes to its brilliant end in a thoroughly self-deprecating look at sex in old age. The first half ends with an acclaimed demonstration of the German Schlager performers who played an important role in my childhood biography in terms of health and psychology.
Part 2 is introduced by the old rocker Kalle, who tells about his experiences while flying. Then a short outline of the current state of science in the matter of alcohol, among other things the fact that people can solve puzzles better under moderate alcohol influence, which I let some ladies in the audience, who had perhaps once flirted with a career as a daytime newscaster, document with the help of nasty test texts. After glimpses of my planned doctoral dissertation: " Popular Drinksongs and Songs through the Ages," a new community-building drinking song follows. A review of my "wild" time follows, of course, only to explain how psychosomatic illnesses arise. Before that, I clarify that I am not a hypochondriac, as is often colported, but a nosophobic. Then the audience supports me in a mental improvisation, the description of which my modesty forbids me, because one could only work with superlatives. Illness, or rather a phase of convalescence full of suffering, is the next topic, in which the audience obviously suffers vividly, as the numerous acoustic reactions prove.
What follows is a very personal account of my childhood based on my own photographic material. Rudelsingen is a justifiably immensely popular undertaking, I do this with excerpts from four of my most popular songs and may say: the enthusiasm for it exceeds my wildest expectations. With a small, but very spectacular reading from my 13th book "Beim Dehnen singe ich Balladen" I conclude the official part, of course only to get the people completely off their chairs with "der Einsame", a poem by Heinz Erhard, for which I have written music that cries out for the participation of my oldest musical idols, Herbert Grönemeyer, Udo Lindenberg and Peter Maffay. The last encore belongs -as always, I almost want to say- to Donald Trump and the apocryphal sex video from Moscow. Of course, far be it from me to shove positive reviews under your nose, but sometimes it just saves you work.
