Boozier than Oktoberfest, more drive than a Volkswagen, and more sausage than a bratwurst convention, I am Hans - Germany’s proudest and hottest export. I'm an international superstar, sex symbol, accordionist and Berlin boy-wonder who has been thrilling audiences around the globe with my own fabulous brand of award-winning comedy cabaret for over a decade. I've performed for everyone, from Prime Ministers to Princesses, paupers to paper boys, and soon... maybe you! 

In 2018 I won the hearts of 16 million Americans with my cheeky and electrifying song and dance routines on NBC’s juggernaut TV series, America’s Got Talent. As I say, “Darling, I went there to make America glitter again. It was calling me and I answered!” 

Flash forward to 2020 and I put my foot down on the gas of my luxury German four wheel drive as I accepted my invitation to return to the USA and appear on America’s Got Talent: The Champions (NBC). Competing against the very best contestants from the US, Europe and God knows where else, I made it through to the Grand Final and was declared one of the ten best entertainers in the world (no, really, look it up). 

My original production of Hans: Like a German debuted to sell-out crowds at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2019, winning the Best Cabaret award and followed by a nationwide tour. Now with an über spring in my step, my brand new show, Haus of Hans: Disco Spektakulär, premiered at Adelaide Fringe Festival 2020. It was my most ambitious production ever and became the highest-selling comedy cabaret show at the festival, and the highest grossing South Australian production too. To top it all off, I took home the coveted Best Cabaret award for the second year in a row. Yes honey! 

Not one to push down my fishnets, I also released my first single in 2020. Oxygen is a disco/dance anthem co-written by me and legendary producer and musical director Chong Lim (of John Farnham and Olivia Newton John fame).  

On television you may have seen my electrifying medley of Eurovision songs on Eurovision: Australia Decides Live (SBS) and appearances on The Good Friday Appeal (Seven), Sunrise (Seven), The Today Show (Nine), Studio 10 (Ten), The Morning Show (Seven), Carols in The Domain (Seven), SA Weekender (Seven)… you get it, I go where the money is
