early life

Dieter Nuhr was born on October 29, 1960 in Wesel, where he also spent the first four years of his life before the family moved to the Rhenish metropolis of Düsseldorf. There Nuhr passed his Abitur at the Leibniz-Gymnasium before he studied fine arts and history at the University of Essen in 1981 to become a teacher. There he was able to take his first state examination in 1988. Nuhr first came into contact with work on stage during his school days in a theater club. During a project of the theater group at the Düsseldorf theatre, he already drafted the first lecture texts. Together with his partner Frank Küster, Dieter Nuhr founded the cabaret duo “VEV-K.Barett” in 1986. With their joint program “Have you noticed your closet number?” In 1987 they gave their first performances on various cabaret stages. Two years later, the new program entitled “Pralle Pracht” was created before the project name was slightly changed in 1990. At the beginning of the 1990s, the two of them performed under the name VEV-Cabaret with their program “Schrille Stille”. A final program entitled “Zipfeltreffen” followed before Dieter Nuhr focused on his solo career in 1994.


With his program “Nuhr am Nörgeln”, which appeared in 1998, the cabaret artist received media attention throughout Germany and various awards for his live performances followed. Due to many appearances on television, for example in programs such as “window wipers”, “Hüsch” and Co.”, “The Harald Schmidt Show”, “Quatsch Comedy Club”, “Genial next to it”, “Schillerstraße” or “7 days, 7 Heads”, Nuhr became accessible to a wider audience. Due to this fact, a total of around 500,000 people visited his program “I’m Nuhr”. In 2004 he presented a humorous review of the year on the Sat.1 channel and has been broadcast in a similar format on the ZDF channel since 2006. In 2008, Dieter Nuhr moderated the German Comedy Award for the first time and a year later was again active on ZDF in the four-part comedy series “Nuhr so”. In 2010, Nuhr produced a two-part special for the 2010 World Cup for the RTL broadcaster, in which he ironically commented on and presented the subject of the sport. In 2011, Dieter took over the moderation of the ARD program “Satire Summit” which was previously moderated by Mathias Richling. As of October 2014, the format was renamed “nuhr im Erste”. In 2013, Dieter Nuhr moderated the German Comedy Award on RTL for the sixth time. In November 2018, as part of its “Justice” theme week, the ARD broadcaster broadcast the 45-minute special entitled “Nuhr Justly”, in which the cabaret artist dealt with justice and equal opportunities in nature, society, politics and sport.

Famous quotes

“Because my daughter goes to the Friday demonstrations, I will no longer heat the children’s room. If our children think we can power this world with a bit of sun and wind, then we parents should put a hamster wheel with a dynamo in their children’s room. Then they can charge their phones.”
-Dieter Nuer

“Socialism is closely related to Buddhism, since both teachings mean for the individual that it is no longer worth moving in this life.”
-Dieter Nuer

Amazing Facts

According to a judge’s verdict, Dieter Nuhr can be dubbed a “hate preacher” because of his sometimes highly Islam-critical content. The initial situation was the dispute with the Muslim Erhat Toka, who reported Nuhr in 2014 for hate speech and insults and described him as a “hate preacher”. Nuhr also took legal action against this designation, but failed. Because of this fact, he can now be called that without any consequences.
