the best german comedy show EVER.
28 July 2003 | by n000gSee all my reviews

rtl samstag nacht is truly based on saturday night live, but its NOT lousy. it was the first real comedy show of that format ever in germany. it pushed the comedy boom here. without samstag nacht, there wouldnt be that much comedy in tv today. way too bad, the show was canceled after 5 years in 1998.

me and my friends back then always watched it. is was a highlight on tv every week. a must-see. when i hear the show's theme, i remember the time back then. almost brings a tear to my eye. :)

i love SuperRTL for rerunning the show, even if they bring it every night.
