Otto and Astrid Rot of Die Roten Punkte are coming to The Cultch at next week, bringing their pop-music comedy to a new show entitled: Eurosmash!

Die Roten PunkteThe shows revolve around siblings Otto and Astrid Rot, a pair of German orphans whose parents were either eaten by a lion or crushed by a train (the two disagree and perpetually argue over which). On drums, Astrid is playful and lewd, stealing nips from a concealed bottle whenever her little brother isn’t looking. Guitar-wielding Otto is the sensitive one, swept away by childlike enthusiasm one moment and dumbstruck with horror at missing a note the next. Together, their act is a rollicking 75 minutes of sibling rivalry, sky-high egos, boastful one upsmanship, and masterfully performed, undeniably catchy rock.

In the spirit of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, this comedy duo has audiences laughing around the globe. Their show has been named Best Production – Montreal Fringe; Best Production (Cabaret) – Green Room, Melbourne; and Outstanding Production – Ottawa Fringe, among other honors. Die Roten Punkte even made their West Coast debut at the Vancouver Fringe Festival in 2010.

Eurosmash! will open at The Cultch in East Vancouver on August 28th and run until September 2nd. Tickets are currently on sale starting at $17.
