Well, what a rubbish year that turned out to be. Time for some fun! Delayed and delayed again because of you know what, AT LAST star comedian and conductor Rainer Hersch, Orkestra and guests take to the stage for the fifth edition of his New Year’s Eve Bash. It’s a concert, Jim, but not as you know it and 60 million views on YouTube can’t be wrong. Expect a fantastic blend of stand-up comedy, great music, hilarious new arrangements and audience interaction. This is total entertainment and absolutely the best way to restart your life, laughing.
