One of Germany's most popular and influential comedians, Otto Waalkes has recorded a large number of hit comedy albums, starred in immensely successful movies, written best-selling books, drawn popular comics, and gathered numerous awards. He is one of the country's leading comedians and has become a part of general pop culture: many of his sketches have become classics, and several of his phrases and jokes have become public catch phrases. Even after several years of little media attention in the '90s, he managed to launch a comeback in the new millennium and continues to be a popular and respected figure in Germany's comedy scene. ~ Christian Genzel
