CABARET FEST – Hans Like A German – 5K

To put it into Hans’ words, German-born Matt Gilbertson (who plays Hans) is a “lucky bitch!”. Incredibly talented, Matt is more than a triple threat – he can sing, dance (including tap), act, as well as play the piano & the piano accordion.  There’s no doubting he is a great entertainer, even proving himself with some ‘hilarious’ impromptu comedy on the night.

For 70-minutes of bling & dazzle, the scantly clad, hot pants wearing, feather adorned & sequin covered German drag-esque performer sang pop covers, including a splash of ABBA. Hans’ spontaneous, crude banter entertained the sold-out audience, who were seated on round tables in true-cabaret-style.

The seating plan allowed for table dancing by Hans & his back up dancers, and the dancers plus support band, The Ungrateful Bastards, completed the show’s cabaret-unit, though it can be said Hans was the star of the show & could’ve shone on his own.

The most memorable moment of the show was the closing act, when Hans had the audience on their feet, singing & dancing to the “Korean love song” Psy’s ‘Gangham Style’.

Hans’ popularity is skyrocketing and this latest installment into his colourful career will only add to his credibility as a truly talented, national artist, and his ability to create performances, which captivate a wider, mainstream audience will serve him good.

The Adelaide Cabaret Festival is a stellar event, and Hans is the star of the show.

Hats off to Hans!
