I started stand up in 2005 and worked my way up to being a full time professional comedian over the course of the next 3 years.
In 2005 I took a show, Gutless, to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The show was very well received and 6 months later it made its debut at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival receiving great reviews from The Metro (4 stars) and other newspapers.
The Age Melbourne : He’s cheaper than Prozac and by the end of the show you feel you’ve made a friend.
Metro : Berliner is a natural storyteller with more soul than a hundred other comedians.
The Telegraph : Gutless takes it’s audience from sympathy to tears and then onto loud laughter , hilarious show.
Since then I have performed solo shows and stand-up at major clubs and festivals across the UK, Europe and Internationally from Birmingham to Brussels to Bondi Beach!
