Berlin – Ralf Schmitz (48) wanted to make his fans laugh with his comedy program. But on this one special evening, it was visibly difficult for him to keep his good mood. The reason for this: Hans Sigl (53), Barbara Schöneberger (49) and "Do you understand fun?".
Ralf Schmitz can't believe it: Fans storm the stage during comedy show
