International Superstar, Sex Symbol, World Record Holder and Accordionist, Hans is back once again for Fringe 2010.
Following the sold-out success of “Accordion Boys Do It Better” in 09 and “The Showpony Tour” in 08, he will be joined once again by his band, The Ungrateful Bastards and his dancers, The Lucky Bitches for a night of song, dance and seduction in his new cabaret show “The Hans Seduction”
“The name for the show came from people’s first reaction of when they meet me. It’s like they see me, and they fall in love. I don’t intend to seduce people…. It just happens” Hans said.
Last year’s show was nominated in the Best Cabaret category of the Fringe awards and this year, Hans intends to take it prize.
“I was delighted to have been nominated last year, because that’s the thing you’re meant to say, but this year I will be taking no prisoners…. Contrary to normal German Practice” Hans said.
“I’m even doing some lovely rock songs this year which will be a treat because I haven’t been ACDC since high school”.
“The Hans Seduction” runs from March 4-6 and 11-3
Hans is the creation of Adelaide performer Matt Gilbertson and began as part of the show Berlin Cabaret, the mother ship show at faux German venue The Weimar Room, in 2003. Following a year long stint at Comix Comedy Cellars, Hans began work at Boho Bar, where he still appears on a weekly basis.
It was through working at Boho that Hans caught the attention of radio station Nova 919 where he soon became celebrity gossip reporter from 2007.
During his time at Nova, Hans interviewed some of the world’s biggest stars including Nicole Kidman, Fergie and Pink and covered A-List red carpet events such as the Logie Awards, MTV Awards and numerous Aria Awards.
In 2008 Hans achieved a world record for continuous accordion playing for almost 30 hours playing only Madonna tunes. This record remains unbeaten.
Hans has produced two sold out cabaret shows for the Adelaide Fringe Festival. “The Showpony Tour” in 08 and “Accordion Boys Do It Better” in 09 which was nominated for a Best Cabaret award in the 2009 Fringe Awards.
