Aach des noch – not that as well!

When local comedian “Schüssel” held the premiere of his now show “Aach des noch!”, which roughly translates as “Not that as well!”, it was his second attempt.

“Aach des noch” was probably what he was thinking when he fell ill on the day he had intended on holding it, but he apparently reckoned without his dog “Flocki” passing on a bout of bronchitis causing him to lose his voice.

By the second attempt on Friday, 11th October, 2013 at the Brauhaus, he was rid of it and had passed it on instead to his long-suffering wife “Frieda”, commenting that he was now enjoying some peace and quiet at home. [Read more…]

A cold and wet fountain festival (Brunnenfest)

The fountain festival (Brunnenfest) in Oberursel stands a good chance of being remembered for its weather.  Not only for the wet Sunday, but for the cold and at times damp weather on Friday evening or Saturday afternoon.  In particular, it may well go down in the history of the festival as the one where snow lay on the Feldberg, with sub-zero temperatures in parts of the Taunus in Friday morning.

But for some, Fountain Queen Annabel I. in particular, the weather was not going to spoil the weekend and she cheerily opened the festival on Friday evening accompanied by pageant queens from other towns, who she took on a tour of the Strackgasse to see her parents’ house.

The sun even came out for her to officially inaugurate “her” fountain – the stork fountain (Storchenbrunnen) – which is located on one side of the Maasgrundweiher, accompanied by her Brunnenmeister and an honorary guard from Ursellis Historica. [Read more…]

Schüssel and Friends at Kiosk-Lotto Mohr

Schüssel and friends at Kiosk-Lotto Mohr

Freezing temperatures last Saturday did not stop local comedian Peter Schüssler (aka “Die Schüssel”) and his friends – the regulars and other volunteers at Kiosk-Lotto Mohr in the Dornbachstraße – from setting up a stall outside the shop to sell sausages and mulled wine to support his annual Christmas campaign “Schüssel und Freunde helfen” (Schüssel and friends help).

The campaign, which is now in its 10th year, supports a family in Oberursel who, through no fault of their own, have found themselves in trouble.  This being the 10th year, they have set themselves the ambition target of helping two families instead.


Schüssel Live – The Schnuudedunker

“What’s a Schnuudedunker” you may ask?

“Schnuudedunker” is the name of the latest act from local comedian “Schüssel”, that premiered at the Brauhaus last Saturday.  The event was sold out, and given that the room only had space for 97 guests everyone was in some way close to the stage.

But Schüssel doesn’t stay on the stage all evening.  He sings.  And some of his songs he writes himself, such as “Ein Euro für die Schüssel, die Schüssel die ist Pleite” (“A Euro for Schüssel, Schüssel is Broke”) and “Jetzt sind wir Pleite in unser’ Städtchen” (“Now we’re broke in out little town”), the first of which he performed cap in hand, leading some members of the audience to really put a Euro in.

The unexpected “collection” came to €27.07, a sachet of ketchup, a sachet of mayonnaise and a sachet of mustard, the financial part of which will be donated to the local charity that he runs. [Read more…]
