Summer, sun, party time! Many people are happy to finally be able to go out carefree again. In her show, Carolin Kebekus takes a look at what women have to pay attention to.

“Summer will be good” sang Caroline Kebekus a year ago together with Karl Lauterbach. The song was aimed at the infection process – today’s Minister of Health promised an end to the lockdown and joint pub evenings.

A year later, the comedienne again deals with the subject of partying. This time, however, not from the perspective of the pandemic – she looks at the topic of going out from the point of view of women.

Basically, Kebekus makes it clear that she’s really keen to throw herself back into nightlife: “A lot of the basic party knowledge is gone after a two-year Corona break,” said the 42-year-old when recording her last show before the summer break . “What’s the name of Niki Lauda’s mother? How do you stop drunk friends from texting their ex?”

But it quickly becomes clear that it’s not always that funny. Because: “It’s not that carefree with partying – at least for Women“, begins the woman from Cologne. And explains what she means by that: It starts with the fact that you have to think about how to get home safely before the party, says Kebekus. The clothes also want to be well chosen, ” also depends on whether you are going there and back by train or taxi. Don’t give too much attack surface.”

There are other challenges in the club itself: on the one hand, women should make sure to always remain nice when they are rebuffed, so that the situation does not escalate. At the same time, they have to keep their eyes open so that no one pours knockout drops into their glasses. “Otherwise you end up as a joke for Faisal Kawusi.” Even worse is a new trend called “needle spiking,” in which women are injected with party drugs unnoticed.

Kebekus rewrote the lyrics to Whigfield’s “Saturday Night” to show what women need to think about if they just want to go out in a carefree manner. She calls it the Real Life Edition.

“The Carolin Kebekus Show” will be broadcast on Thursday at 10:50 p.m. on the first
