Whether government or opposition, corporations or public authorities, public media or boulevard trash producers, Trump or Putin: they all want to get a grip on public opinion and increasingly rely on message control. But who controls the controllers?

Florian Scheuba, Austria's most important investigative satirist, tries.

Every week anew. Always with a new guest. Always in search of facts and backgrounds, explanations and oaths of revelation, hidden truths and exposed propaganda.

Entertainment in the service of the Enlightenment.

Take it instead of take it.

Late night instead of message control.

From March 13 to May 15, every Friday at 22.30

Program and cast

Kabarett Simpl

The "Simpl" in the Wollzeile in the first district of Vienna.
The Simpl is a cabaret opened in 1911 as beer cabaret Simplicissimus in Vienna-Innere Stadt. In the 1920s and 30s he produced cabaret greats such as Fritz Grünbaum and Karl Farkas. Until today it is one of the most successful and most important cabaret stages in Vienna. Name, lettering and the red bulldog refer to the Munich satirical magazine Simplicissimus, founded in 1896.

Opened on 25 October 1911 as the beer cabaret Simplicissimus, it was soon referred to by the Viennese as "Der Simpl". A colourful programme of chansons, piano improvisations and artistic performances etc. made the theatre one of the most popular cellar theatres in Vienna.
