german carneval on tv

Just to let you know: If you visit Germany, watch tv and you see some ordinary people on a stage – they could be your neighbours from downstairs – singing and dancing like probably your neighbours would do – this is called german carneval. In between there might be some other people standing on the stage talking, signalising with their costumes “gee, I am funny” and the audiences laughs no matter if its funny or not – probably due to the rising alcohol level. All this is being shown on many german tv stations at the moment so with german tv program often being not very good anyways there is even less to find.

That I’m understood correctly: I do think carneval is an ok idea and the parades outside where many people celebrate together are apparently fun for a lot of people but seriously I do not know why there is such a huge interest in these inside carneval parties being shown on tv.
