When one man sells out the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, a venue with a capacity of over 70,000 people, there is no denying that he is a big deal. The German comedian Mario Barth did just that in 2008 when he was on tour for his show Männer sind primitiv aber glücklich! (Men Are Primitive But Happy). With a brand of humor defined by simple themes, which usually revolve around the conflict between men and women in a relationship, Barth uses material that is easy to relate to for anyone who has ever argued with a significant other. Although some critiques have labeled his work as too simplistic, and sometimes even sexist, his huge commercial success proves that he connects with a wide audience.
