from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The addition was a Satire broadcast in the radio , the weekly WDR 2 was broadcast.


The radio satire program encore had been around since 1995. It was initially broadcast daily, later weekly, and most recently every Friday from 10:30 pm to 11:30 pm. The predecessor was the long-standing cabaret show Entertainment à la carte on WDR 2. The title of the show comes from WDR editor Günther Krotky, who regularly looked after the encore in its early years.


In the broadcast, current affairs were satirically processed. It consisted of individual contributions that were linked by a moderation. A large part of the contributions consisted of regular series such as Angie Late Night (parody of Angela Merkel in the form of a late night show ), Erdoradio (parody of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ), Two and a half presidents (parody of Two and a Half Men with Erdogan, Putin and Trump as flat share residents), Die Von der Leyens (parody of Ursula von der Leyen and her large family), Lobbythek (parody of the Hobbythek ), Kwoxenkohl (parody of Quarks & Co. ), The Pupsburger Augenkiste (parody of the Augsburger Puppenkiste ) and Sarko de Funès (parody of Nicolas Sarkozy in the style of Louis de Funès ). For the Internet presence and social media channels, some episodes of the Two and a half presidents were animated as animated films.

Formerly there was Die Hartzons (parody of The Waltons ), Schloss Koalitionsstein (parody from the horror genre of Angela Merkel and Ronald Pofalla ), Tim Mahl (parody of Tim Mälzer ), the poem from Berlin (current news excerpts in rhyme form) and many more. The duo Onkel Fisch regularly contributed song parodies. Occasionally the Chanson of the Month ( SWR 2 ) by Thomas Pigor was included in the encore, rarely episodes of the earlier NDR series Stenkelfeld . Until Volker Pispers left the WDR 2 Kabarett show , some of his contributions were also used there.

In addition, cabaret classics, excerpts from current cabaret programs and guests from the German-speaking cabaret scene had their place. Occasionally the encore also took place live in front of an audience.

Most recently, Sigrid Fischer , Tobias Brodowy and Christoph Tiemann took turns moderating . Former moderators were Stephan Fritzsche , Henning Bornemann , Axel Naumer and René Steinberg . Regular participants also included Tom Beinlich , Onkel Fisch , Richard Berkowski , Uli Winters , Maria Grund-Scholer , Martin Zingsheim , Nils Heinrich , Markus Hennig , Fritz Eckenga , Jana Fischer , Urs von Wulfen , Detlev Gröning , Dietmar Wischmeyer , Mathias Piecha and Heinrich Pachl .
