Jan Böhmermann

Jan Böhmermann, born in 1981, is a German satirist and television and radio host. He has also produced videos and published books.

Known in Germany for his biting satires, Jan Böhmermann has worked extensively as a radio and television host in Germany, mainly in the area of comedy and entertainment. He has frequently made headlines and raised eyebrows with his controversial satire projects. In the #Varoufakis affair in 2015, he broadcast a manipulated video, which showed Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis showing his middle finger. He took Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to task in 2016 with a satirical and snide poem. Böhmermann provokes with his work - and stirs up critical discourse in Germany on the boundaries of satire and freedom of speech.
