This film is a tribute to the work of comedian Karl Valentin. Presented in such a way as to give the viewer the impression he or she is part of a carnival audience, excerpts from the artist's performances are seamlessly shown on the screen. Most of the excerpts are more or less brief sketches of Valentin displaying his usual comedic style. The film, however, finishes with two, slightly longer pieces ("Going to the Theatre" and "The Orchestra Rehearsal"), both of which employ much fumbling and confusion and other artistic devices typical to slapstick comedy. 

DVD-R is in German with no subtitles.  Approx. 85 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
