In cooperation with Swiss Video-on-Demand-supplier Watch4 Riverside Entertainment is redesigning the “Quatsch Comedy Club” – a famous German Stand-up-Comedy show by inventor Thomas Hermans – for the digital age. In the future, the Comedy-Original will be broadcast exclusively online and via Watch4. Riverside is taking over marketing of the project.
From 19th November 2015 on, 24 brand-new episodes with top-comedians will be available online.
“We are more than happy to restart the “Quatsch Comedy Club” with a modern design and a new distribution channel to reach out to the audience. For us as producer this new business model is quite fascinating”, says Riverside Entertainment-Producer Guido Thomsen.
“With Watch4 as a qualified partner, Riverside Entertainment is taking over production and distribution of the “Quatsch Comedy Club”. The innovative realization shows that creative producing in the future will not always be the conventional service production for a TV-Channel”, adds Michael Lehmann, Managing Director of Studio Hamburg Production Group.
