Five years ago, the last edition of the Harald Schmidt Show was broadcast. Since then, Schmidt, 61, is experience in television, especially in his role as cruise Director Oskar schifferle in the ZDF dream ship. Next Tuesday and Wednesday, he will be on the side of Marcel Reif and Roman Kilchsperger for the semi-finals of the football Champions League in tele-club-Studio.
Mr Schmidt, at last, you have to moderate once again in the television. And where do you do that? In Switzerland. And still behind a paywall!
Yes, well. I am madly in Zurich. And the payment barrier is a subject that you know as an employee of a newspaper enough, I suppose. Otherwise you don't get the theme in the handle. And on the other, I think it's of course great to be in a show with Marcel Reif.
What do you like about Zurich?
I know Zurich is not really. I'm only in my cliché-Zurich. There is the lake. Since there is cleanliness. There is the Discreteness of the residents. And if I go for a walk, I find myself asking the question: Is this a long-established Zurich? A Newly-Zurich from Moscow? Or a Fifa functionary, is arrested the next Morning in the hotel room next to me?
Where did we catch you on the phone?
I am turning on the way to the next dream ship. In Miami on Board, in Halifax back down. But, so there are no misunderstandings: I am on Tuesday, neither Moderator and commentator. I sit there as a Fan. I'm just none, of the says: Today we play with a five-fold six and double-nine.
if You want to experience the cabaret Schmidt. The fact that you play at all during the dream boat, also a cabaret.
The stop is seen. In the process, I just do! So, I'm going on the dream ship. Nice Trip! I just got back from Panama City for the first Film. Fantastic Movie. Fantastic Trip. So. Now I drive from Miami via New York to Halifax. Great Trip! Then someone calls me and offers: Champions League semi-final. Two games with Marcel Reif. In Zurich, Switzerland. My motto is: the location is in front of the content. It has to happen something really Insane, so I'm going to Berlin.
Mature an expert of football. And in the position to comment on a game with irony. Is there ever a place for your humor level?
Humor is also tops in the statement: I agree with Marcel Reif completely. I see this often in the broadcasts on Sky with Michael Ballack and Lothar Matthäus. As is often said: Löötar has äbbsolut right. The other day Boris Becker was as an expert. The has requested just that, again, more fists flying at the football. You should not make the mistake, as a super expert. I sit there as a Fan, you find it perfectly fine, if a Sheikh is spending hundreds of millions for a player. The main thing, I see a great game.
In the semifinals of the big figures in Pep Guardiola, with Manchester City and Uli Hoeness from FC Bayern missing. Would be the what have been for the cabaret Schmidt?
The two characters are a lot to be thankful for. The are more something for ZDF-Comedy. It is true, indeed, to discover new people. I find, for example, always the assistant coach, fantastic, which, when in the 87. Minute a new player comes in, the iPad get, to give the player instructions on what to do. And then into the field screaming: From now on, elfer chain! I know Comedy formats that have parodies about the coach Giovanni Trapattoni in the Repertoire.
Where Trapattoni has parodied himself.
Since you must have no illusions: If they say on a Comedy stage today: What! Allow! Struuuuunz!? Then 30 percent of the current audience for a Mega-Gag.
you have moderated years ago at the Olympics with Waldemar Hartmann. Irritates you the performance sport?
Generally speaking, sports, and Humor do not work together. The sports fan is absolutely seriously and don't want to hear any jokes about his club or anything else. The Fan really wants to hang with him in tears in the fence in relegation danger. However, I am a huge fan of performance sports. You meet at the Olympics. The body of these people. The Motion Sequences. Has to do with Amateur sport. That's why I'm also for a ban of Amateur sports. For aesthetic reasons. I'm waiting for the politician with the Agenda in the election campaign. The could allow only Robert Habeck. All the other one would take offense to that. In Habeck, one would think: Oh, Right, the CO?-Emissions of Amateur athletes we had not taken previously even aware of! The athletes that have impressed me the most were the triathlete Jan Frodeno and the German hockey men after winning the gold medal.
hockey players are not smart people, because, you know, whether or not of a secretly studying electrical engineering.
Clearly, Hockey is different than the four-man Bob. So nothing against the four-man Bob. But since it is only the tax man actually speaks. The brakeman is allowed to say two sentences. And the two in the middle are just for weight. My impression was!
Have you played some football?
I would like. But you have not chosen me on the football pitch. Even though I had a leather ball. The have outside, the taken and said: You stay.
early bullying in your life?
An extreme humiliation that has led to an incredible show-business career. Only the hatred of the other, the without a games, a to go in the evening for evening on the stage.
This was a while ago but. How to keep you actually on the market?
In General, it is enough to lie on the Couch and wait for what's to come for offers. The always start with: I know, they do nothing. And: As you can imagine, we have no money.
And then the conversation is over?
no, depends on 80 percent of my decision really matter where it takes place. Even better, the wording is: of Course, we are not able to pay your usual fee. Without knowing what my Gage is. I once said: For 80'000 Euro the day you can expect from me that I hang myself. It was silently taken note of. So I'm going to screw the number of the next Time even higher. Mainly I've been told anyway, in the circle of colleagues Gegrummel trigger. (Editorial Tamedia)
