Put that razor away, Van Gogh.
You’ll be glad you didn’t cut off your ear after listening to our show about art. Helping us paint this beautiful picture, we have (returning guest!) comedian Georg Kammerer, independent curator and art expert Max Schreier, and musical guest James & Black! Together, we sculpt a show about second-wave elephant art, paint chips, the Berlin Art School, robot-generated videos, Cornelius Gurlitt‘s unopened mail, getting arrested by the German police, clip art, and a refrigerator full of semen. Plus, the amazing “guerilla soul” of James & Black!
This show is sponsored by our friends at Natty’s Naturals*, your source for all-natural and vegan paints.
And, of course, piffle! is on iTunes! Please subscribe and leave us a rating and/or review!

James & Black create a hybrid of US Southern Soul and classic hip-hop, merging flavors of New Orleans and Texas with a heavy dose of Jay Dee/RZA/Tribe Called Quest tinged hip-hop. The result has been dubbed Guerrilla Soul, referring to the “anyplace/anytime” attitude they have towards music. Their first studio album,”How Long Is Now”, is set to be released this spring!
Georg Kammerer is a Berlin-based comedian, filmmaker, writer and performing artist. Frustrated with the state of German comedy he found a new home in Berlin’s English comedy underground, where he has been performing, hosting and headlining shows for the past four years. Georg’s comedy can be best described as a peculiar mix of brutally honest storytelling, angry social commentary and general silliness. He is a graduate of the German Film and Television Academy Berlin and is currently presenting his one hour solo show „Unjustified Confidence”.
Max Schreier was born in 1985 in New York City. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he studied music & philosophy. After living and working in New York City for several years, he moved to Berlin where he is now an independent curator and works for the website Artsy.
