Short introduction

Comedy, acting, moderation or author, there seems to be hardly anything in the creative world that Mario Barth cannot do. As much as he is present on stage and on television, so little is known about his private life. He keeps his long-term relationship secret and little else is known about private life. He is an absolute professional in his field, making Mario Barth not just an entertainer, but a company.

Early life

Mario Barth was born on November 1st, 1972 in the Berlin district of Mariendorf. Barth has five siblings and enjoyed lessons in a Catholic private school in Neuköln. His youth was strongly Catholic, because not only was the private school run by the church, he was also an altar boy as a youth. Mario Barth has a partner named “Paula” and lives alternately in Düsseldorf and his hometown Berlin. According to their own statements, the two have been a couple for over 15 years, but his partner shies away from the public and has therefore never appeared in public with him.

After school, Barth began training as a communications electronics technician at Siemens. During his training, he focused on the area of telecommunications. It is not known whether or how long he has practiced this profession, because immediately after completing his training he began acting training, which he also completed. He became interested in comedy early on, because in addition to his training as an actor, he attended several comedy workshops. There he was also able to make important contacts with well-known personalities in the industry, who also brought him first short appearances in TV shows.


Mario Barth had his first short appearances on the TV programs “NightWash” and in the “Quatsch Comedy Club”. Since 2001 he has had his own stage program “Men are pigs, but women are too”. The stage program also marks the beginning of his rise as a comedian. Just two years later the program was released as a live DVD and immediately made it to third place on the album charts in Germany. Around 2 million DVDs were sold by his program, which earned him ten platinum awards.

Mario Barth not only builds and extends his career as a comedian, but focuses on different areas. He has appeared in several films as an actor, such as in 2006 in “7 Dwarfs – The Forest Is Not Enough” or in 2009 in “Men’s Issues”. He also works as a voice actor for various cartoons such as “Cars” or “Pets”. He also works in other areas and has written two humorous books, among others.

Career highlights

One of his career highlights was his first own TV show. Instead of only being part in the form of short appearances, the success of his stage program in 2003 gave him the show “no idea?”, Of which there was a second season in 2005.

One of the great moments of his career and also a world record was in 2008 when he broke the record for most visitors to a comedy show. The American comedian Chris Rock held this record until 2008. He filled a hall in London with 15,900 visitors.

Mario Barth clearly set this record in 2008 with 70,000 visitors at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. However, this didn’t seem to be enough for the all-rounder, because in 2014 he tried to set a new record. He wanted the world record for the largest audience in 24 hours. He managed this easily with 116,498 guests. At the same time, he was also able to claim the world record for the largest mobile stage.

Mario Barth not only has a funny side, but is also interested in serious topics, even if these are sometimes prepared in a comedic way. Since 2013 he has moderated the TV show “Mario Barth Reveals!”, Which deals with cases of tax wastage. Mario Barth received the Bavarian TV Award in 2015 for his investigative work.

Famous quotes

One of his most famous sayings is “Nothing rhymes with Uschi”. In 2010 he had this saying protected as a word mark. However, it turned out that the saying was coined by radio moderators as early as the 1990s, which is why the radio station where the moderators were working made an application for cancellation. However, this request never went through.

Some of his quotes also refer to his stage programs, which often deal with relationships between men and women. These include quotes such as: “Men are primitive but happy.” or “If my girlfriend buys shoes – I would be happy if she made such noises during sex.”

Success tips

One of his most important tips for a successful career is probably to stay true to yourself. He is a professional through and through, which is also confirmed by his employees, with whom he has been working for decades. In some cases, however, this professionalism also demands sacrifices. If something does not work as it should, a perfectionist can also become uncomfortable. Part of his perfectionism is also his environment, which he deliberately chooses. He specifically seeks contact with people who fit his way of thinking and his actions.
