Luke Mockridge: "Shitstorm really got me down"

In the Sat.1 show "Germany's Best Comedians", Luke Mockridge (33) returned to the TV stage on Wednesday evening (January 4). After jokes about the Corona crisis, Whatsapp groups or forgotten passwords, the 33-year-old went into his personal situation.

In September 2021, a former partner of Mockridge made allegations against him. He had rejected the allegations, and the Cologne public prosecutor's office discontinued proceedings. Now the comedian is venturing back into the spotlight.

In "The best comedians in Germany" he said, among other things: "It's a wonderful feeling to be back on stage here" - and added: "A year ago I wouldn't have thought that I'd be on stage again. " The shit storm "was a blatant thing. That really got me down," said the comedian. "It happens like this, and you watch your whole world suddenly go up in flames. (...)"

Luke Mockridge's appearance also provoked criticism on social media. Sat.1 had already shown his program "A Way Back to Luckyland" in December. An initially withdrawn episode of the ZDF "Traumschiff", in which Luke Mockridge has a guest appearance, was also broadcast in December.
