Oliver Pocher: He comments on Schweiger and Naidoo

In the latest episode of "The Pochers! Freshly Recycled" (exclusively on Podimo), comedian Oliver Pocher (46) addresses two topics that have been keeping him busy in the past few days. As is well known, Pocher brought Xavier Naidoo (52) onto the stage at his “Liebeskasper” tour in Saarbrücken on April 20th. Just a few days later, Til Schweiger (60) insulted the comedian. Reason enough for Pocher to take a look at the events with podcast partner Alessandra Meyer-Wölden (41).

"Til Schweiger thinks you're shit," Pocher's ex-wife begins the conversation about the actor and director, who said in an interview with the weekly newspaper "Die Zeit" that he despised Pocher. The man who was so scolded then describes that he has “no problem at all with Til Schweiger” and is definitely someone who can laugh at himself, which seems to refute a central accusation made by the “Manta Manta - Second Part” director.

The situation becomes more complicated with singer Xavier Naidoo, who, as is well known, caused outrage with crude conspiracy stories before publicly apologizing for his gaffes. Pocher and interview partner Sandy Meyer-Wölden first remember their own wedding in 2010, at which Naidoo performed and sang.

The pair's deep admiration for the artist and singer Naidoo is clearly expressed, whose music is "untouchable," according to Sandy Meyer-Wölden. But in the podcast show, the ex-spouses clearly distance themselves from Naidoo's conspiracy stories expressed in the past. Pocher also talks about a “very disturbing phase” for the singer.

However, the singer's apology for previous statements, expressed in 2022, was obviously better received by Oliver Pocher than by the general German public. The comedian said he found the video "sincere, but that's the nice thing these days anyway, even when people apologize, they say: 'He apologized, but yeah, it doesn't matter.'"

Pocher, on the other hand, would have accepted Naidoo's apology and, for this reason, would have given him a platform again. According to TV star Sandy Meyer-Wölden, that's exactly what TV star Sandy Meyer-Wölden wouldn't have done if he had thought that Naidoo "still stood for these things that he threw into the room."

At the end of the podcast program, Oliver Pocher himself raises the question originally raised by the "Bild" newspaper as to who would have benefited more from Naidoo's appearance on the "Liebeskasper" stage in Saarbrücken - himself or the singer. The comedian sums up: "It doesn't matter to me now because I can do whatever I want, people love or hate me, and then it's now more or less a thing that you think is good or bad."
