His brand of critically-acclaimed cabaret has won the hearts of people across the world, and now, finally, Australia will see Hans tour in a sparkling spectacular of a show.

Backed by a live band, Hans will present his brand of cabaret and dish the dirt on his stint on 'America's Got Talent'. . . Where he made it all the way to the finals. Not too shabby.

Hans has performed for everyone, from Prime Ministers to Princesses, and he's excited to bring the glittering blitzkrieg that is 'Hans: Like A German' down under.

He answers some questions about the show.

What is the 'Hans brand of cabaret'?
Glitter, feathers and accordions! Put simply, it's the greatest night of your life.

And why do you think it works so well with audiences?
I think the world has become a very heavy place of late and shows like ours are a way of escaping all the drama. It's a show where we can all laugh at the ridiculousness of everything in life (ourselves included, especially).

Tell us a little bit about the beginnings of Hans. How did he come about?
Honey, I came here from a wonderful place called Berlin in a country known as Germany. But, for some reason, Australia is so familiar to me. It almost feels like home. In fact, it almost feels like I have been here for 35 years and never anywhere else. Strange!

If you could go back in time and tell your child-self anything, what would it be?
Take up accounting!

What are you planning to bring to Australia with 'Like A German'?
A lot of laughs, a lot of fun, and a bit of an educational experience for all of us.

This is your first ever Australian tour. What took you so long?!
They say good things come to those who wait; buy a ticket and find out if that is true!

What is it about the art of cabaret that you love so much?
I love the removal of the fourth wall. Every show is always different which keeps it fresh for the audience (and for me as well). Sometimes the show is happening just as much in the crowd as it is on stage. . . I’m just better dressed of course.

What do you hope to instil in the minds of your audiences throughout this tour?
I just hope they have a night of escapism, big laughs and a bit of a dance.

Describe your show using a song lyric.
“Life is a mystery, and everyone must stand alone. I hear you call my name, and it feels like home.”
