Steife Brise @ Hamburg, Germany
Youssef is a card shark, a free thinker, and a computer nerd. This French Hamburger has been improvising for 20 years and has been a member of the Steife Brise since 2011. Although he started out by writing gags and concepts for radio and television, he soon realized that he prefers stepping onto the stage and performing his ideas himself – in Hamburg and all over Germany.
His style of playing has been influenced by his background in stand-up comedy and by the French improviser, Philippe Saïd. Youssef improvises in German, English, and French, and has adopted improvisation as a way of life.
