Die lustigste Orchester der Welt. Die Komödie von Rainer Hersch. Rainer schreibt und performed seine eigenen Shows und dies weltweit von Kanada zur Karibik, über Australien und Süd Afrika. Sein Repertoire reicht von solo stand-up zu seiner eigenen berüchtigten 8-Mann Band oder einem voll ausgewachsenen Symphonie Orchester (das er sich zeitweise ausleiht). Er schreibt eine nicht so ernsthafte Kolumne für das BBC Music Magazin, war in zahlreichen BBC TV Serien and hat mehrere Radio Sendungen geschrieben und produziert.
