Sammy Drechsel - Biography

Sammy Drechsel (25 April 1925 in Berlin – 19 January 1986 in Munich), born Karl-Heinz Kamke, was a German political comedian, journalist and sports reporter. In 1956, together with Dieter Hildebrandt, he created the "Münchner Lach- und Schießgesellschaft", one of Germany's most successful and influential sites of political cabaret, for which he was producer and director up to his death. From 1950 to his death he also worked as a sports reporter for the Bavarian "Bayrischer Rundfunk". He also became well known for his 1955 book "Elf Freunde müsst ihr sein" ("You Ought to be Eleven Friends"), which targeted an adolescent audience. (The book has also become available as an audiobook, produced by his long-time friend Hildebrandt.) One of Drechsel's last appearances was in the German TV series "Kir Royal", directed by Helmut Dietl, which was completed shortly before his death.
