Starting next year, Barbara Schöneberger will host the ARD show “Do You Understand the Fun?” After 32 years, the show will be performed by a woman again in the future, announced Südwestrundfunk (SWR). Schönberger’s first show as a host is expected to air on April 2, 2022.
SWR Director Clemens Bratzler explained, “Barbara Schönberger is quick-witted, funny, and natural – and fits right in with ‘Do you get the fun?'” With her, the show should develop further. The 47-year-old spoke of her “childhood dream” coming true. “Even when I was a little girl I hung in front of the TV and thought Paola and Kurt Felix were adorable,” she explained, looking at a pair original brokers.
Schönberger succeeds Guido Kantz as supervisor of Do You Understand the Fun? He announced in June that he would host the show for the last time in December. He has hosted the show since April 2010. According to SWR, he is the longest-serving show host. Kantz has also directed more programs than format creator Kurt Felix. As the first and to date only woman, Paula Felix ran the Saturday Evening Show alongside her husband between 1983 and 1990.
