Foreign Friday: Die Harald Schmidt Show

Every Friday, I post a clip from a country other than the United States.

This week we visit Germany. Die Harald Schmidt Show is a talk show strongly influenced by David Letterman and Conan O’Brien. Harald Schmidt is often called the “German David Letterman” to the point that Letterman once referred to him as “the guy in Germany who does my show.” Schmidt’s original set was almost an exact replica of the set that Letterman had during his Late Night days.

While the following clip only has a few subtitles, it is pretty easy to understand what is going on. Enjoy this look at German television.
