Just recently, Miro Nontschew celebrated his TV comeback. He was part of Bully Herbig’s successful concept “LOL: Last One Laughing” and was featured in the first season of the format. Now the former star from “RTL Saturday Night” is dead. “We confirm the death of our friend and family member. The family asks for consideration in this difficult time,” said his manager and close friend Bertram Riedel to “Bild”.

Accordingly, the comedian died last week at the age of only 52. The cause of death remains unclear for the time being. Nontschew was also in the new season of the Amazon format “LOL”. The shooting has already been completed. The new episodes should be broadcast in spring 2022.

He made his TV debut at the age of 24

Mirco Nontschew was born in East Berlin in 1969. He was first seen on television in 1993. In the entertainment show “RTL Saturday Night”, the then 24-year-old stood out for his special ability to imitate everyday noises and tones with his mouth.

His passion for beatboxing is therefore also an obvious one. Although Nontschew trained as a mechanic at the request of his parents, he joined the group Downtown Lyrics as a beatboxer and breakdancer in 1989 and competed with them in a rap contest.

When Nontschew left his homeland and went to West Germany, Hugo Egon Balder quickly became aware of the exceptional talent on RTL and helped him get on television.

The comedian was not only known through the RTL show, he also had a number of appearances in other comedy formats. For example, he was also involved in “The Brazen Three”, “Welcome to Mario Barth” or in Otto’s film “7 Dwarfs – Men Alone in the Forest”. But Nontschew also tried his hand at the serious genre. In 1996 he was seen in the “Tatort: ​​Whoever Doesn’t Be Silent Must Die” from Dresden.
