The cabaret artist and actress Maren Kroymann would like to play more serious roles on television. “I’m being very much recognized as a comedic person right now – I’m really happy about that. But I don’t want that to make people say, oh, that’s the funny one, you can only take it when it comes to punch lines.” , said the 73-year-old of the German Press Agency in Cologne. “I would also like to play dramatic roles – as I have already done.”

Kroymann has acted in many successful films and series. She became known to a large audience at the end of the 1980s as the pastor’s wife in “Oh Gott, Herr Pfarrer” (ARD). Later she got her own satirical program “Nachtschwester Kroymann” (ARD). With her sketch comedy show “Kroymann” (ARD) she won several awards.

It was announced on Tuesday that Kroymann will also receive the special honor of the German Adult Education Association (DVV) as part of the Grimme Prize this year. The award is given to personalities who have made outstanding contributions to television.
