In the sketch comedy show “Kroymann: Schöne Bescherung” (episode 18), actress Maren Kroymann (73) takes on Christmas classics such as “The Little Lord” (1980) this year. As the first pictures from the program show, the little guy has grown up in the meantime… Kroymann also visits the elf headquarters with an unexpected outcome. For Santa Klaus Jr., Christmas is tough business. And if Mary of Nazareth, mother of Jesus, were to tell the biblical Christmas story from her point of view today, how would that sound?

Kroymann leads through Christmas Eve again with comedy specialist Annette Frier (48). This time these colleagues can be seen in the different sketches: Mark Waschke (50), Diana Amft (47), Lea van Acken (23), Laura Osswald (40), Nina Kunzendorf (51), Sebastian Schwarz (38) , Katharina Hirschberg (21), David Ali Rashed (20), Altine Emini (28), Matthias Weidenhöfer (37) and many more.
