· “Unique and hilarious perspective” (c) Der Spiegel
· “Did you write it yourself?” (c) Dima's mom

Originally from Ukraine, Dima moved to Berlin nine years ago and immediately started doing standup comedy in order not to lose his sense of humor while integrating into German society. After many unsuccessful years of trying to become German, Dima gave up on life, quit his day job as a software developer, and started doing comedy full-time, because laughter is the only way he can cope with everything that’s happening in the world right now.

🤣 Expect spicy jokes and ridiculous life stories about the state of the world, Berlin techno clubs, emigration, online dating, interracial relationships, shark attacks, and other significant subjects.

This is a preview, of the show, which Dima is taking to Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer - the biggest performance arts festival in the world.

"Very very funny! Highly recommended! I haven't laughed like this in a long time." © Sasha
"Dima is fantastic and he created a great atmosphere, it felt intimate, like we were amongst friends who knew each other already, so we could afford to laugh about more tabu topics" © Sebastian
"When we saw that only the front row seats were left, I knew we were in trouble 😀 but I’m so happy we ended up exactly there because Dima’s interaction with public is fire" © Luminita

🍉 Dima Watermelon • • @dimawatermelon

Dima is a professional funny person from the outskirts of Chornobyl, Ukraine. His unique comedic style is a mix of absurdity, social commentary and some allegedly inappropriate jokes. Self-proclaimed inventor of mumble comedy. And yes, Watermelon is indeed his real surname, simply translated into English.

Being naturally funny, Dima, only started doing standup after he moved to Berlin in 2015 to make sure not to lose his sense of humor while integrating into German society. Since then, Dima has performed in more than thirteen countries, including renowned locations such as the Gotham Comedy Club in New York, the Comedy Store London, and famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Living in three different countries and visiting over forty, Dima is no longer simply Ukrainian, but not quite European either. Stuck in this absurd cultural limbo, he finds laughter is his best coping mechanism.
