Fresh off the plane from Hollywood after his powerhouse debut on America’s Got Talent 2018, Adelaide-based superstar Hans (pictured) has signed an exclusive worldwide management deal with Watercooler Talent.
This boy wonder via Berlin won the hearts of 16 million Americans with his cheeky humour and electrifying song and dance routines on the juggernaut American talent series. Hans was much loved amongst judges Mel B, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and host Tyra Banks. As Hans puts it, “Darlings, I went there to make America glitter again. It was calling and I answered!”
Hans is the creation of Adelaide-born Matt Gilbertson, himself an accomplished journalist who has worked in print, radio and television. Over the past 10 years Hans has performed at comedy and cabaret festivals in Australia and the UK. In 2017 Hans won the Edinburgh Fringe Festival award for Best Cabaret, and has been the winner of several Adelaide Fringe Festival awards over the years.
The self-proclaimed sex symbol, accordionist, homewrecker and Madonna fan is a true international superstar, and now Hans is one of Australia’s most successful cabaret artists.
David Wilson, managing partner at Watercooler Talent, said, “Hans fills every room he walks into with pure joy… and a lot of sequins. We are so excited to be part of his fabulous world and see a big global appetite for cut-through artists like Hans.”
On signing with Watercooler Talent, Hans said, “Honey, planning world domination is not an easy task and sometimes even superstars need a little help along the way! That’s why I’m so excited to be represented by David Wilson and Andrew Gaul at Watercooler. I can’t wait to bring my shows to even more people and get this world laughing again!”
