Hans is a German singer, dancer, accordion player and entertainer, who has made a splash on America’s Got Talent 2018. According to ABC Net, Hans’ real name is Matt Gilbertson and he is a self-proclaimed “international superstar, sex symbol, accordionist, home wrecker, Madonna fan”. And, after receiving rave reviews from viewers on social media, Hans gushed on Facebook that, “I’m thrilled with the reaction. I’m just here to give the world a show! I can say expect so much more than you’ve already seen. You think you know what I’m all about? Think again! This will be the greatest show on Earth!”

While fans can watch Hans perform on AGT, he will also be putting on his show “Like A German” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The description of Hans’ show reads, “International superstar Hans, the boy wonder of Berlin, serves up an all-singing, all-tap dancing, accordion-pumping, glittering blitzkrieg of cabaret backed by his three-piece band, The Ungrateful Bastards! With more sparkle than a Studio 54 mirrorball and more feathers than a battery hen farm, hilarious Hans will have you slapping your thighs so hard, you’ll think it’s Oktoberfest. He’s a little Marlene, a little Madonna. A little Minogue, a little … Merkel. Hans is the ultimate showboy … In a pair of showgirl hot pants. ‘Hans down one of the most hilarious nights’.”
