He married his wife Barbara in 1971. They had one daughter, Janina who works as a stuntwoman in Canada. Karl Dall had two sisters and a brother. He lived in Hamburg-Eppendorf. Career Karl Dall left school after the 10th grade and accomplished an apprenticeship as a typesetter in a print shop in the town of Leer, East Frisia. Together with Ingo Insterburg, Jürgen Barz and Peter Ehlebracht he founded in 1967 the comedy group Insterburg & Co. [de] of which he was a member until it ceased to exist in the 1970s. Moreover, he created the TV show Musikladen for Radio Bremen and had since then worked for television broadcasters. From 1983 until 1990 he used to appear in the hidden camera comedy show Verstehen Sie Spaß?, playing for example a chaotic film presenter or a telephone prankster. In the German radio broadcast of Radio Luxemburg (RTL) he presented his own comedy show and was also among the first TV-presenters of television channel RTLplus. There he had his own talkshow named Dall-As which was aired from 19 January 1985 until the end of 1991. The concept was to irritate and provoke the guests. On 4 January 1992 he continued this show at the rivalling television channel Sat.1 as Jux und Dallerei. From 1991 until 1993 he presented the game show Koffer Hoffer on television channel Tele 5. In this show lost luggage, of which the owner could not be identified anymore, was auctioned to the candidates. Later he was member of the initial ensemble of the comedy show 7 Tage, 7 Köpfe. The spontaneous Karl Dall left the show after a few years due to differences of opinion with Rudi Carrell who always scheduled his shows meticulously. In September 2006 his autobiography titled Auge zu und durch (Eye shut and through) was published. Dall died on 23 November 2020, having suffered a stroke twelve days earlier.[1] Filmography 1963: Apache Gold 1964: Freddy in the Wild West 1967: Hotel Clausewitz 1968: Quartett im Bett [de] 1969: Charley's Uncle 1970: Student of the Bedroom 1970: Hänsel und Gretel verliefen sich im Wald 1974: Chapeau Claque [de] 1980: Panic Time 1983: Gib Gas – Ich will Spass 1983: Das verrückte Strandhotel [de] a.k.a.
