As early as 1929 Günther Neumann worked as a cabaret artist for the "Kabarett der Komiker" and in 1930 for "Die Katakombe". During the blockade of Berlin in 1948 he started his famous radio cabaret program "Die Insulaner". This very popular program was heard in East as well as West Berlin until 1962.
Neumann was also involved in movies and wrote books like "Ich was Hitlers Schnurrbart" (1949). He translated the American musical "Kiss me Kate" to German. He was married to Tatjana Sais, who performed many of his songs. In 1960 he received the Kunstpreis der Stadt Berlin.
