Biography

Christian Tramitz was born in Munich on July 25th 1955. He first studied violin at the Munich music conservatory, before enrolling in art history, philosophy and theatre at Munich University. After his graduation, he took acting classes with Ruth von Zerberoi and got his first engagement at the Ingolstadt theatre. Following numerous theatre tours, he became an ensemble member at the Düsseldorfer Kammerspiele.

In the 1980s, he started working in film as a voice talent for dubbed versions. To this day, he has lent his voice to artists like John Cusack, Jackie Chan, Ben Stiller and Matt Dillon.

After acting in a few supporting roles in German TV programmes, Tramitz became popular as one of leads in Michael "Bully" Herbig's award-winning TV comedy series "Bullyparade" (1997-2002). His had his breakthrough as the lone ranger in Herbig's western spoof "Der Schuh des Manitu" ("Manitou's Shoe"), which went on to become one of the highest-grossing films in German film history, won a slew of awards and started a wave of screen comedies – which also benefited Tramitz' movie career: He had parts in successful comedies like "(T)Raumschiff Surprise – Periode 1" ("Dreamship Surprise - Period 1"), "7 Zwerge – Männer allein im Wald" ("7 Dwarves") and "Neues vom Wixxer".

In 2004, Tramitz got his own TV show "Tramitz & Friends". Despite his ongoing work in the genre, for instance in the history spoof "Tell" (2006/07), Tramitz also started to appear in more dramatic fare: He starred in Michael Glawogger's drama "Das Vaterspiel" ("Kill Daddy Good Night", 2007-09), in "Falco - Verdammt, wir leben noch!" (2007/08), a biopic on the late pop star Falco and as the titular hero of "Jerry Cotton" (2009/10), a screen adaptation of the eponymous pulp novels.

Tramitz was the male lead in the comedy "3faltig" (DE/AT 2010). After guest-starring roles in the TV series "Notruf Hafenkante" and "Die Gipfelzipfler", he became one of the leads in the TV series "Hubert und Staller". His other TV credits include "Stankowskis Millionen" (2011, TV) and "Hansi und Hubsi" (2012, TV).

On the big screen, Tramitz appeared in the tragicomedy "Sushi in Suhl" (2012) and the children's film "V8 – Du willst der Beste sein" ("V8 – Start Your Engines", 2013). He played the sidekick of Anke Engelke's ghost hunter in "Gespensterjäger" ("Ghosthunters – On Icy Trails", 2015) and the father of a teenage daughter in the coming-of-age movie "Beautiful Girl" (AT 2015). In 2015, he joined the cast of the TV variety show "3. Stock links: Die Kabarett-WG".

2017 saw the release of the feature film "Bullyparade - Der Film" ("Bullyparade – The Movie"), for which Michael Herbig, Rick Kavanian and Christian Tramitz revisited their most iconic characters from the popular TV show.

Moreover, Christian Tramitz continues to be in high demand as a voice talent for TV and film dubbing: Since 2008, he has been voicing the character Sideshow Bob in the German dubbed version of "The Simpsons", and he also voiced characters in the German dubbed versions of "Toy Story 3" (US 2010) and "Finding Dory" (US 2016).
