Biography

Rocko Schamoni (neé: Tobias Albrecht) was born in Lütjenburg on May 8 1966. At the age of 18, he moved to Hamburg and enrolled as a student at the HfBK art academy. At the same time, he began his music career, which also included early tours with the bands "Goldene Zitronen" and "Toten Hosen". Over the years, he released more than 20 albums and performed more than 1000 live shows. Moreover, he appeared in several feature films and stage productions.

Rocko Schamoni is proprietor of the Hamburg-based club "Golden Pudel Klub", and since the late 1990s, he works alongside Jacques Palminger and Heinz Strunk in the multimedia comedy ensemble "Studio Braun". In 2000, he published his first novel "Risiko des Ruhms", his other written works include "Dorfpunks" (2004) and "Sternstunden der Bedeutungslosigkeit" (2007). After "Dorfpunks" was already successfully adapted by Studio Braun for a stage production at the renowned Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, director Lars Jessen brought the autobiographical story to the screen.

After a cameo in Torsten Stegmann's comedy "Helgoland", Schamoni had his first major film role in the 2012 mockumentary "Fraktus": Alongside his Studio Braun partners Palminger and Strunk, he plays the member of the titular, defunct electronic pop outfit, which is reunited for a comeback by an ambitious producer.
