Ahne, born in Berlin in 1968, numbers among the most popular authors on the open reading scene. He has been reading at the »Reformbühne Heim & Welt« since 1995 and with the »Surf Poets« since 1996. His absurd observations of everyday life thrive on playing with listener and reader expectations and have been published in the collections »Wie ich einmal die Welt rettete« (2001) and »Ich fang nochmal von vorne an« (2003). His »Zwiegespräche mit Gott«, known through the »Show Royal« on Radio Eins, came out this year as both a book and a CD.
