In 2011 the movie was adapted into Thomas Hermanns with the help of Hape Kerkeling himself. The songs were written by Hape Kerkeling's friend Achim Hagemann and also by Thomas Zaufke. It had premiere at the "Capitol Theater" in Düsseldorf, directed by Alex Balga. Dirk Bach, who was playing Hardy Loppmann (Schlöntzke's sketch partner) in the original movie, was play Heinz Wäscher for a long time. After his death in 2012 different actors were playing the role including Achim Mentzel and Thomas Hermanns himself. Until now the musical is still on the stage, only with a partly different cast in different cities over the years. Besides the original songs the musical also features the movie's theme song "Witzigkeit Kennt Keine Grenzen" and also Hape Kerkeling's hit "Das Ganze Leben Ist Ein Quiz" from 1992 (an unofficial cover version of the Italian hit "Sì, la vita è tutta un quiz" from 1988, originally performed by Renzo Arbore). Additionaly short musical numbers from the movie, like "Biene Maja", "Mein Vati hat drei grunzende Schweine" or the Uschi-Blum-song was also added into the musical just like the "Eurovision Theme" and the theme of the popular show 'tt1385819', which has a similar concept as "Witzischkeit kennt keine Grenzen".

The opening credits have animated effects, like some names are put on the screen or kicked away with furry paws and other credits flood away. See more »
Though mainly using very simply, almost primitive jokes, somehow they managed to make the film really funny. This is probably due to Hape Kerkeling's appearance, because he already seems funny when he says just anything.
