Ottfried Fischer and his Simone have canceled the planned church wedding. “The flow is out,” explains the cabaret artist.

Ottfried Fischer (69) and his Simone have been married since 2020. A church wedding was also planned after the celebration in Passau, Lower Bavaria. But there won’t be, like the cabaret artist and actor now in an interview with “t-online” approved.

“Because of Corona, we had to postpone it so often that the flow is out now. Celebrating the church wedding is no longer as necessary as it was then. Besides, I can’t stand this backdrop between tulle and tears,” said Fischer . And he points to a scheduling problem: “And now we have so many round birthdays coming up, I don’t know where we should still accommodate the wedding.” Ottfried Fischer himself will be celebrating his 70th birthday on November 7th next year.

Ottfried Fischer is not a “believing person”

When it comes to church weddings, of course, there is also the question of faith. Is Fischer a Catholic and a believer? “I’m a member of an ‘ideological Catholic traditional costume association’. I can’t leave because I’ve felt a part of it from an early age. So much for Catholicism,” he jokes at first.

Then he adds: “But I’m not a believer. However, I’m slowly getting to an age where I think about whether faith can’t be seen as an investment for hope.”
