In 1987 he appeared as a cabarettist for the first time and starting in 1992, he worked as a professional cabarettist; he arranged his first solo stage program. He became famous for his numerous television appearances in the past few years appearing in Quatsch Comedy club and 7 Tage -- 7 Koepfe (lit. 7 days -- 7 heads). Today, he lives in Ratingen. Nuhr is regarded as a mediator between classical comedy and new Stand-up comedy.
In his work, he often caricatures the typical German know-it-all. A typical example is his Standardspruch that he uses on nearly every appearance and which is frequently quoted in web forum|forums and Newsgroup|Newsgroup due to its very provocative nature is, "Wenn man keine Ahnung hat: Einfach mal Fresse halten," which translates to, "If you don't have a clue: just keep your mouth shut." ==Awards== *Deutscher Kleinkunstpreis (1998) *Bayerischer Kabarettpreis (Bavarian Cabaret Awards) (2000) *Morenhovener Lupe (2000) *Deutscher Comedy-Preis: Bester Liveact (German Comedy-Prize: best Live Act) (2003) ==CD albums== *Nuhr am Noergeln, lit.
