Tobias Maasland ist cast member of two Hamburg-based improv groups:

He also does improvised Beatbox for those mentioned and other groups. If you are interested in doing a workshop on this with Tobias – mail me (see address here).

When not on stage for music, voice acting and improv, he is a public speaker on communication, crisis management and out-of-the-box-thinking.


For all german-speaking visitors you should also check out the brand-new monthly (german) podcast Achim und Tobi mit ohne Ahnung. Also available on Spotify and iTunes.
