Hamburg (dpa) - The corona pandemic and the associated forced break has affected the travesty artist and actress Lilo Wanders.

«Corona burdens me.

Outwardly I have aged very much in these six months, "said Lilo Wanders of the German Press Agency in Hamburg.

Above all, the imponderability makes her "crazy".

Wanders has not had any major appearances since mid-March due to corona.

A theater performance lasting several weeks in Braunschweig and a tour were therefore canceled.

“That means that around two thirds of my annual income has been lost.

It's all postponed to 2021.

But that's bitter. "

Wanders, alias Ernie Reinhardt, hardly used the time for projects that had been postponed for a long time.

«Corona makes you lazy.

It's all so exhausting.

One thing a day and I'm done. "

In return, Wanders can now get involved more in its own garden in the Altes Land.

"In the Corona times I learned to drive the tractor and mow the lawn myself."

The rattling is definitely fun.

“It's contemplative.

You can think a lot there. "

Reinhardt, who became known as Lilo Wanders through the Schmidt Theater's “Midnight Show” on the Reeperbahn and through the Vox program “Wa (h) re Liebe”, will celebrate his 65th birthday on September 22nd.
