Klaas Heufer-Umlauf (September 22, 1983 ) is a German television host, actor and singer. He is mainly known for his comedic work as part of the comedy duo Joko & Klaas (the other member is Joachim "Joko" Winterscheidt). Together with Winterscheidt Heufer-Umlauf hosts the TV-show Circus HalliGalli.
Heufer-Umlauf is a Störungsmelder (Fault detector) of Gesicht Zeigen! Für ein weltoffenes Deutschland e.V. (Show your face – for a cosmopolitan Germany). The Fault detectors go to classrooms and talk about different subjects, such as right-wing music and symbols, Pegida, asylumseekers and how to combat online racism.
Heufer-Umlauf, together with Joko Winterscheidt, made a video called "Das wird man wohl noch sagen dürfen #mundaufmachen" (Surely you're still allowed to say this #Openyourmouth - Note: This is a commonly used expression in Germany to signal annoyance against political correctness). In this video the duo insult people who express their anger and concerns about the refugee crisis in Europe (often in a crude manner) by calling them cowards and stupid for attacking the weakest people in society.
