Slim Khezri Celebrates 25 Years Ago Tonight: 'Die Rudi Carrell Show' (7 Dec 1991, Saturday) - TV DEBUT

It Was 25 Years Ago (7 December 1991, Saturday) on 'Die Rudi Carrell Show'

Television Debut

snapshot-1-06-dec-16-16-34  

[taken from biography] "Slim's first notable television appearance was in Germany, on Saturday, December 7, 1991, on the popular hit show "Die Rudi Carrell Show", where he competed as one of five guests, impersonating famous singers, and hosted by Dutch entertainer, and TV icon Rudi Carrell. Out of approximately 700 applicants per episode, Slim was invited back to audition by WDR (West German Broadcasting, Cologne). After 3 attempts, Slim secured his casting, he was chosen from among 30 candidates. Rudi Carrell (thought by many to have discovered Slim Khezri) was very convinced, and believed in Slims talents, and made personally the phone call to confirm him for the show. Pre-taped the night before on Friday, December 6, 1991, Slim gave a stunning performance as Michael Jackson, singing the classic "Billie Jean" LIVE, captivating the audience with his dance moves and the iconic Moonwalk. The show was a huge hit, it drew the largest audience to date, at nearly 20 million viewers throughout Europe and beyond, which brought him instant fame. The show included a similar concept to "Star Search" or "Pop Idol" in America and brought many well-known German pop stars and actors to prominence, such as Alexis or Mark Keller. It also featured comedy sketches, and a 'Make-a-Wish' segment."

 As reported nearly 2 months ago in September, Slim Khezri has joined "da bad boyz" aka DBBZ, a series of short musically driven films on YouTube about the lives and momentary adventures of fictional armed security guards who take the initiative to creatively handle random daily situations. Like many people, they are vulnerable to mistakes and always try to do what's right. As security guards, da bad boyz always find another way to handle situations, especially never using their firearms when handling interesting obstacles. The series is created, directed and produced by Greg Yoder. Slim will be making his debut in the upcoming episode, titled "New Team, Same Tank!" (written by Greg Yoder, and Slim Khezri). Slim will be playing "Steif" (Stiff, german), a character Slim developed for the series.

SLIMK shares his story with MALA (Muslim American Leadership Alliance), by Zainab Zeb

Outspoken Musician, Actor, Michael Jackson-Impersonator Slim Khezri (aka SLIMK) shares his story with MALA (Muslim American Leadership Alliance) - by Zainab Zeb http://www.malanational.org/

"I was the first person in my immediate family who came to the United States, and first to be born outside of Tunisia. My son was the first, to be born in the United States."

 Personal stories can been a powerful catalyst for change – challenging stereotypes, building bridges, and inspiring action. In a country as diverse and complex as the United States, the identities of Muslim Americans remain layered and contested. We all have stories to tell: stories that deserve to be collected, conserved, and celebrated.

“Muslim American Journeys” is a MALA program produced in partnership with NPR’s StoryCorps and the Library of Congress, providing a platform for Americans of Muslim heritage to share their individual stories. By sharing a diverse range of narratives and experiences, “Journeys” aims to document oral history, inspire pride, and celebrate individuality. Every story recorded is officially archived in the Library of Congress, and outstanding stories are featured on National Public Radio.


Slim Kherzi (aka SLIMK), an artist and entrepreneur in California. A former Michael Jackson impersonator, he runs DoubaJen Records, an independent record and publishing company. He has acted in numerous TV shows, films and music videos, including a film on the Armenian Genocide, an Amnesty International ad on gay rights, and the music video for KSHMR that chronicles the life a would-be suicide bomber.

My family’s origins lie in Tunisia, going back at least six generations. My father immigrated to Switzerland, returned home to marry my mother, and then relocated to Germany. I was born and raised in Germany, but then moved to Tunisia for six years when I was 9. When I look back to great nostalgic times, I often think of the times in Germany rather than the ones in Tunisia. But I don’t regret the time I had there with my extended family, who made me who I am and taught me a great deal about myself. Thanks to that experience I appreciate the many points of view between the West and the Middle East.

17 years ago, I moved to the U.S. America is the kind of country that you either LOVE or really HATE. Some of my friends came and were disappointed, as they always tried to compare it to movies. I was realistic, and having lived in Germany and Tunisia prepared me that reality might be different. For me it was love at first sight, when I walked out the LAX airport doors. I knew right then that I’m going to grow old here. However I was a little surprised at how many Americans are a bit ignorant towards what goes on around the world outside the US.

My first jobs in LA were modeling and small bit parts in films. I had the classic struggling actor’s empty apartment, old black & white TV, mattress on the floor, and lots of ramen noodles. Look at me now – houses, family, cars, my own companies – all from scratch, from zero. I’ve come a LONG way, living the dream… the American dream. Lots of hard work, patience, focus, passion can get you anywhere. In Germany I felt that many are focused on what one can’t do, here in America I find that many are focused on what one can do. Just that mindset makes a great deal of a difference. Positive, optimistic, uplifting.

America to me is more than just a spot on the map, it’s an idea I admire, an amazing and unique one. Some Americans don’t understand it or realize how lucky they are.

I personally have never faced any racism, nor religious prejudice at any time or in country I’ve been to. I’ve seen it though, but never experienced it personally. I never had any trouble with American authorities. I’ve came in and out of the country many many times over the past 17 years. I do think it is a matter of attitude and how you present yourself. I don’t have a problem either if stopped by police and questioned. I have nothing to hide and would always treat the situation with respect. Works well for me. I brought with me to America a few traditions from the old country – for example certain holidays I observe, certain foods I cook that my parents and my grandmother taught me. Over time I have given up a few things that I consider to be outdated traditions or superstitious religious things. I outgrew these time, not because of pressure from anybody. You go through soul searching. I’ve always had an open mind, and I am a very curious creature that can’t stop learning. My goal is to learn about life by living it, not by trying to figure out a cryptic plan a ‘creator’ has in store for me. I had a very rich upbringing – not in terms of money, but culturally speaking. Growing up between two different cultures and multiple languages, Europe (Germany) and Africa (Tunisia), going through nine schools in both countries, and having all of the traditions and cultures at my disposal.

Slim K joins #BringBackOurGirls Campaign; with Michelle Obama, Maria Shriver, Quincy Jones, Gregory Porter, Leona Lewis, Cara Delevingne, Sean Combs "P Diddy", Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Christiane Amanpour, Malala Yousafzai, Rachel Zoe, Usher, The Rock, Russell Simmons, Ziggy Marley, Ellen DeGeneres.  

"Now the media is moving? When Boko Haram recently murdered over 60 young Christian boys at their school, burning some of them alive, there was silence from America's "entertainment" industry. Everyone is so afraid of being called out for Islamaphobia, I guess better late than never. Now over 250 girls kidnapped (over 3 weeks ago), this is an outrage and a tragedy, I'm absolutely sickened by this, the thought of the girls out there right now, terrified and being brainwashed, abused, and sold .. it's infuriating, and it kind of goes beyond understanding that somebody could do this in the name of a "religion". There is NO religion, this is a terror group that needs to be erased, immediate action is needed asap!!!!!" -- Slim Khezri (May 13, 2014)
