As announced by William Cohn’s management, the speaker has died at the age of 65. The entertainer’s death was sudden and surprising.

William Cohn – actor, voice actor and popular sidekick of Jan Böhmermann (41) – died suddenly and unexpectedly in Basel at the age of 65. Cohn’s management confirmed the death to “t-online”. “Believe me, we are stunned too. He leaves a big void. With his family, his closest friends. In the local media landscape.”

Nothing is known about the circumstances of death. In the TV landscape, for example, he had many loyal fans as a sidekick for Jan Böhmermann in “Neo Magazin Royale”. Cohn’s manager Gerd Fischer remembers the 65-year-old with moving words: “However, his showpiece throughout his artistic life remained the role of the scheming arms dealer Kaspar in the hit musical ‘Ludwig²’. Since the world premiere in Füssen’s Festspielhaus in 2005, he has given the role character, voice and volume in well over 600 shows. Now he has left the stage that meant so much to him forever.”
