Oliver Pocher and his father Gerhard are in Great Britain for a TV production. They meet Prince Charles’ former butler. Olli deliberately misbehaves and puts everyone’s patience to the test.
London – Oliver Pocher (44) can currently be seen on TV together with his father Gerhard “Gerd” (72). In RTL’s “Pocher und Papa auf Reisen” the two go to Great Britain, including a visit to Grant Harrold (44), the former butler of Prince Charles (73). But he needed more than just a pinch of patience for the younger Pocher – the son’s behavior also made Gerd despair.
Oliver Pocher puts the patience of butler and father to the test
While father Pocher skilfully served plates under the strict butler eyes and also cut a good figure at “Tea Time” with a top hat and white gloves, Olli made quite a negative impression. And that, obviously, consciously. He touched the food and broke it apart instead of cutting it, peeked under the table while it was being served, or belted out “Take That” songs.
“It’s important that I have fun – and maybe one or the other who sees it, too,” says Oliver Pocher’s attitude. His father was visibly uncomfortable with this behavior. “I would have wished he had behaved a bit more mannerly,” says Gerd Pocher to the RTL cameras. And butler Harrold is also stunned: “In 25 years I’ve never seen anything like it,” he says.
Too much of a good thing: Pocher-Papa finds his son “embarrassing”
Father Pocher warns, but remains unsuccessful. Finally he says resignedly: “I’m so sad that I have to see this”. The label expert then adds, now concentrating on the Pocher father who is willing to learn: “Ignore that”. Gerhard seems a little disappointed: “You can also be funny and funny without being embarrassing – and Olli can do that. He can do that, but in my opinion he doesn’t do it enough.”
In the television show, Oliver and Gerd Pocher also made fun of Boris Becker, who is in prison. “I’ll see Boris again,” said Oliver Pocher amused when he lost a few bills in the horse race. Sources used: Pocher and Papa on trips/RTL/RTL+/Season 2, Episode 1
