Entertainer. Born in Riga, Germany, he studied to be a professional pianist and served as piano player in the marine orchestra after being drafted during World War II. After the war, he took a job at a northwest German public radio station and began his career as an entertainer with an affinity for comical puns and poems. He soon became popular public figure, performing as a comedian or a mime, on stages and in films all over Europe. His film credits include "The Viking Who Became a Bigamist" (1969), "That Can't Shake Will!" (1970), "Our Willi is the Best" (1971) and "Willi Manages the Whole Thing" (1972).
