Philip Goebbels wanted to stop his career: ‘I was looking for more balance in my life’ | showbiz

BVPhilip Geubels (41) will shine again on stage next fall with his new show “Geubels Bathe”. But his popularity at that time also had a downside. He frankly told De Telegraaf that he considered ending his career ten years ago. It seems that “the pressure has become too great”.

Comedian and TV face Philip Goebbels seems to be doing quite well. In the fall, she will begin rehearsing his new show in the hall “Geoples Goes Bad”. He can also currently be seen on the TV show “Hotel Romantiek” on One, alongside Gloria Monserez and Sven de Leijer. His successful career appears to be rosy, although this was not always the case.

In a frank interview with De Telegraaf, he spoke about the difficult period he went through. “About ten years ago, I noticed that I had to start making choices, because I accepted everything that came my way. I had theater shows, been asked about TV shows and all kinds of other business commitments.” He had a lot on his plate. “Everything went really fast and I wasn’t ready for that. At some point I seriously thought and thought about quitting my career.” Geubels was under great pressure and sometimes had to complete up to four projects simultaneously. “The pressure is increasing.”

He went on to say that it wasn’t fatigue, it had something to do with finding balance in his life. “I wasn’t in my 30s and everything looked so good at the time, but I had a hard time. I had it for a while.” Fortunately, Goebbels was able to overcome his problems. “I decided to do fewer projects at the same time. As a result, I found work-life balance again. I am now comfortable in my own skin and can handle just about anything.”

His last stage show dates back to 2016, but in the meantime, Geubels is ready to make a comeback. The show is called “Geubels Go in Bath” and will premiere in February 2023. With fall coming, the comedian will already be touring Flanders with some auditions. He has already lifted an angle of the veil to “Shuppets”. “Am I going to lie in the cockpit for the entirety of the show? I don’t know yet,” he said with a laugh. “I’m still in the preparation stage.” Tickets cost about 30 to 35 euros. “I think it’s important that it remains accessible to everyone,” he concludes.
