BIOGRAFIE MC Rene Das alte Leben hinter sich lassen. Den Job hinschmeißen, die Wohnung kündigen, Hab und Gut verschenken. Alles, was bleibt, ist ein Koffer, die Bahncard 100 und das Ziel: zurück auf die Bühne. René El Khazraje aka MC Rene, Jahrgang 1976, galt in den 90er Jahren als einer der talentiertesten HipHoper des Landes, er hatte einen Plattenvertrag, tausende Fans, eine Show beim Musiksender Viva und später ein eigenes Musiklabel. Am Anfang steht seine verrückte Idee buchstäblich Alles auf eine Karte zu setzen. Er reist drei Jahr lang durch Deutschland und tritt in Landgasthöfen und Fußgängerzonen auf mit dem Ziel auf die Bühne als Stand-up-Comedian zurückzukehren. 12 Monate, 102 Auftritte, 146 560 Schienenkilometer später verfasst er alle Erlebnisse in einem Buch und das von ihm selbst eingelesene Hörbuch erscheint auf einem USB Speichermedium im innovativen Look einer Bahncard 100 auf der ein Soundtrack zum Buch mit 6 exclusiven Songs zu hören ist! Was habe ich schon zu verlieren? Diese Zeit ist für ihn aus und vorbei. MC Rene, das war einmal. Irgendwann realisiert seine Chefin Nicole, wen sie da eigentlich die ganze Zeit in ihrem Call-Canter beschäftigt hat: ´´Wenn ich das gewusst hätte, Mann! Dein YouTube-Video hat ja über eine halbe Million Klicks!´´. Es ist sein cooler Kollege Eric, der ihn schließlich auf die rettende Idee bringt. Eine verrückte, schräge, bizarre Idee, die sein Leben vom Kopf auf die Füße stellen wird. Die ihn verändern und seinem Traum von einem neuen Bühnenleben als Comedian näher bringen wird. Die Idee ist buchstäblich bahnbrechend: ´´Dann kauf dir doch ´ne Bahncard 100 ?´´ Was als Witz begann, wird zur verführerischen Vision: ´´Einfach den Reset-Knopf drücken. Der Beat ginge an, und der Zug würde losfahren. Leben in Bewegung, ein neuer Anfang.
