Hella Kemper (born 2 February 1959 in Gummersbach) known by her stage name Hella von Sinnen (lit. Hella out of [her] mind, making pun of the aristocratic von) is a German entertainer. She had several TV shows on German private channels (mainly RTL Group). Since the show's first air date on January 11, 2003, she has formed (together with Bernhard Hoëcker) the two permanent panel members of the award-winning weekly Sat.1 improvisational comedy show Genial daneben (lit. ingeniously aside) presented by her main TV partner Hugo Egon Balder. In this show, von Sinnen, Hoëcker and three varying comedians try to answer strange questions sent in by the audience. Her stage name is a pun on the German von preposition denoting noble descent; von Sinnen is a German expression for mad.

She supported the fight for same-sex marriage in Germany with her wife Cornelia Scheel, stepdaughter of former President of Germany Walter Scheel.[1]
