Sweden's biggest comic headlines Canada's best comedy club.
I’ve been doing comedy some 12 years. Mostly in Sweden, where I’ve done three comedyspecials on national TV. There are 4 DVDs out with my stuff. A box with all of them is to be released in december 2009 and it will have english subtitles. The first 3 months of 2009 I spent in New York working at clubs such as Carolines, Laugh Lounge, Eastville Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club and lots of other places. The rest of 2009 was spent in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK and Denmark, where I made my first TV-appearance on danish TV.
I also had a TV-show of my own on Swedish TV called “In your face” where I went to places like a church, a mosque and some political organisations to do comedy. It was aired 2008. I have also starred on a lot of other swedish comedyshows, but my main focus is standup comedy live. That’s the artform I know and love. This is where I will write about my work on the comedyscene in english. For 2010 I have spots booked in the UK and Ireland. All dates and info is in the calendar.
Some of the clubs I’ve worked in the UK so far include: Comedy Café, Jongleurs, Up the Creek, Banana Cabarét and a lot of others. Looking forward to adding more to that list.
