Kung Fury and stuff

Been a while since I posted something on the blog, but here we go:
I’m really happy to be a (small) part of the Swedish internet sensation Kung Fury. It’s a 30 minute short film that was created by David Sandberg who also stars in the movie. As I’m writing this it’s been online for a few days and is already over 12 million views! If you want to support the gang behind it, go here and buy a download...

The Game Plan (new special etc)

Due to a massive tour in Sweden and some personal stuff I haven’t been able to work much in english lately but that’s about to change. Just thought I’d give you a quick update on what’s going on. I’ll be recording a special consisting of stuff from my two Edinburgh Fringe shows and when that’s done I’ll start writing a new hour while touring clubs all over Europe 2015. The plan is to do the Fringe again next august with...

Latest Trip

The idea was a trip to Kenya and Tanzania to read, write and do research for the big project I call life, all while giving Lina and Helena a chance to see some wild animals before they’re extinct. The black rhino is almost gone. So is the leopard and hundreds of other less sexy animals that nobody gives a shit about. Anyway, we arrived in Sermburu after a smooth trip via Amsterdam and Nairobi. Smooth that is, if you don’t...

They wanted me to be in the Eurovision Song Contest

Eurovision Song Contest is back in Sweden again. We can’t seem to win that thing enough, can we? Anyway, I was just thinking…
Now that we have it (again) wouldn’t it be great if we used it to, you know, tell some of the countries in it that they’re assholes?
I mean both Russia, Turkey and Israel are in that thing after all. The least we could do is hint at the problems in countries like Belarus,
like that German...

Happy new year!

2012 was a horrible year for me on a personal level, possibly the worst ever. But let’s not dwell on that and focus on work where it was one of the best. After a well deserved vacation in january I ended my 4th tour of scandinavia and released my 6th comedy special. At the same time I had my own tv show that was awarded Sweden’s most prestigious tv award. And then got cancelled. I think that’s a first. Anyway,...

#classicmoviemarathon

A list of movies, compiled by decade, to watch during the holidays. Based on my preferences and what’s available on Netflix, Headweb, iTunes and my DVD-shelf. Compiling the list i realized the 80ies was a totally retarded decade when it came to movies and that I’m not much for comedies. 100’s should be added of course, but these are the ones we’re starting out with. Enjoy.
1920
Battleship Potemkin, Eisenstein
The Tramp, Chaplin
1930
Gone with the wind, Fleming

A bit I did about the porntrial.

The #porntrial took up a lot of my time this summer, just because it was such a strange story with so many implications. It doesn’t seem to have been a big story here and maybe not even in The UK if you disregard the “twitter elite.” Anyway, check the story out. It’s far more interesting than this little routine makes it out to be. And I also forgot to mention that fisting in itself is perfectly legal in England. And...

Assange

Finally got around to filming one of my gigs. The gig was in Stockholm in front of an audience of mainly swedes wich is always a bit weird but it was still fun. Did a short version of my take on Assange. If you want to read more about the legal stuff regarding that I think this article by David Allen Green pretty much sums it up. There is so much bullshit coming from the Assange-supporters on this I really...

My Fringe is over!

It’s kind of sad to see the Fringe being packed up. Some shows are still running but most of us had our last gig yesterday so signs and posters are being taken down and venues are closing. It’s been a blast this year! Met a lot of old and new friends, had a run of nice shows and managed to get a bunch of nice reviews. Also got to see a few really good shows this time around. Eddie Pepitone...

My Fringe so far… (reviews and tv)

I’m now about halfway through the Edinburgh Fringe and after an initial incident with an absolutely inhabitable flat and a move to another one I’m enjoying it very much. That may well have to do with the fact that I decided to pace myself a bit this time around. Not partying quite as hard as last time I was over and above all, not do nearly as many gigs. Last time I was over I did 60 gigs in 3...

After that I’ll be at The Glee Club in Cardiff to do 3 nights nov 11-13 and on the 16th I’ll go to London to do my last performance of the show I did in...

Bertrand Russell

What a brilliant mind he had. There are a few people who’s writing can really inspire. Russell is definetly one of them. I urge you all to read his books though some of it is dated, since they’re written a few decades ago. The clarity of thought that man possessed is just… mindblowing. I’m currently reading “The Impact of Science on Society” and “Human Society in Ethics and Politics” and I strongly recommend you do the same. Don’t miss his...

Me, in spanish

Had a great time in Dublin and London. Solo shows in Dublin were sold out and crowd was great. Gonna do that show once more, in London and then I’m gonna start working on a new hour. Same goes for Scandinavia, where my tour ends in about 6 weeks. It will be a pleasant experience to work on the same material in english as in swedish and not jump back and forth between the two as I’ve been doing the...

Clip from The International

Small part of what I did in Dublin:
Tonight I have a show in Stockholm. 1200 seats and there isn’t a single ticket left. Great way to end the first portion of that tour! Tomorrow I’m off for two gigs in Amsterdam. Details in the calendar.

The International

I wasn’t feeling well at all before the gig yesterday. Think I got some sort of anxiety attack. All of a sudden I couldn’t breathe and I got dizzy. It was all fine before it was time to get on stage though. The tiny room was absolutely packed. From stage it felt as if people were litteraly climbing the walls. I had 12 minutes to do my thing. That is not much. It’s also really hard to work without a...

Some great gigs!

Galway was fantastic. Both the city and the actual club. The Roisin Dubh was the name of the club and the audience of a little more than 200 was great. It was one of those nights where some partying would have been in order, but I just couldn’t do it. I needed sleep. 11 hours of it. After that i felt a lot better and after a walk through Galway with Helena it was time to head back to Dublin.

Lost my Dublin virginity

The interview yesterday was pretty good. They said it would be availible as a podcast, but I can’t find it. Maybe it’s not up yet. Anyway, here is where you look: http://dublincityfm.ie/
The first gig yesterday got cancelled. No people showed up. Aparently the recession has hit the Dublin comedy scene hard and many of them are struggling to even get an audience. Not so at my second gig. It had a decent crowd in a nice little room and...

The Pogues

We came to Dublin sunday night and just happened walk past a theatre where The Pogues was playing. What better way to get to know a bit of Irish culture than to see them? We did. It was awesome. But also tragic. I mean, I know he’s a drunk. But I had no idea it was that bad. He had to be led on and off stage. He left several times when other guys was doing the lead singing to...
