Louis Zezeran and Sami Hedberg are proud to present the biggest English Comedy Event each month in Helsinki, the English Night at Apollo on Nov 21 and English Comedy Club Turku on Nov 22

This month we present two amazing International comedians with headliner, good friend of Comedy Finland, Markus Birdman!

Markus’ show is a dissection of the end of a relationship and its aftermath, with a cool look at marriage, religion, sexuality and romantic archetypes. And it’s a whole lot more fun that suggests. Birdman cuts a dashing figure, elegant, poised, smart and theatrical. There’s an abundance of wit and honesty that lifts it way out of the ordinary. He doesn’t paint himself particularly heroically – he’s volatile and quick to take offence, even from an eight-year-old, but there’s an unsentimental emotional core to this, which gives depth to the barbed observations and knowing sexual undercurrent.

This is not a vulgar or explicit show, but certainly ‘contains adult themes’. It’s not only about romantic love, there’s the passionate love of family, for his parents, for his children and an incisive approach to championing same-sex relationships and marriage. It’s a hugely entertaining show of thoughtful, heartfelt mature comedy, performed crisply with great energy and dynamism.

‘He packs his show with more affection, positivity and healthiness than you find in a pharmacy. Like a moment of genuine loveliness that is hard to explain. Funnily positive and positively funny.’ (Skinny).

Our opening act in Helsinki is John Hastings from Canada! He is a comedian. He has been on television (in Canada, yes it still counts), on the radio in the UK (BBC4 which still counts as well) and on stage in America (it was a contest where he was the only Canadian finalist). He was also told by the Comedy Network that he was one to watch. He can’t wait to come to Tallinn. Mostly because he has never been here and is excited to see what it’s like.
