Next Thursday the 18th of October Comedy Finland presents a very special show in Helsinki featuring one of the biggest comedians on the circuit today, Brendon Burns from Australia!
Headliner: Brendon Burns (AUS)
For two decades now the adopted Australian has been Britain’s most outspoken and number one cult comic. Since taking away the long-awaited Oscar of live stand-up comedy: the if.comedy award for best live comedy show in 2007, Burns has been one of the most prolific and busiest men in showbusiness both here and across the pond.
In late 2008 Burns recorded not one but two live DVDs for Universal, and aired a special on Comedy Central over the Spring of 2009.
Also in the fall of 2009 Burns made his US TV debut on Paul Provenza’s Green Rooms on Showtime as a regular contributer and panellist. Appearing alongside such greats as Eddie Izzard, Andy Kindler, Andy Dick, Roseanne Barr, Larry Miller, Dana Gould and Jonathan Winters.
Dag Sørås (NO)
Dag Sørås is the number one comedian in Norway today. He is hard-hitting, politically charged and brutally honest. Afghanistan, the surveillance state, social anxiety, anti-intellectualism and religion are just some of the springboards Sørås bounces off before plunging head first into a deep pool of controversy. Be in no doubt – this is exceptionally skillful comedy for those not interested in being patronised or pandered to.
Dag currently has his own show on Norwegian TV called D-Dag and recently finished a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his show “Outside the Comfort Zone”. Dag’s raw, intelligent comedy attracted the attention of one of the worlds top comedians, Doug Stanhope and Dag has opened for him on his last tour of England and Norway.
“Intelligent humor”. -Erling Borgen
“I’ve been quoting Dag Sørås bits to anyone who will listen since working with him in London. If he didn’t work in English as well, I’d suggest you learn Norwegian and then go see him. Just be sure he eats before you start feeding him drinks at 7 in the morning.” – Doug Stanhope
