Scandinavian Jesus

Comedy (stand-up, dark comedy)

Venue Age Restriction: Under 18s allowed if accompanied by an adult
Dates, Times and Prices


After a few years away from the comedy stage, the Scandinavian cult comedian Tomas Ahlbeck returns to the Edinburgh Fringe. This time he brings us: Scandinavian Jesus – a dark, satirical and terrifyingly funny introduction to life in the new dark ages, on the northern outskirts of Europe. Tomas calls this show Scandinavian Jesus because it has nothing to do with religion. But you can listen to what he says and interpret it however you want... just like they did with Jesus.
