Swedish humor...

We spent a lot of our Christmas holidays catching up on Swedish television online. We saw all episodes of Grotesco, a new comedy program. While the Husband was on the floor laughing (his kind of humor) I stayed in my seat, but did laugh a bit.

The character Sven Hilding is my favorite... Swedish in essence... He is a Swedish diplomat, in this episode he is sent to Paris to present the Swedish views on... something...

Actually in "English" (and some "French" in the beginning)!

I was watching Henrik Dursin alias Sven Hilding performing his show "Certified quality entertainment". It was extraordinary! He's really the new king of Swedish comedy, if only that.

Marie - det var svägerskan som hittade på nätet och vi såg alla i ett svep (det blev kanske lite för mycket...). Speciell svensk humor. Maken låg på golvet och skrattade - men jag satt kvar i stolen - men kul att se - och alltid kul att se när det driver med hur vi är i "utlandet".

Idépappan - he is really, really funny! Some of the sketches were brilliant. And it made you wonder what their writing-sessions are like... when they come up with the ideas... "a tunnel to Göteborg in the 70s"...

I write in english so more can understand. I like Grotesco though I missed to watch it when they showed it on svt , but there is always internet to find the funny parts. I will recommend 1 that was very funny.

jag tycker itne grotesco är så jättekul om jags ak av ärlig men Bestefar-sketchen är ju nåt av de roliagste jag sett på TV på länge! Sök på youtube om du inte redan sett det
