How to become Icelandic in 60 minutes

How to become Icelandic in 60 minutes

4th successful year!!!

For 1100 years Icelanders have been trying to grow as a nation. As of today there are only around 320.000 Icelanders living. Around 500.000 Icelanders are dead and therefore currently cannot help their nation with this task. Since Iceland is the navel of the universe the world needs more Icelanders. Please help!

In seeing "How to become Icelandic in 60 minutes" Bjarni Haukur Thorsson teaches you everything you need to know about being Icelandic, in just one hour. You will learn how to walk, talk and behave like a regular Icelander. Additionally you will learn why eating sour sheep balls might save your life.

The show is much more than a stand up comedy routine, it is a hilarious blend of incisive and visual observation of the Icelandic human condition, their attitudes, struggles and everyday life. You will laugh and learn and at the end of the show leave the theater feeling 100% Icelandic.

Come and see the show. Laugh, learn and be of help.

Iceland needs you!
