How To Become Icelandic In 60 Minutes teaches you everything you need to know about being icelandic in just one hour. You walk out of the theatre 100% Icelandic.The show is much more than a stand up comedy. It is a hillarious, incisive and visual observation of the icelandic human condition, their attitudes, struggles and every day life.

It's a little off-color but not too bad. Maybe not suitable for little kids, but anyone over 13 will get something out of the show. The presenter has the material down pat, and it gives you an overview of Icelandic attitudes and customs. Good way...More

My wife and I really enjoyed the show. Yes it is about stereotypes so you have to accept that from the start. However the delivery is first class, the guy moves and do all sort of noises and accents that entertained us every minute. We...More

Of course, this show is going to make fun of people, mostly Icelandics, though no nationality was safe. And like most humor some things are exaggerated for humor sake. Our group of 4 people ranging from 26 yrs. old to 66 yrs. old enjoyed it....More

A brilliant one-man show covering all the essentials of how to become Icelandic. A fast paced romp explaining this unique island-states peculiar habits and how to (and how not to) be like the locals. Fun crossreferences and a few potshots at audience nationalities and finally...More

We really enjoyed this hour-long show. It was a well-done presentation which included a one-man show with accompanying video, music and set. We will recommend this to friends heading to Iceland.

Mostly did this because it was the only thing playing the night we were at Harpa and wanted to experience this amazing theater. To be honest, didn't find it funny or entertaining. Not for lack of trying - the lead certainly has a lot of...More

Tickets are easily obtained via the website however having checked your dates I don’t think it is on then. I cannot paste a link as this App does not allow characters.

Hello. Thank you for your mail. Yes, there is first come, first served and no seats are assigned. It is a medium sized theater so you will see very well wherever you sit. Many thanks!

The cost is about 42 US dollars. The show is definitely WORTH IT! We loved it. I don't know about group rates or discounts, but you can always ask.
