Friends had recommended this to us and we went at the beginning of our trip. Although it was funny at times we did think it would be more humorous. Our host made jokes about some other nationalities, however they fell short as no one was...More

Enjoyed this hour-long comedy and recommend it. The host made it appropriate for the young kids in the front row, though the themes are more mature and laugh out loud funny. Afterward, we recalled the full list of how-tos while enjoying Icelandic beer!

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.
