This weekend I was in Norway to perform at Latter, which is probably the best comedy club in Europe. They have 3 stages, a great restaurant, a bar / club and the whole thing is so professionally run. I did Friday and Saturday there and both shows were sold out.

Jesus the food in Latter is good, these were the best lamb chops I’ve ever tasted and they gave me a small mountain of them too. Norwegian lamb is the way to go, shove it up your ass Sam Kekovich

The weather in Oslo was perfect, not too cold but a nice layer of snow everywhere. I stayed down by the water and it was super pretty. Getting around Oslo is pretty easy. I like Oslo, its the perfect combination of Stockholm and Helsinki. Doesn’t have the attitude of Stockholm and has more nice old buildings than Helsinki.

Both nights the headliner was Dag Sørås, the best comedian in Norway right now and a bloke I’m happy to call my friend. In a country without much political comedy, he is slamming it to them and the crowd loves him. I also recorded a podcast with him about how the shootings have affected Norway, which you can find here.

I had fun both nights but the second one was definitely better, I had a second half slot just before Dag and I loved the rowdy drunk Christmas audiences. You don’t get many hecklers in Finland and Estonia and I loved facing off against some guys who were so drunk they could barely speak English. I had a load of fun and everyone was super cool to me.

I’m back in Tallinn now and I have a huge week ahead: Tartu, Tallinn, Helsinki, Tampere, Turku. If I can make it through this week the year is almost over.

Here is a video of the take off from Oslo airport today.
