Time Travel and Stand Up - Double Feature

Jefferson Bond

Ever since being found in the woods by the Dalai Lama, Jefferson has always been very good at making up wild and convincing stories.

 

Jefferson has been a part of the Danish stand up circuit for 3 years but with his absurd observations on Danish and British culture, family life and social norms. This combined with his own brand of highly energetic physical movement and misplaced charm he has already taken Copenhagen by storm. He became the first English speaking comedian to become a finalist in both Sweden and Denmark’s national comedy competition in his first year and has appeared on Danish national television on TV2 and DR Radio. His first one man show ‘My Life as a Rockstar Astronaut and Other Lies’ earned him 4 stars. As well as this he has performed as a supporting act alongside Simon Talbot and Russell Howard in their Danish tour.

As an actor most recently he has starred as ‘Puck’ in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in association with The Royal Danish Theatre and with Lars Mikkelsen as directorial consultant and his voiceover work includes recording for Lego, Mærsk, Novo Nordisk Copenhagen Malmö Port, TV2 and Pandora Jewellery. 

 

He is also apparently very arrogant when writing in the 3rd person.

You can keep up to date on all of his stand up gigs on Instagram and Facebook at Jefferson Bond Comedy.

Floy - Me, Myself and Janis Joplin

 

Floy: Me, Myself and Janis Joplin at the English Theatre

On the 50th anniversary of Janis Joplin's death, the Hamburg soul singer Floy verbally and musically moves thoughts on what the spirit of Janis Joplin meant to her and the world, then and now. A spirit of departure, of the unconventional, of freedom and revolution. Because tearing down inner and outer boundaries has lost little of its topicality.

Soul singer Floy, who has fascinated audiences for decades, not only in her native Hamburg, reveals in this rousing show what her original inspiration was to become a soul, blues and gospel singer.

Successful director and director of the English Theatre in Hamburg, Paul Glaser (Apologia, The Picture of Dorian Grey), together with Floy and virtuoso pianist Lutz Krajenski, brings this spirit back to the stage.

"This play is not a classical musical, play or concert, but rather an encounter with the inspiration Janis Joplin", so Paul Glaser.
