Why Even Bother
One Norwegian – over 20 different characters!
In this dark, audio-heavy, one-man comedy we get a glimpse into the world of “Main Character” and the everyday struggles of his ’normal’ life. This performance focus on a young Norwegian in London who is trying keep going when life keeps kicking him in the balls.
Even the best of us will end up asking ’Why even bother?’ when faced with “Co-worker” and his collection of cat pictures, or when “Flatmate” greets you with:
“We’re out of food. I’ll be in my room watching Amish MILF porn.”
This piece of new writing is relatively absurd and stands out from most other comedy shows in regard to its use of sound and voice-over.
Joakim uses his voice-over talents and experience to create and embody the variety of characters featured within it. The show creatively combines audio and physical performance, providing a refreshing take on the subject matter.
