Who is … Casper Christensen?

A  44-year-old Danish comedian best known for his many TV appearances and girlfriends.

Isn’t he in ‘Klovn’?
Yes. Christensen and comic partner Frank Hvam are the creators, writers and stars of the successful comedy series, as well as the film of the same name. Granted, it isn’t a work of genius considering it’s a pretty blatant rip-off of HBO’s ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’.
What else has he done?
Pretty much anything that involves no creative thought process. Barring the odd comedy show like ‘Langt fra Las Vegas’, they’re all acquired from abroad: from ‘Shooting Stars’ and ‘Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush’ to ‘Deal/No Deal’. He also had his own live chat show called ‘Aloha’.

What was that like?
It was a Danish version of the ‘David Letterman Show’, with Christensen replacing the New York funnyman. He’s obviously very liberal about borrowing creative ideas from the US.

He smoked a joint while speaking to Konservative politician Brian Mikkelsen on the subject of marijuana legalisation.

So what’s he doing these days?
He’s dedicated to running his own comedy production company, although you can currently catch him in the latest TDC commercial in which he swans about with a girlfriend 18 years his junior and goes to the skate park with his kids. Yes, it can get confusing on the school run.  

Bit of a ladies man then?
He was married to his co-presenter on the toothbrush show, Annette Toft, but moved on to his ‘Las Vegas’ co-star
Iben Hjejle.
Still together?
No. He moved onto 26-year-old Isabel Friis-Mikkelsen, whom he hired as his assistant when he was still with Hjejle.

That’s a bit awkward …
Yes, but he’s also pals with her father, actor Jarl Friis-Mikkelsen. We bet that’s going to be a fun julefrukost this year!
