A lotta lotta laughs

Residual winter depression won't stand a chance against these comedy show picks, on this week and next throughout the city.

 

Copenhagen Comedy Club: First Show
Kan du taler dansk? Nej? If you’ve been hankering for some comedy but been running into language barriers, you’re in luck!  The Copenhagen Comedy Club is starting up a new series of British comedy shows in Copenhagen, and the monthly schedule starts Monday. The evening will feature comedians Matt Richardson, a rising star on the London comedy circuit, and Cornwall’s Anna Keirle, a 2003 finalist in ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ and an excellent MC. The show is first come, first served − get moving!

Bar 7, Studiestræde 7, Cph K; Mon 20:30, doors open at 19:30; tickets: 100-150kr, cash only; go in a crowd via www.meetup.com/brit-250; www.lastminutecomedy.com

 

Kierkegaard Comedy Show
Søren Kierkegaard is a pretty sordid fellow. After all, existentialism is a bit … dreary. That’s where scholar Claus Damgaard comes in. In his unique comedy routine, he interprets the works of Kierkegaard and transforms them into something relatable and contemporary. Admittedly “subjective” and “unscientific”, this show is something that is sure to make you think. Before the show is revealed in Copenhagen, Damgaard is offering a free preview of the show − in English! Nevertheless, it sounds dreadful if you’re not interested in philosophy.

Kapellet ved Assistens Kirkegård, Kapelvej 4, Cph N; Sun 20:00; tickets: mail@enten-eller.dk; www.enten-eller.dk

    How internationals can benefit from joining trade unions

  • Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
