Ari Eldjárn

Ari Eldjárn

A breakout hit at the 2018 Festival, the former flight attendant and Iceland's biggest comedy star is all set to return in 2020, bringing with him his utterly charming fast and friendly comedy.

Born and raised in Reykjavík, he's a star in his native country and continues his rise in global stardom following sold out runs in Edinburgh and London's Soho Theatre, as well as appearing on the BBC's Mock the Week and performing with the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra.

With a stubborn determination to translate Icelandic material into fluent English, Ari covers fatherhood, mindfulness, Icelandic weather and what it's like to live in a country with an entire population of just 360,000 people.

His second show in English, this smart and mischievous comedian is a sure-fire hit for 2020!
