Tobias Persson has written and performed Stand up comedy in Swedish for over 20 years.
He did his first-ever gig in English in London 2009. After two years of constant traveling and trying out jokes (and finding a manager!) Tobias finally got booked by the best clubs in the UK. He still flies over and does shows (Like The Edinburgh Fringe) but the pandemic put a stop to further adventures in 2020.
“Persson’s insights are sharp, his analysis is intelligent and his everyday dilemmas over how to be a good human being come from the heart…it’s clear he’s got it in him to become one of Europe’s top political comedians.”
“Thoughtful and silly. He makes some sophisticated parallels alongside some surreal little islands of the bizarre and profane…an easy-going intelligence, and a curiosity which makes him lovely.”
”He is a funny guy and great storyteller”
”Mastering a language to the extent that you can tell jokes in it is always impressive. Persson speaks English almost like a native with only the slightest of accents and with the full range of swear words sprinkled throughout his set. A pleasantly insightful hour.”
”Persson delivers strong punchlines and impressive off-the-cuff punning. ”
”A loveable, goofy and bumbling stand-up who excels at spontaneous, random ad-libbing. His routine is sprinkled with witty observations, which he recalls, re-examines and develops into a rich repertoire. With his charming grin, unexpected punch lines and dynamic demeanor, Persson is a natural boy-next-door. A refreshing taste of absurdity, comfortably mastered by the Swedish comic.”
”He is an affable, urbane guy with a bright, distinctive comic voice.”
