Johan Glans performs standup comedy in Tokyo

Click here see the ticket page for Johan's Monday night show on October 17th!

This show sold out quickly, but we managed to squeeze in just a few more tickets, so you have a chance to buy a "Latecomer" ticket! Get them before they go like all the rest of the tickets!

The Tokyo Comedy Store is proud to present Sweden's top standup comedian, Johan Glans!

Johan Glans is one of the biggest comedians in Sweden. In addition to being a popular tv-host and a participant in some of our most popular panel shows, he is a director, writer, and a highly regarded actor who has performed in numerous musicals.

In 2008, Johan wrote and performed the stand-up tour "World tour of Skåne" in and around his home town. His show, both mocking and loving of his upbringing in the countryside, was then performed nation-wide to sold-out arenas. This was followed by "World tour of Scandinavia" in 2013, which toured Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, and Finland and was an enormous success.

In 2016, he will finalize the concept and complete his trilogy with "The World Tour of World", visiting every continent before taking it back to his homeland, Sweden.

Johan has won "Male Comedian 2013" at the Swedish Comedy Awards, the prestigious "Karamellodiktstependiet" 2011 in honor of the late Povel Ramel, and "Best Male Performer" by the magazine "Opera" in the ”Musicals" category for his performance in Monty Python’s ’Spamalot’ in 2011.

With his snappy, bold ability, and his intelligent humour, he has helped to expand standup comedy itself. Glans is also one of today's most important parliamentarians. And he is one of very few Swedes who can laugh in French.

Johan will be performing at Good Heavens in Shimokitazwa, where they offer great food and drinks in a casual and comfortable British pub atmosphere in which to enjoy the show.

Joining Johan will be Tokyo Comedy Store regular Kris Laios (who happens to be Swedish, by amazing coincidence), comedic magician Wille Hegestad (also Swedish, so maybe there's a pattern here), and Waka Takashi (not at all Swedish). The night will be hosted by standup and improv comedian Dave Gutteridge (who could pass for Swedish, but won't).

Price includes 1 drink!

Note that this show is in English.

(Please note, Good Heavens, where this show is taking place, is a bar. A ticket gets you entry, but does not guarantee a particular seat. Please come early to ensure you have a good spot!)
