I don't know about you, but I love standup comedy, specially when it's presented by funny, witty, and smart comedians. You can imagine my excitement when I noticed that Trevor Noah was visiting Stockholm as part of his world tour, aptly named "Back to Abnormal." I immediately texted my friend, and within minutes we booked our tickets to go and see one of my favourite standup comedians, live.
It was great. I wish I could have taken some videos but taking pictures, videos, or audio recordings was strictly prohibited during the show which was wonderful because everyone just sat and enjoyed the jokes. I laughed so hard, I ended up having a headache that lasted for hours 😂😂😂 It was a great show, not his best work, but great nonetheless. My only complaint is that it was a bit short (specially compared to the show I will talk about in a bit).
Cue forward to the day after, my friend Mo messaged me on WhatsApp and asked if I knew Jeff Dunham, of course I knew him, he is hilarious. Apparently, he was coming to Stockholm on Saturday and my friend asked if I want to go, my answer was a resounding yes, and we booked the tickets, immediately.
The show was just astonishing. The arena was almost full and for a couple of hours, every were laughing their hearts out. Jeff is a phenomenal entertainer and everyone loved his routines, I shed a couple of tears at some point from the hysterical laugher, that should tell you how good of a show it was. This might be controversial, but I enjoyed this show more than Trevor Noah's one (and it was longer).
It was a good week, full of laugher and good company. I am glad more events are happening in Stockholm and that I get to take part in them. I look forward to the next events and conferences. If you ever get the chance to see either Trevor or Jeff live, do it, it's most definitely worth it.
