Henrik Schyffert: Why shouldn't you place bananas close to other fruit?
Mikael Tornving: Well, they have nothing to talk about. It's the shallowest damn fruit of them all... it doesn't need to learn conversation with it's shape, it just lies there...
Henrik Schyffert: Bananas release a gas, which make the other fruits grow too quickly.
Johan Wahlström: Banana gas...

Sorry you foreign watchers...
13 November 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

You're really missing out on something here.

To line it up simply for you: Think of the parliament, or think of the democrats and the republicans, and there you have the basic outline for the show. The blue team and the red team battle each other and think up jokes as they go. For example, there's a bit called "Hints from the coach", where the comedians are to answer the host's questions while acting as different things or people.

Parlamentet is a satire-show with the best Swedish comedians out there. Every show is full of well-known, or less well-known comedians which never fail to insult each other or think of obscene, witty or just silly remarks about the other team, the host or Sweden and it's politicians.

Parlamentet is yet to disappoint the Swedish viewers.
