This is one of the only one of these that was recorded. I don't know, maybe they didn't expect the medium to last, or were too narrow-minded in their thoughts on what it could be used for. Unfortunately, that means that it wasn't well-filmed. They did take advantage of the opportunity with an intro and the thing I mention to in the summary, if neither really add to the whole in any meaningful way, and the opening bit, with the knowledge we have now, makes it sad if you stop to think about it. If you don't know, this is a variety show. They would perform this many nights. It keeps to an immense pace, for the nearly 80 minutes of running time. The many famous names(like Daimi) from back then perform really well, and they must have had just enough time to change costumes between the tons of largely short bits. It is over the top much of the time(it is a stage production, after all); with that said, a lot of it is genuinely funny(and Passer as a Russian clown is really good). There are jokes about typical everyday stuff and family life, silly ones, cleverness, wordplay and some raunchy or otherwise crude(it is mainly light and inoffensive) and a *ton* of references. There are sketches, singing(pop music, ridiculously catchy tunes) and a few running gags. This has dancing and half-naked women, too. There's something for everyone, and the amount of material that holds up today(taxes!) is impressive. The DVD comes with subtitles and four trailers for other Danish productions from the period. I recommend this to all fans of the comedians and actors in this. 7/10
