After the show got really popular in Norway, Robert Stoltenberg sold the rights for the characters to Norway's biggest newspaper VG, and the TV series now lives on through their commercials. See more »
Robert Stoltenberg proves his sensational talent for comedy and acting as he plays more than half-a-dozen characters in this mockumentary TV-show about a neighbourhood in Oslo, Norway.
It turned Stoltenberg into a major star, having 25% of the nation sitting up at 22:30 at night to watch this show on a thursday night!
Most people seem to love Stoltenberg's finnish character Piirka (who can't hold a job for a day before he's fired) but I think his real brilliance is shown when he plays the dad AND the son in a pakistani family!
And what's great about the whole thing is that Stoltenberg portrays all his characters with love and care. A brilliant comedy-show kids, parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents can enjoy! Now how often do you see that? This week the entire show comes out on DVD and VHS here in Norway! CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY COPY OF IT! :)
