In spring 2002, six of the best stand-up comedians join forces under the name >Den aegte vare<. The goal was to show the audience six different styles in stand- uppens original form - total purged of "loaned" jokes and song .
The three elves ("nisser") Hansi, Fritz, and Günter have to save the dying "Gammelnisse", the only way being to rewind his magic music box. This leads to a hunt for the winding key far, far... See full summary »
Probably "Anden"'s best stand-up, on one single DVD
After having seen each of the four stand-up sets on this DVD at least five or six times, I'm still laughing at most of the jokes. That surely defines great comedy. Anden's excellent, energetic, and somewhat aggressive style of comedy is presented at the peak of his talent in this little collection. It contains one part made for TV, one made for stand-up touring, one made up of extra material from the one that was made for TV, and finally, his very first stand-up performance. Each of them is entertaining to watch, albeit the last is for slightly different reasons than the other three; the last one is fun to watch because you see how Anden started his career, you see a little spark of what later became the aggressive fire that drives most of his stand-up performances. The others are without a doubt among the greatest stand-up that Anden has ever done, together with his performance on Den Ægte Vare, in which he was undoubtedly the one that stole the show. Any fan of Danish stand-up shouldn't miss this excellent display of talent from Anden who is second to none, and only equaled by other great talents such as Jan Gintberg(honorable mentions include Povl Carstensen, Thomas Wivel, Carsten Bang and Sebastian Dorset). The only thing that's keeping this from a perfect score of ten is the occasional joke that falls flat, and the few times where he steps completely over the line(though it isn't very evident in this), and one or two jokes that, on repeated viewings, seem a little lame. All in all, it's great, and nearly perfect. I recommend this DVD to any fan of Anden, his style of stand-up, and aggressive humor in general. Get it. You won't regret it. 9/10
