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 .
When Anders "Anden" Matthesen gets on a stand-up stage, he really can make you laugh. He'll start talking, most likely about some random thing from everyday life, and a few seconds later you as well as almost anyone you watch it with will be rolling on the floor, laughing. The great thing about this one-man show is that it's divided into two different parts; in one, he's aggressive as usual... in the other he's... uhm... more aggressive... no, actually, he's just *slightly* aggressive, and in the other, he doesn't hold back at all. The first half is happy and cheery... the second is as depressing as it gets while still being funny. Then again, maybe the word isn't depressing, but depressed. The first half has all the happy jokes, the second has all of the unhappy ones. Everybody has something they think is ridiculous in society, and Anden expresses everything he hates, and makes us all laugh while he's at it. Great stuff. The DVD of this show also has some nice extra features, one involving a question round in which he answers various questions in a humorous fashion. That really proved his ability to improvise. There are some quiz-like features as well, with great bonuses for those patient enough to work through them. Of course, like most other releases Anden has done, there are a few jokes that seem a little poorly written or tame, and more than once does he go a little too far over the line. Most of the jokes are great, though, and now that I've seen it once, I know that I am going to watch it more than a few times again. I love his brand of humor, and anyone who does as well will love this show. I recommend this to any fan of aggressive humor, stand-up comedy and/or Anden. It's well worth buying for any major fan of him. 9/10
