Fresh from his 8 day, 15 show residency in front of 14,000 people back home in Iceland, Ari Eldjárn is back in Edinburgh for the first time since 2019. Join him this May as he prepares for his third Fringe hour after standout shows 'Pardon my Icelandic' (which went on to make Ari the first Icelandic comedian to have a Netflix Comedy Special) and Eagle Fire Iron (available to buy here on limited edition Frosted Clear Vinyl).

"Ari Eldjárn's return to Edinburgh is an immediately appealing guide to his homeland, filtered though personal tales and relatable observational humour." (The Scotsman) 

As seen on Mock The Week (BBC Two) and a host of BBC Radio Comedy Programmes, including The Arts Hour on Tour (BBC World Service), Scotland Vs.The World (BBC Radio 4) The Today Programme (BBC Radio 4) and an episode of Welcome To Wherever You Are (BBC Radio 4).
