Pernille Sørensen Named Norway’s Funniest At Komiprisen

On Saturday night, Komiprisen 2016 celebrated the best of Norwegian comedy at the Ole Bull Scene in Bergen. The awards ceremony has been held in Oslo since it began in 2001, but switched to Bergen this year as part of Humorfest.

Production Manager, Mads Tørklep, said to Bergens Avisen: “We have basically said that we should try this for one year, but we really want to be there from now on.”

“We hope to be in Bergen for three years, but it partly depends on the cost. We fly over a team of 50 people staying in hotels and eating food. In addition, we transport many tonnes of equipment.”

However, in light of the helicopter crash on Friday in which 13 people lost their lives some adjustments were made to the content of the show:

Tørklep told VG: “We have made some changes in some of the presentations on stage in the interests of the event… We have been in contact with some of the comedians and asked them to check their material in light of yesterday’s tragic incident.”
