Last month Finland hosted its first ever English stand-up comedy festival. The showcase, Arctic Laughs, saw around 30 comedians perform their side-splitting routines. Ali Jahangiri, one of the comedians and organisers of the event, explained ‘This is the first-ever English comedy festival where English is not the native language. In Finland, people don't seem to realise how good our stand-up comedians are, and with the help of this festival we would like change that." The showcase was a big hit, providing ample entertainment for locals and tourists – it even gave some local comedians the chance to show off their talents and practice their English!
