Name: Claus Reiss (DK)
Languages English, Danish
Claus Reiss is the only comedian in Europe who entertains with the bagpipe. Being a professionel bagpipe player he uses a lot of self-irony in his jokes and music pieces. Each of Claus’ performances are never the same because he uses improvisation to interact with the audience in a funny and unpretentious way. Bottom fact, he is a charming guy who always makes everyone in the audience laugh telling jokes and playing unexpected tunes and movie themes on the bagpipe.
“His set was invredibly inventive and very funny. Having broken the Scandinavian circuit, I fully expect Claus to do the same in the UK.”
Andy Leitch. Project Manager, Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival 2011.
Claus also attended Edingburgh Fringe Festival in 2013 with his show ‘A Danish Bagpipe Comedian’ and it got a 4 out of 5 star review from Three Weeks Magazine which said: ’…admirable flexibility and wit’
’…a show that feels warm and inclusive’
