So… The My Happy Place tour is over. I want to say tack tack så mycket x 1000 to all of you who bought tickets and came to watch the show, Comedy only happens because of you 🙌🏻❤️ and What a few years.
I came up with the idea for the show in 2018 😳 It went onsale in December 2019 and yeah then the shit hit the fan for a few years. (huge kram to the healthcare workers) But now after 96 shows all over Sverige and the world, its complete. All the people who helped make the entire tour a sell out know how much I love them and how I am so grateful that I get to work with them…. and also My family who were surprisingly delighted that I went out on tour. The show changed so much, it just became something that I wanted audiences to come and Laugh until they cried. Now a few weeks off and I will begin to write the next one….., we have filmed the this show so you will see that as well.
But till then from the bottom of my heart for making it My Happy Place …Thank you and tack for reading to the end ❤️

Vill bara säga att vi är SÅÅÅ nöjda med Als insats på vår sommarfest idag! Det var VÄLDIGT uppskattat av våra medarbetare, och det var så himla roligt att han gjort lite research på vår hemsida innan och skämtade om det (plus det jag skrev i infon till dig), det kändes verkligen som att han körde detta speciellt för oss 😊 Väldigt imponerande att han kunde köra 20 minuter helt utan att se reaktionerna från publiken osv., väldigt proffsigt!
