There is no denying that there is certainly something different about the English sense of humour and sometimes other countries simply do not get it. However, it is also fair to say that England has produced some of the best comedy ever, something which actor Lars Mikkelsen would agree with.
Mikkelsen was talking about learning the English accent, when he explained, "I think my brother and I picked it up from listening to our records of Monty Python. We could recite all of the sketches, all of those funny accents… nothing’s really holy to you, is it?"
He added, "There’s nobody in the world that comes even within a foot of English comedy; it’s by far the best. I think it’s to do with your Victorian identity, it still seems to have a hook on people and that gives you a wall on which to bounce your ball. Sometimes I miss that form, that way of life."
Lars Mikkelsen can next be seen on the big screen, starring with Michelle Fairley in the Mo Ali movie Montana, which was penned by Peter Lowe and Jeremy Sheldon. Montana does not yet have an official release date but we certainly look forward to seeing Lars Mikkelsen on the big screen.
