Having started rather modestly with a small show at the Comedy Zoo in Copenhagen, Danish Comedy Aid this year celebrates its 25th anniversary not just with shows at major venues in Copenhagen and Aarhus, but at the Comedy Store in London too. Among the numerous leading Danish comedians to take to the stage is co-host of the show Carsten Bang, who is also an ambassador for Save the Children Denmark. “The average war lasts 17 years. That’s a whole childhood that’s gone if you’re born at the start of a war. That’s why we have a responsibility to help, especially the children,” says Bang.
