U.S. Trailer For ‘Klown Forever’ Heralds the Return of Danish Depravity

Klown Forever

It’s hard to believe it’s already been over a half-a-decade since the Danish dark comedy Klown was first released. After enjoying a festival run and release here — in which it rightfully earned acclaim for its Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque awkwardness and depravity — the duo have returned. Klown Forever, a follow-up from the original team of director Mikkel Nørgaard and writers / stars Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen, will be released this fall and the U.S. trailer has now landed.

As we said in our review, “Those familiar with the off-kilter comedic duo behind the Danish TV series Klown (or Klovn as it is known in Denmark) — which spurned one of the most hilarious and inappropriate feature films of recent years — will know exactly what type of humor to expect from their sequel Klovn Forever. Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen star essentially as parodies of themselves in this Curb Your Enthusiasm-style comedy, combining mundane issues from their personal lives with some extremely outlandish situations. They push the boundaries of what is considered appropriate with their off kilter brand of humor, falling into categories that are intentionally offensive — such as misogyny and even racism. But therein lies the appeal: in these playful antics, here considered nonchalant, do we as an audience find humor in how outrageous and disrespectful they can be.”

Check out the trailer below, which includes our quote.

Klown Forever follows estranged best friends Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as they travel to the States seeking fame, fortune and friendship, only to immediately dive head-first into an impressive array of wildly inappropriate misadventures and unforgettably mortifying social situations.

When Casper attempts to break into Hollywood, Frank follows him to Los Angeles, seeing an opportunity to salvage their strained relationship. As the guys come face-to-face with a number of LA’s denizens-including Isla Fisher, Adam Levine and “Game of Thrones'” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau-it’s clear that they’re equally ready and willing to take on Hollywood…but is Hollywood prepared for Casper and Frank?

A reunion with Klown director Mikkel Nørgaard, Klown Forever sees the series, best described as “Curb Your Enthusiasm” as directed by Lars von Trier, reach ingenious new heights–and stoop to gut-wrenchingly hilarious lows.
