Klovn (“Clown”) is a Danish sitcom, which first aired on the Danish TV channel TV2 Zulu. It focuses on the life of the main character Frank (played by Frank Hvam) and Casper (played by Casper Christensen). The show builds its comedy around quiet everyday situations, social awkwardness, uncomfortable silences and general faux pas. Klovn shares many concepts with the American sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm by Larry David, notably the main concept of a semi-retired comedian encountering humorous and embarrassing situations, along with his wife, friends and celebrity acquaintances. The show is also held in a pseudo-realistic style, where a first-time viewer might be in doubt of whether or not the show is staged. Even the score is similar. In spite of this, in its closing credits, the show is claimed to be an original idea by Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam. The sitcom consists of 60 episodes spread over 6 seasons, each episode lasting 25 minutes. The sixth season aired between 23 February and 27 April 2009. On 16 December 2010, Klown, a movie based on the series but with an original plotline, was released, with a sequel released in 2015 entitled Klown Forever.
