“Linköping har verkligen blivit en roligare stad med LKPG HA HA!”
CCCCC - Corren - 5 maj 2016 

LKPG HA HA! first burst onto the Linköping scene in 2008. Over a decade the club grew from playing in small cafés to a monthly night at Konsert o Kongress and a weekly night at The Crypt. As well as a comedy festival that began in 2016. Hundreds of Swedish and International comedians have entertained thousands of people over the years. 

Currently on ice, LKPG HA HA! and Ben Kersley can still help you book a comedian or put on a comedy night in English or Swedish.

With a decade of experience,  access to a large local mailing list, active social media and a network of students ready to put up posters, Ben can also help promote your event in Linköping. Just get in touch!
