It’s Been A While With Jono Duffy
20:00, Tjarnarbíó, 2,900 ISK
Iceland’s only gay Australian comedian Jono Duffy is back with a new show. “Imagine that you and I were out drinking and I took you back to my place for an after party, where I shared all the stories from the last year or so,” he said about it. “Basically, it’s a drunken catch-up in reverse.” And the past year has, admittedly, been a doozy for the performer. “I attempted to get a TV show on the air, went to visit my family in Australia to introduce them to my (very) French boyfriend, and signed up for a half-marathon after doing almost no exercise for four years,” says Jono, laughing. “I also did a lot of soul searching and realised that I will always be a somewhat charming cynical douchebag who’s just plodding along in the crazy industry we call show business.” Warming up will be the incomparable power lesbian Kimi Tayler. Tickets are 2,900 ISK and you can buy them here.

Life, as it is lived, before the transformation
Until September 1st, National Museum Of Iceland
In stark black and white, Yrsa Roca Fannberg captured life in Árneshreppur, the smallest parish in Iceland. Crisp and unrelenting, the photos capture the symbiotic relationship between man, animal and dirt. The exhibit opens today, but you can catch it Tuesday to Sundays from 10:00 to 17:00 until September 1st.
