Netflix announced the date on Facebook, playing on a joke of Ari’s by writing, “We have the best comedians in the world – per capita! Prepare to LOL when Arni Eldjárn’s comedy special ‘Pardon My Icelandic’ drops December 2nd.”
Meanwhile, on his own Facebook page, Ari described the news as a dream come true: “A distant dream becomes reality on 2 December when my English standup show ‘Pardon my Icelandic’ premieres on Netflix! Stay tuned!”
