Jón Magnús Árnarsson: Champion

Born 1982. Comes from a theatrical family, graduated in acting and performance at The Commedia School in Copenhagen. Founder of the Goldengang Comedy, which hosts popular stand-ups in English. One of the artistic directors of the Reykjavík Fringe Festival. He appears in film, television, radio, theater and commercials. Former rapper and Icelandic slam poetry champion. His first stage play Tvískinnungur [Dualism], performed at the Reykjavík City Theater in 2018, was praised as the most original dramatic debut of recent years - the partially rhyming text flowing on the wave of slam poetry describes a brutal, partially autobiographical story of a power struggle between two acting colleagues - lovers and opponents.
