I live in Copenhagen and perform all over the world.

The Danish Bagpipe Comedian - Claus ReissMy brand of comedy is clean and unpretentious with a musical twist using the bagpipe which I have been playing since 1998 (not continuously!).

I have been working (or blowing) as a bagpipe comedian for a living since 2007 with approx. 150 performances a year.

I perform at the world’s biggest comedy festival, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe every year.


2019: Comedy tour in Holland.

2017: Shows in Mallorca at hotels. A part of the 2017 Romantic Corporate Showcase.

2016: Performed at the Luxembourg Comedy Festival including a kids show.

2015: My second international one-man show ‘Return of the Danish Bagpipe Comedian’ at the Edinburgh Fringe. Alan Morrison from the Herald wrote “laugh-out-loud funny” and “brilliant at handling the audience” in his review.

2013: My first international one-man show ‘A Danish Bagpipe Comedian’ got one review only – a 4/5 star review from the festival magazine ThreeWeeks.

2012: I won the World Championships in Glasgow for Solo Piping (grade 2). In 2015 I won the Scandinavian Championship in the piobaireachd event.

And finally I was the first person in the world to do a parachute jump in a kilt while playing the bagpipe. See the interview from the Danish national TV channel DR here
