Meet Laughing Viking: Lars Classington
"MORE FUN IN '21!"
I've spent the last 10 years of my life working as an actor, comedian and creator helping dreamers turn delusions to REALITY!
In 2009, I found myself working 70+ hrs/week in financial services feeling burnt out, unmotivated and unfulfilled with a nagging knowing that I wasn't living in my highest purpose.
So I made a decision to lean into my dreams of working in tv, film & comedy.
First, I answered a Craigslist ad "So You Wanna Be a Comedian?" which led to an exhilarating standup comedy debut at YukYuks in London, Ontario.
Standup quickly led to improv, sketch and dinner theatre gigs.
In 2012, I moved to Toronto to pursue standup and acting full-time as a professional.
Some Highlights So Far:
5 episodes as "Lou The Main Man Handy" on the kids comedy "Oh Yuck!" (NETFLIX)
20 episodes on the sketch comedy series "Almost Genius" (CMT CANADA)
Lead role in an episode of "Fear Thy Neighbor" (DISCOVERY)
Working with Jason Momoa on his epic series "SEE" (APPLE+)
In 2017, I Laughing Vikings, a live comedy & digital media production company to help dreamers like me turn their own delusions to reality!
Laughing Vikings produces live comedy & theatre shows, tv, film, commercials and podcasts.
We've helped hundreds of actors craft professional auditions and book dozens of tv, film and theatre roles.

"Wonderful experience and great people! The lighting and sound is amazing! So much better than fighting with my husband about his lack of reading skills and trying to set up my phone on a pile of books while gathering every light that 's portable! haha! So great to be introduced to Laughing Vikings and have a safe space to play :)"
