Meet Laughing Viking:

Lars Classington

In 2009 I found myself in London, Ontario Canada, 8 years into a corporate career with a nagging knowing that I wasn't following my dreams.

I made a decision to start a life on stage and film as an actor, comedian and creator.

First, I answered a Kijiji ad "So You Wanna Be a Comedian?" resulting in an exhilarating standup debut at YukYuks.

Three months later I was the warmup act for comedy talk show "London Tonight with Jeff Leeson", which expanded to writer, announcer, producer and standup tour opener.

In 2012, I moved to Toronto so I could do standup every night and star working in TV & Film.

Some Highlights So Far:

  • Working with Jason Momoa on his epic series "SEE" (APPLE+)
  • 5 episodes as "Lou The Main Man" on Oh Yuck! (NETFLIX)

  • 20 episodes on sketch comedy show Almost Genius (CMT CANADA)

  • Lead role in Fear Thy Neighbor (DISCOVERY)

  • Recording my debut standup album 'Silly Goose' in my hometown Orillia, ON and releasing it during a global pandemic. 

Laughing Vikings launched in 2017 to produce live comedy, theatre, podcasts, tv & film.

Our mission is to uplift, inspire and empower a global audience of ONE BILLION by helping 1000 actors and comedians create, produce and share their stories through digital video, audio and live events.

CHRIS SANDIFORD

(What We Do In The Shadows, Cavendish, Jack Ryan)

"My go-to spot since moving to Toronto in 2017. Lars and the gang are always the best resource for me when it comes to recording auditions. If you don’t wanna bug your friends, bug them!

DREW SEELEY

"SUCH a great experience. Great quality self tape, great reader, great coaching, great price. Will be my go to place for any auditions that come up in Toronto. Thx guys!"

LORY MPIANA

PAULA MCNEILL

(Schitt's Creek, Titans, Hemlock Grove)

"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 :)"
