In the Army Now

In the Army Now

A trigger-happy war enthusiast, a spoiled high school graduate, a competitive psychopath and a wannabe gangster. Could these really protect Norway from invasion?

In In the Army Now, comedian Herman Flesvig plays several characters who are all faced with the weary demands of compulsory military service.

The short-format comedy show set a first-day rating record on NRK’s on-demand service when it was published.
