About Joachim

I am a danish actor and have done sketches and worked on tv-series on all the major TV stations in Denmark (IMDB).

I played main characters in the tv-series Nyt fra Jylland (DR2) and Kødkataloget (DR3), and different characters in various other tv-series and featurefilms.  I have also written, directed and played main characters in more than 100 sketches for DR2, Ramasjang Radio, DR.dk, P3 and TV2 Zulu.

I have studiet method acting at Holberg School of Theatre and Film acting in Copenhagen for 3 years and at Escola Técnica de Artes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  I also have a master degree in Mediastudies from The University of Copenhagen.

Apart from my acting career I am part of a Comedy Duo, which has written and played the main characters in the tv series “Nyt fra Jylland”.  We have also toured Denmark with a 70 minute liveshow called HOLD HOLD HOLD Tour.

I also work as an actor in communication training and forum theatre.

I am a member of The Danish Actors Association.
