Biography


Ylvis is a comedy duo from Bergen, consisting of brothers Bard Ylvisaker and Vegard Ylvisaker. They grew up in Africa where their father was an engineer during the civil wars. Upon their return to Norwegia, the two brothers were enrolled to study classical instruments but they quickly quit.

Instead, Brad focused on vocals, comedy, and acrobatics such as aerial silk. Vegard, meanwhile, traded double bass with guitar while learning vocals and comedy. Together, they polished their skills by taking part in various school variety shows and choir until they were spotted by impresario Peter Brandt.
