Former mayor of Reykjavík and world famous comedian, politician and humanitarian, Jón Gnarr, was recently on The Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Check out the whole interview below.
After the interview with Ferguson, Jón posted this on his Facebook page:
"My talk with Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. :) Had really much fun with him. Forgot to tell him that Devil in Icelandic is Andskoti. Literally means: Anti Scottish If you don't like Scotland your are Satan. Makes sense :) Thanks Craig and enjoy the rest of the book. You're gonna looove the next one! 24:00"
Jón was amongst other things introducing his new book - Gnarr: How I Became the Mayor of a Large City in Iceland and Changed the World.
It all started when Jón Gnarr founded the Best Party in 2009 to satirize his country’s political system. The financial collapse in Iceland had, after all, precipitated the world-wide meltdown, and fomented widespread protest over the country’s leadership.
Entering the race for mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland’s capital, Gnarr promised to get the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park into downtown parks, free towels at public swimming pools, a “drug-free Parliament by 2020” . . . and he swore he’d break all his campaign promises.
Before Jón Gnarr, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who stars as Mitchell Pritchett in Modern Family was on the set.
