Kristopher Schau

Kristopher Schau

Kristopher Hugh Martin Schau (b. 12 August 1970 in Oslo) is a Norwegian musician, TV host, comedian and songwriter.

Schau is known from several radio shows (most of them also with his brother Alexander Schau) including "XL", "Karate", and "Et Norge I Krig". On TV he has benn involved in the shows "XLTV", "Team Antonsen" (2004), and "De 7 dødssyndene" (2007). He has also been part of several bands, among them "Gartnerlosjen", "Hurra Torpedo","Kåper Gjete", "Sinsen", "Reidar Roses Orkester", "Datsun", and "The Cumshots". He is also the writer of the Norwegian underground comic "Margarin" (now discontinued).

One of his projects had him living in a brown Opel Rekord automobile for a whole week. This event was also televised in daily segments. Another one of his projects was "Forfall" (en. "decline"), where Schau devoted an entire week to living as unhealthy as possible. Originally the idea was to decline both physically and mentally, but despite the initial intentions in the mental area (reading books by Norwegian pulp fiction authors), the project mainly circulated around eating unhealthy foods and smoking. He spent the entire week on display in an Oslo shop window. The project was also shown on TV and the internet for the entire week. He gained about 10 kg (22 lbs) and his cholesterol level skyrocketed during the project. He also nearly suffered a heatstroke when the temperature in the shop window display was significantly increased. The heat experiment was then aborted.

In December 2003 Schau was voted Norway's Sexiest Man by the fashion magazine ELLE.

In early 2004, he was one of the four stars of the popular comedy show "Team Antonsen", along with Atle Antonsen, Harald Eia, and Bård Tufte Johansen.

He has been criticized by the media several times. On 24 January 2004 he got the front-page headline in one of Norway's largest newspapers after he showed his penis during an episode of "Team Antonsen": he apparently tried to find out whether dogs could tell the difference between a sausage and the male genitalia (it did not).

During the Quartfestival summer 2004, a couple, who were both members of Fuck For Forest, had sex on stage during a Cumshots concert. This led to a lawsuit against Schau, the other band members and the couple who performed the sex stunt. Schau and his bandmate Ole Petter Andreassen were both fined 10 000 kroner (roughly US$ 1700) for their roles in the stunt.

In September 2004 he sold his soul to Thomas Numme and Harald Rønneberg, hosts of the Norwegian TV show Senkveld (en. "Late Night"), for 18,500 NOK.

He has also been one of the voice actors for the Norwegian movie "Slipp Jimmy fri" ("Free Jimmy").

In 2007, Schau launched his television show, "De 7 dødssyndene", focusing on the seven deadly sins. In the show, Schau attempted to commit all the deadly sins, combined with Schau and his co-hosts, Øystein Karlsen and Morten Ståle Nilsen, presenting information on the history of sin and related subjects. Many Norwegian conservative Christians protested against the program. They organized a petition and a boycott against the show's corporate sponsors, leading to several companies dropping their advertisements.

This did not decrease the show's popularity.
