Biography

Bergen, Norway

Ylvis is a variety show group from Bergen, Norway, consisting of the two brothers Bård Ylvisåker (born 1982) and Vegard Ylvisåker (born 1979). The brothers originated from Sogn, but grew up in Bergen and Africa.

The brothers debuted professionally on 19 October 2000 at the Ole Bull Theater in Bergen with the show “Ylvis – en kabaret” (“Ylvis – a cabaret”). In connection with the show was the song “Rumor says” recorded, pressed as a CD-single, and sold during the show, but was never put out for regular sales.

In 2001, after the Norway tour with “Ylvis - a cabaret”, Ylvis’ main characters performed in the Grieghallen with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert called “Ylvis goes philharmonic”. That same year debuted Bård and Vegard on TV as regular guests in Rune Larsen’s “Absolutt Norsk” on NRK. In 2002 NRK added Ylvis as an element in Trond-Viggo Torgersens “TVT”.

In 2003, Ylvis guest-starred on the Swedish vocal group The Real Group’s Christmas CD, “Julen er her”.

In the summer of 2004 they sold tickets worth 4.8 million NOK for the show “Ylvis – en konsert” (“Ylvis – a concert”), which played in Tønsberg, Norway. In this concert Ylvis covered Ole Ivars’s song, “I kjempeform” (I’m in great shape). The song was popular with audiences and Ylvis recorded a music video for it. When rower Olaf Tufte won Olympic gold at the Olympics 2004 in Athens, he yelled “Ylvis” and sang “I kjempeform, I kjempeform!” during the victory dance.
