En komikers uppväxt is a 1992 novel by Swedish writer Jonas Gardell.[1][2]

The novel was the basis of a 1992 Swedish TV miniseries in three parts, also called En komikers uppväxt.

On 13 April 2000,[clarification needed] the book was given as a gift from the National Agency for Education, Svenska förläggareföreningen and Månpocket to all eighth-grade pupils in Sweden before the World Book Day, which occurred on 23 April, but the giving was done earlier because of Easter.[3]

Recently Gardell adapted his novel into a screenplay for a feature film (English title: My Life as a Comedian), which had its world premiere on 6 September 2019 at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival. The film, directed by Rojda Sekersöz [sv], is set in two time frames, the 1970s and the 2010s (whereas the novel was set in the 1970s from the perspective of the 1990s).[4][5]
