In a direct comparison between "Klovn" and "Extras" I would choose the latter every time - but I have had quite a few good laughs from "Klovn".
My Personal all time favourite installation in Danish humour is still "The Julekalender" (old school - I know), but that is a personal preference and one that is almost impossible to convey into English (even though the language spoken in it is a kind of Danish-pidgin english).
I didn't mean to imply, Frank Hvam's (?) role in Klovn was equal to Karl Pilkingtons. Karl Pilkington only had a few scenes. But as you rightly said, Klovn has an Extra vibe and Frank Hvam appears to be a Karl Pilkington type of character. With Casper being Ricky.
I've only watched a few episodes so far .. via YT, but it's on a torrent and downloading as we speak
PS You have seen 'Idiot Abroad', yes?
