I was one of a select few media, who was invited to a preview of Comedian Robby Collins‘ one man show called “Son of Carol” a few days ago. In case you didn’t know, the Goliath and Goliath Comedy Club now also has an additional venue in Braamfontein, in Johannesburg, downstairs at the Bannister Hotel, and this was the venue for the showcase.
In medieval times, a jester was employed by a nobleman or monarch to entertain him and his guests. The heavyweights of South African comedy are by no means jesters, but they certainly do entertain… Catch the Kings & Queens of Comedy at the Sandton Convention Centre on Friday, 21 July for a show of hysterical proportions.
Shining their comical armour and sharpening their witty swords for the night, the stellar line-up of comedy giants includes Joey Rasdien (MC), Khanyisa Bunu, Krijay Govender, Mark Banks, Mpho Popps, Muthu Murugan, Ndumiso Lindi, Rob van Vuuren, Tracey-Lee Oliver, Trevor Gumbi and Tumi Morake.
From the producer of Shrek The Musical and twelve sold-out award winning pantomimes, KickstArt Productions bring you Puss in Boots, a swashbuckling spectacular for the whole family. Live at The Lyric Theatre from Friday, 30 June until Sunday, 23 July 2017, this rendition of Puss in Boots is a variation of the original tale.
I’m a fan of cruise liners – I won a Mediterranean cruise in 1997 and also done the Durban – Portuguese Islands in Mozambique – Durban route, about 5 years ago. Cruising is an all-in-one combo – you get the food, drinks, accommodation, entertainment and fun in the sun and sand! And with Oh Ship! the cherry on top is that you get 72 hours of some of South Africa’s top DJs and comedians, to keep you entertained, while you sip on our sangria.
The elastic-faced king of clean comedy, Barry Hilton, will be taking to the spectacular Silverstar Centre’s stage with his freshest, ultra-funny and slick production, Evolver.
On stage for two nights only, 28 and 29 October 2016, Evolver will see the vibrant Hilton showcasing new material, reaffirming exactly why South Africans consider him to be one of our country’s most relevant comedians.
Hilton’s genuinely funny bones, his uncanny ability to gauge a crowd, and his firm stance on keeping comedy “clean” for the last 30 years, makes Evolver a must-see show for die-hard comedy fans and those who simply want to be left breathless with laughter alike.
At only R150 a ticket, Silverstar Casino has ensured that fans have no reason to miss out on Evolver, a show best described as a dynamic and versatile masterpiece.
Tickets are available for purchase from Computicket.

It seems like Lip Sync Battle (LSB) has taken the world by storm. Already in season 2 in the USA, the entertaining show entails two celebrities “battling” it out for the LSB champ belt, by miming to well known songs. The audience determines the winner by how loudly they cheer. It’s all fun and games on LSB, and very “tongue in cheek” when it comes to the celebrity feuds, as they provoke each other in the rounds of two songs each.
I am a fan of Real Husbands of Hollywood, a show that can best be described as a mockumentary & parody of similar titles in the “reality” genre. It features Kevin Hart in the lead, playing a version of himself, together with his best friends in Tinsel Town, all hustling their way to the top of the entertainment food chain, with Kevin’s character always trying to one-up his friends, which lead to the creation of the term “mitch” (male b$%*h).
