Everyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE Marc Lottering’s brand of comedy. You can read about his previous shows that I have written about here and here. From the time he was an up-and-coming young comedian, when I lived in Cape Town back in the day, we have supported his shows, and he never fails to deliver in tickling one’s funny bones! If you are also a loyal fan, you will know that Marc started out doing shows with various characters, and Aunty Merle from Belgravia Road in Athlone (which is just up the road from where I actually grew up, on the Cape Flats) was one such delightuful and colourful character.
Marc Lottering has always been one of my all time favourtite comedians. He hits the nail on the head with each performance I have ever attended, and I’ve always made sure that, come hell or high water, I make it to his shows when he is in town. So I was “over the moon” to hear that Lottering at the Lyric will take place on Sunday, the 8th of July at The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City at 3pm.
I first met Marc Lottering back in 2009 when I was a Producer for the SABC1 show Spirit Sundae, and I can truly say that he is as down to earth in real life as he is on stage. His latest show has an aviation theme, and the characters that he portrays are cleverly linked to this theme. “This is Captain Lottering Speaking” is currently on at the Pieter Toerien Montecasino Theatre and Studio. Mr Lottering never disappoints in the humour department, you’ll laugh so much, you’ll need tissues for the tears and smudged mascara!
