Sometimes the best way to deal with all of the kak that goes on in South Africa is to laugh about it. That is something that’s going to be a whole lot easier thanks to the efforts of some of our finest nominees and winners from the recent Comic’s Choice Awards. The first Winner’s Lap show promises to be a brilliant line-up featuring: Dillan Oliphant, Tats Nkonzo and Sifiso Nene, along with Robby Collins, Mpho Popps Modikoane, Jason and Donovan Goliath and Monique Nortje.
These peeps are pretty much the future of SA comedy and they’ll be making sure you leave with abs of steel from laughing too much.
“As everyone knows, comedy has grown exponentially over the last few years, with the big acts getting huge amounts of coverage and attention. In the spirit of the awards, we decided to create an opportunity for the comics who are still rising up the ranks to play a beautiful big venue, and so we booked the Lyric for them,”
says Keiron Whitemore, who works on the awards.
“Of course, everyone expects us to feature the winners in all the categories – but they often have more than enough work, so we felt it would be great to feature the freshest talent – that’s why this particular line-up was assembled.”
The show will include nominees from the Newcomer, and the BlackBerry Breakthrough Award categories, as well as the Recipient of the Audience Choice Award, and the headliners of each half will be the award recipients in each category. The Comics Choice Awards Winners Lap Showcase is at the Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City,
It’s on December 7th and 8th – Book now at Computicket.
