STAND-UP comedian Chris Forrest will share the funny side of fatherhood at the Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom iZulu Theatre on 6 June.

Audiences can expect up-to-the minute laughs as Forrest shares his experiences on becoming a father, from pregnancy to the birth to looking after an infant.

His show, Who’s Your Daddy, takes a hilarious look at what really happens when a baby arrives, and how to deal with it.

“This is a must-see for anyone hoping to become a parent, or who is a parent or who knows a parent,” says Belinda Jelf, Sibaya marketing manager.

Often touted as South Africa’s answer to Steven Wright (the poker-faced star of American stand-up), Forrest has been at the forefront of SA comedy for over a decade.

A regular performer on South Africa’s premier comedy show The Heavyweight Comedy Jam, and the token white guy on Blacks Only Show, Forrest is known for his unique, dry sense of humour and super-quick thinking.

He has graced the stage of top venues across the country – and the world – including the Lyric Theatre in West End London to huge acclaim.

That wasn’t his only international exposure as he was chosen to perform at the Edinburgh Festival in 2003 and 2005 to sell-out crowds, and was given the opportunity to work at various comedy clubs in and around London. Tickets to Who’s Your Daddy available at Computicket and from the Sibaya box office at R120 per person. The show carries an age restriction of 13.
