Husband and wife team Geraldine Naidoo and Matthew Ribnick return to Joburg with Monkey Nuts.

Described as an absurd caper from Naidoo’s pen and performed by Ribnick, it continues the duo’s tradition of dishing up comedy with a dollop of satire.

Those who laughed through Hoot and The Chilli Boy won’t want to miss this show. It won the Naledi Theatre Award last year for Best Comedy Performance.

Monkey Nuts is on at The Fringe at The Joburg Theatre complex until December 4.
