Comedy tour in Catalina

2008-07-08 00:00

The Comedy Revolution Tour, billed as “Geographically Africa’s longest, most cutting-edge stand-up tour”, runs from July 10 to 20 at the Catalina Theatre in Wilson’s Wharf.

Featuring three international acts as well as six of SA’s finest comedians, the tour starts in the Cape, continuing along the coast up to KwaZulu-Natal, then to Johannesburg, the Free State and back to Cape Town.

The aim is to develop and unite the comedy scene in South Africa by taking these shows to towns that many performers bypass and staging a stand-up show set at an international standard.

The international acts featured in the show are Glen Bo (recent nominee in the KZN Arts Awards in the “Best Comedian” and who runs comedy shows and clubs in KZN), Martin Evans (winner of numerous new-act awards in the UK), Martin Davis out from the UK (a stand-up veteran), as well as six other acts that rotate on the bills.

These comedians are joined by new acts from around South Africa — Brendan Murry, Marty Kintu, Simmi Areff, Lil Paul and Jan Badenhorst. The tour promoters are Bo and Evans.

• Tickets are R80 (R40 concessions). Buy one, get one free operates on Tuesdays and Sundays. For more information or to book, phone the Catalina Theatre at 031 305 6889. Shows are at 8 pm Tuesday to Saturday and at 2 pm and 6 pm on Sunday.
