GET ready for another night of hilarious stand-up comedy entertainment at Butler’s Restaurant Hillcrest, Friday, October 13.

This month award-winning comedian, movie-star and writer, Rob van Vuuren, on tour from Cape Town, will be in town. The show will be hosted by one of Durban’s funniest – the unstoppable Neil Green.

Also included in the line-up are popular funny men, Rory Petzer (East Coast Radio) as well as Andrew Hughes.

Rob van Vuuren cut his teeth in the mid to late 90s (after graduating from Rhodes University) as an actor specialising in physical theatre with a natural talent for physical comedy.

To this day, Rob’s stand-up is characterised by absurd, surreal, and disturbingly hilarious physical interpretations of situations and characters.

In the year 2 000 Rob teamed up with an obnoxiously talented, tall person Louw Venter and the proud couple promptly gave birth to Corne and Twakkie and The Most Amazing Show - a cult phenomenon in South Africa spawning two unforgettable seasons of an award winning television series, 1 000s of indescribably insane live shows and a legion of rabid fans who have made a considerable dent in the South African lexicon.

Rob’s first full length one man stand–up comedy show (Rob van Vuuren is Rob van Vuuren, 2008) was nominated as the one man show of the year and also picked up the Nando’s Breakthrough Act Award at the 2008 National Arts Festival.

Rob has most recently added two Standard Bank Ovation Awards to his collection of shiny baubles for his second one man show, the aptly titled ‘Rob van Vuuren – Live’ and the groundbreaking comedy variety show ‘Pants on Fire”.

Powered by On Fire Comedy at Butler’s Restaurant (24 Old Main Rd, Hillcrest) commencing at 8.30pm. For information or bookings contact 031 765 3850;;


The Hillcrest Fever and On Fire Comedy will be giving away five double tickets to the show. To win log on to the Hillcrest Fever Facebook page, like the page and comment with your email address. Competition closes on Friday, September 29. T&C’s apply.
