RISING star of South African comedy, Alfred Adriaan, will deliver his solo debut special, Dating Life, at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Port Elizabeth Marine on November 30 and December 1.

Adriaan has shot through the ranks of local comedy, garnering no fewer than five coveted Savanna Comics Choice Awards nominations in four years and invitations to perform in New York City and Sydney.

This first outing chronicles his formative years in the town of Hankey, his calamitous transition to the relative metropolis of Johannesburg and the dating of its residents.

Spoiled, handicapped children, awkward sexual encounters and drunk potential parents-in-law all conspire to wreak havoc on this bright and humble odd-ball’s twenties and thirties.

The audience will get a blow by blow account, laid out in hysterical detail and delivered in the loveable, frenzied and incredible style quickly taking Adriaan to the top of the comedy heap.

Add to the difficulty of finding the ultimate partner – pressure from a concerned family, mounting as friends marry themselves off like lemmings heading for a cliff, as his mother sets the bar impossibly high for any woman brave enough to attempt it. Just when this walking sitcom seems doomed, enter “the one”.

Dating Life is a must see for single and married couples. A great night out for adults with a wicked sense of humour and some life experience.

It will be staged at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Port Elizabeth Marine on November 30 and December 1 at 20:00. The doors open at 19:30. Dating Life’s age restriction is 16.

Tickets at R100 per adult and R80 per pensioner and students are available from Computicket.
