THE ultra-classy Ian von Memerty once more teams up with the unashamed Philistine from De Aar, Gino Fabbri, for another outrageous session of Common and Class on December 23.

These two riotously hilarious and versatile performers will bring their laugh-a-minute clash of cultures to The Boardwalk this festive season, which promises to have the audience rolling on the floor and rocking in the aisles.

The uncommon combustible clash of breeding and culture pits drummer-comedian Fabbri’s dynamic drumming and guitar-playing against Von Memerty’s pyrotechnic piano-ism, resulting in a roller-coaster of musical contradictions.

Their mismatched machinations see ‘the ‘battle of the twits’ moving effortlessly from rock to Rocky Horror, Boeremusiek to Broadway and country to classical, even sharing a master class on how not to look sexy on the dance floor along the way.

Class musters all the self-control he can as he is dragged kicking and screaming through Country cowboyland, while the finer expressions of classical music whistle past Common like tumbleweed trundling through a deserted town. The confusion of Ian’s stuck-up Class being forced to work with the dimwitted but moronically enthusiastic Common is the backbone to a show that brings belly laugh after belly laugh.

Common and Class will be staged at The Boardwalk Amphitheatre on December 23 at 19:30. Tickets at R140 are available from Computicket, and pensioners’ discounts are available through Wendy at 082 661 6921.
