NEXT month five of South Africa’s most formidable comedians will descend on Port Elizabeth for The Big 5 Comedy Show at the Boardwalk International Convention Centre.

In the star-studded line-up are Barry Hilton, Jason Goliath, Stuart Taylor, Joey Rasdien and Nik Rabinowitz, together with the legendary DJ Ready D rocking the decks.

The Big 5 Comedy Show has been a comedy sensation both in Cape Town and Johannesburg and its debut in PE is not to be missed.

“South Africa’s big five comics all on one stage for one night only. Brace yourself for the funniest show of the year and the biggest laughs you’ll have this winter,” said Siphokazi Ngombane, PR and Promotions Manager at The Boardwalk.

With sets that are never vulgar, malicious or mean of spirit, but always funny, Hilton is known to several generations as a gentleman comic and a master craftsman with flawless timing.

Goliath is a larger than life comedian with a commanding stage presence and ridiculous amounts of energy. He has the uncanny ability to make his audiences laugh at life’s uncomfortable truths.

Taylor, well-known for his role as presenter on SABC’s travel show, Going Nowhere Slowly, is renowned for his fusion of comedy and magic.

Over the years, he has performed locally and abroad at major comedy festivals and his comedy productions, such as Learner Husband, Techni-Coloured and Money’s too Tight To Mention, have sold out at venues around South Africa.

Rated one of South Africa’s comedic heavyweights, Rasdien is a seasoned television actor and also a star of several local films.

His characteristic style of understating the social, political, moral and ethical questions facing everyone today in his effortless way has made him a favourite among comedy fans.

Lastly, Rabinowitz, who refers to himself as the ‘world’s leading Xhosa-speaking Jewish comedian’, has been a staple on the local comedy scene for years. He has successfully produced a string of one-man shows.

These five funny personalities will come together for The Big 5 Comedy Show at the Boardwalk ICC on June 10 at 8pm.

Tickets from R150 are available at Computicket. The show is rated 16 and older.
