BALLITO will be served a carnival-sized helping of hilarious stand-up comedy when the first ever Ballito Comedy Carnival hits town in September!

The biggest ever comedy event in Ballito, the Ballito Comedy Carnival, taking place from 30 September to 2 October at the La Montagne Resort, features legendary funny men Marc Lottering and Mark Banks, who will be supported by a string of top local acts, as well as comics on tour from JHB and Cape Town.

Cape Comedy icon, Marc Lottering, has thrilled comedy audiences for years with his signature style of storytelling, enjoying widespread acclaim with his box office hit shows “From the Cape Flats with Love”, “I Don’t Work on Sundays” and most recently “Hashtag Lottering”.

He has played the biggest stages in the country and toured internationally, entertaining audiences in London, Australia and Dubai.

Equally accomplished is SA comedy legend, Mark Banks, winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards last year.
This is the man who has had South Africa “ripped” with his tell-it-like-it-is, in-your-face brand of comedy, offering a unique, often sarcastic-laden, perspective on current affairs and issues that really cause us bother.

Also participating in the Carnival of Funny is Durban’s own Neville Pillay - a firm favourite in KZN, this hilarious stand-up comedian, accomplished writer and actor (‘Attack of the Indian Werewolf’, ‘31 Million Reasons’ , ‘Curry And Vice’), and award-winning morning radio show host is practically a household name.

Comedy goers can also look forward to the mirth-laden antics of Kelvin Stoffels, Arnotte Payne, Khanyisa Bhunu (JHB), Masood Boomgaard, Gino Fernandez (CPT), Devin Gray (CPT), Jem Atkins and Neil Green, who will all feature over the weekend.

The Ballito Comedy Carnival is a celebration of all things funny and is not to be missed. Tickets are R120 and are available from Computicket and Checkers.
