Fans of stand-up comedy are in for a night to remember when Barry Hilton, Mark Banks, Loyiso Gola, Joey Rasdien and Krijay Govender join forces with John Vlismas to present one of the heaviest comedy line-ups of the year, The Comedy Heavies, taking place at Carnival City on 3rd and 4th July. The ‘adults only’ show will deliver more laughs per minute than an election campaign.
The irreverent Vlismas promises that no punches will be pulled as his hilarious friends shower blows on sacred cows from every angle, “We are a limping democracy, wrestling with a credit crunch and facing a world cup with intermittent electricity – if you don’t laugh, you die…”
The Comedy Heavies isn’t just going to be a stand up feast from the cream of comedy, but the comics have been chosen to represent the wide spectrum of comedy styles, from the legendary deadpan of Barry Hilton, to the barking mad characters of Mark Banks and the righteous anger of recently-circumcised Loyiso Gola and the ever popular Joey Rasdien. Even Krijay Govender has taken time for her crazy television schedule to appear in this remarkable production.
The Comedy Heavies is unique – no punches will be pulled, no sacred cows will be left off the braai and there will definitely be no fussing over cussing. The Comedy Heavies is for people who don’t flinch when the “f” word flies faster than airline crews taking narcotics abroad.
Tickets available from Computicket and are priced at R80, R100 and R120.
The Comedy Heavies is a John Vlismas and Sun International presentation at Carnival City.
