the fugard fest of comedy

Sensational Funny Man Alan Committie heads up and hosts a star-studded comedy line-up as the Fugard Theatre proudly presents its very first Fugard fest of Comedy, from 29 November to 17 December.

Alan and his Comedy Committee of Rob van Vuuren, Carmen Maarman, Hope Maimane and Jo Galloway will treat audiences to a three-week festive frolic on the Fugard Theatre Stage. In a deliciously hilarious comedy revue romp, this team of many talents reflects on a long 2011, and is sure to have audiences laughing well into 2012.

In the spirit of holiday season overindulgence, the Comedy Committee will be joined every night by yet another funny friend, in a line-up that will see the cream of the comedy crop gracing the Fugard stage. Mark Banks joins the ranks for the first week, and will be up to his usual uncontrollable madcap antics from 29 November to 3 December, an additional 17h00 show has been added to Saturday 3 December. Skirting around relatively taboo topics with charm and ease, comedy doctor Riaad Moosa will split your sides and keep you in stitches at the same time, when he joins the gang for the 6th, 7th and 10th December. During the final week, 12 to 17 December, Stuart Taylor brings his intelligent comedy magic to the mix to round off a fantastic season of laughs.

Get there early enough to enjoy a “happy hour” at the Fugard Theatre bar and the spectacular rooftop terrace before each night’s performance of the Comedy Fest. Daily drinks specials will be on offer between 18h00 and 19h00 – a perfect way to end a stressful day and a great way to start your evening of laughs!
