Wow. How times change.
A couple of months ago, there was basically nothing in Cape Town. A cool enough gig in town on a Monday, and that was about it.
Now we are seeing a rising rush of comedy all over the greater cape. This is good. Very good.
Not because the comedy is per se, but due to the fact that it gives us the acts a chance to really lift our game. Write new material and be performing it regularly enough to be able to actually tweak it. Ive been out of action for months. Frankly I wasn’t excited at all to return to the world of Cape Stand Up. I was doing it I think to make some cash. Never a good idea.
But this week has seen me doing five different comedy gigs. Im feeling funny, Im writing new material, and Im getting a chance to show it to a range of audiences, and not just some goofed lighties in Long Street. (although i do like the goofed lighties all the same)
I will post a list of the gigs currently running shortly. But first, I need some sushi.
