Jumping on the #SuzelleDIY bandwagon.

Schalk Bezuidenhout is a funny funny man. We were bored and decided to make a piss-poor parody of the whole #SuzelleDIY youtube phenomena. It's had a few hits and frankly we are capable of a lot higher quality than this. But hey. It took a couple of hours and I got sunburned and drank brandy. … Continue reading Jumping on the #SuzelleDIY bandwagon.

The great chicken holocaust with a secret blend of herbs, spices & apartheid collusion.

I like to eat my KFC naked whilst watching #TopBilling. I run my greasy fingers through my sub-par chest hair or thighs. The hair holds on to the small crystals of fried bread crumb. Leaving me lubed, yet crumbless. Later if the dogs have behaved themselves, I let them lick the remnants off as a … Continue reading The great chicken holocaust with a secret blend of herbs, spices & apartheid collusion.

Entertainers who brand their cars. oooh how they do make me laugh……

I think one of the most embarrasing things on this planet, must be having to drive around town with your name on your car. Showing the world what it is you do. I have always been weary of anything used to "sell yourself" Granted it could be a fairly affordable way of making sure the … Continue reading Entertainers who brand their cars. oooh how they do make me laugh……

ETV and all its nasty cell phone rip off ads. I smell a big smelly jobby here.

I notice that the adverts and game shows on ETV are of the cheapest quality known to video production, taste or neccesity. Being a private commerical channel.  I wonder what they do with the ad time they just cannot sell.  The times when they send out their own business agenda to cash in on the … Continue reading ETV and all its nasty cell phone rip off ads.

So it’s ok to do “Blackface” if you are or Leon Schuster or a “radio” comedian?

Aaah.  Blackface.  The politically incorrect assumption that it is perfectly acceptable to just "blacken up" for a role. Al Jolsen made it famous back in the day.  That day was like 70 years ago though...but here in South Africa it is common today as it was...er during apartheid. We have two particular examples here in … Continue reading So it’s ok to do “Blackface” if you are or Leon Schuster or a “radio” comedian?

I say comedy, you immediately think of chocolates, cellular networks and insurance right?

I get asked a lot when my next gigs are?  Not saying that folks want to watch me, they may just be looking for a chance to avoid my performances. Like I say.  Folks ask questions.  Call me old school, but I truly hate seeing comedy being branded and sold as an event.
