Some comics just get it right. Jim has been doing just that for years now. I first got the chance to gig with him back in the UK in 2006 and loved his work. I prefer my comics to say it as it is. Jim does just that. Jim shot to prominence over a bloody … Continue reading Jim Jefferies Live in South Africa.
Just found an old video that a few comedians made about this great city. The Brief? have a moan about Cape Town. Not an easy thing to do. I can tell you.
Nothing. Nothing happened at all.
On Saturday I had the privilege of flying up to Johannesburg to attend the Comics Choice Awards at the Teatro Theatre at Montecasino. It was quite the grand affair to be honest. Many of the comics putting on their best suits and what-nots and making quite the effort. I wasn't going to make it at … Continue reading Review: The Comics Choice Awards. English may be dead. Long live the Vernac.
Right then. I haven't been in Durban for a comedy gig in what feels like ages. So with that in mind, I spoke with some of the Durban promoters and I will be coming up to do a few gigs at the end of the month. But if you cannot make them. I get it. … Continue reading Are you in Durban? Im going to be performing up there shortly.
I think I have been to pretty much every festival in South Africa over the past few years. Stand up comedy has fast cemented itself into the framework of the bigger music festivals. Quite often we are doing the festivals for ulterior motives. As in we the comics enjoy them too. So why not at … Continue reading Biffy Clyro at Ramfest 2014
I see a lot of these “open letters” out there these days. I often wonder what the purpose of them are. I think the time has come for me to try it. Why now? Because frankly this is all becoming unsustainable. I am going to break down my career for you. This is by no … Continue reading This is basically an “open letter” to you all, pleading for your support.

People really go proper mental when the weather turns in South Africa. I awoke this morning to news that the country in blanketed in snow and many of the roads are closed. When we immigrated in 1981, we got stuck in a big snowstorm in Johannesburg. First time it had snowed in like 21 years. … Continue reading Stuck in Durban. No, stuck sounds negative. I am currently “weather inconvenienced” due to road closures.
One thing comics do like no others, is drive about and bitch to each other of all the ill's and woe's of this comedy industry. From what acts we like through to whose' girlfriend slept with who. It can be facinating and all too ego fuelled at the same time. I started listening to Marc … Continue reading A word of advice for South African Comics. Do yourself a favour & listen to @marcmaron podcast #WTF

I am not trying to romanticise the concept of essentially being homeless whilst persuing a career of gigs around the country. But in terms of how much fun and enjoyment … Continue reading Im trying to move to Joburg, but what really is home?
