Rants with Pants Episode 5

Still no joy. Still no effing joy at getting this thing to submit and verify with iTunes. Do I give up? No. Do I have to fork out money?  Yes. Recorded in my car on my way to my buddy Gareth Allison's house for his internet wisdom and skills. Sadly it's still not resolved. Anyway. … Continue reading Rants with Pants Episode 5

Jim Jefferies Live in South Africa.

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.

How long before #bucknorris takes over #entertheninja on youtube for number of hits? Tough break Waddy!

In the past year or two. It was Die Antwoord who seemed to have racked up the largest number of hits on youtube by South Africans. Seems all of Waddy's hard work is about to be eclipsed by a red hartebeest.

I heartily look forward to the World Cup. Especially if its fairly quiet.

The roads are nearly done. The years of waiting in traffic and watching monuments to FIFA's ego and perhaps our ignorance has been entralling and something special. Then again, so was being in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. But if the expected masses do not arrive.  At worst we are not exactly losing that much … Continue reading I heartily look forward to the World Cup. Especially if its fairly quiet.

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. "Hey Martin, … Continue reading I say comedy, you immediately think of chocolates, cellular networks and insurance right?

Cape Town is currently running stand up comedy nights all through the week.

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 … Continue reading Cape Town is currently running stand up comedy nights all through the week.

Nobody has done a worse Afrikaans cover than Jim Reeves. Try work out what he means to say…I challenge you!

When I first heard Jim Reeves' attempt at "Ek verlang na jou" a few years back...I nearly shat myself with laughter.  I can understand why he did it, and why the promoters behind it were involved.  But surely someone could have guided him through the lyrics sheet a wee bit better. Jim Reeves was out … Continue reading Nobody has done a worse Afrikaans cover than Jim Reeves. Try work out what he means to say…I challenge you!
