Coming to GrandWest Arena Cape Town, July 28th 2012
“Mass Hysteria” is what South Africans are best at,” says co-producer John Vlismas, “whether it’s a penis or a march, we love a reason to scream and shout, so when we were let down by an event organizer, we decided to take charge and do the shows ourselves.”
A top comedy line up has been assembled for the shows, which debut at the Teatro at Montecasino, Johannesburg, July 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th before heading to GrandWest Arena, Cape Town July 28th.
In a shock move, solo artist, Casper de Vries, joins Cape Town favorites Nik Rabinowitz, Marc Lottering, Kurt Schoonraad and Ndumiso Lindi with Tumi Morake, Mark Banks and John Vlismas to create the most outrageous and brilliant stand-up show ever seen in SA.
Seeing as our current national leadership is behaving like a joke, the show is themed on Cabinet, with each comic having a portfolio:
- Nik Rabinowitz – Minister of Samp and Kosher Beans
- Marc Lottering – Minister of the Interior Design.
- Kurt Schoonraad – Minister of Flats, Boxwine and Wind
- John Vlismas – Minister who swears to tell Truth.
- Tumi Morake – Minister of International Affairs and Pan African Children.
- Ndumiso Lindi – Roosta in Chief.
- Mark Banks – Minister of Environment, Bungalows, Pest Control and Barcodes.
- Casper De Vries – Minister VanTwitter
“The great thing about this show is that there is no middle man, so the line-up is amazing, but the ticket prices are not high, and the acts are all on bonus structures,” says Whacked partner, Taffia Keight. “We’re interested in keeping the artist’s rights intact, as there have been problems in the recent past, and we feel that going forward, it is important that the organizers don’t end up taking the lion’s share – after all, no one has ever asked for an organizer’s autograph” laughs Keight.
“Casper has never been part of a line-up show, and we are very excited that he has joined the other headliners for this run. It’s not often that you get a line-up where every single artist has a big following, and we feel that this line-up is providing excellent quality at the price.”
