Afrikaans comedy heavyweights come together

Afrikaans comedy heavyweights come together

Two of the big role players in the Afrikaans theatre industry have put their heads together to create a new production that promises a laugh a minute. Giep van Zyl (GZ Productions) and Kosie Smit (Kosie House of Theatre) will bring an unusual comedy extravaganza to the Big Top Arena at Carnival City on November 10. This will be the first production of its kind in Afrikaans.

‘Grooot Grap!’ (Big Joke!) will run for a full 120 minutes and will consist of a mix of comedy sketches, stand-up comedy and musical comedy, all done by well-known Afrikaans entertainers. Johan Hendriksz (presenter of ‘Skerp’ on kykNet) will be the Master of Ceremonies and the cast includes Lizz Meiring (‘Mollie & Wors’ and countless other productions); Frank Opperman (‘Rooikaart’, Ouboet in ‘Orkney Snork Nie’); Hannes (‘Groet die Grotman’) Muller; well known comic Mark Banks; Karen Wessels (‘Hester & Ester Bester’, ‘Groet die Grotvrou’); Thys die Bosveldklong; Melt Sieberhagen (‘Proesstraat’, ‘Superhelde’); Hannes (‘Binneland’) Brümmer; Piet Potgieter (Vodacom Funny Festival); talented guitar duo CH2 and the musical farce of the group ‘STOK’.
