Casper de Vries: Vark in Hel
CASPER de Vries and his razor sharp satire returns.  In this show he sends up everything under (and above) the sun. No holy cow escapes his tongue. The discussion ranges from public scandals to aunties with ‘cauliflower’ hair dos. The show with an array of audio visual elements stimulates the senses.

TheatreSports is hilarious improvised comedy, it’s the high-octane, non-stop, laugh-a-minute show where you, the audience, decide on the show you’re going to see! It’s pure improvised theatre, performed by two teams of absurdly talented actors.  Each show is a once-off adventure of spontaneously invented scenes, stories and music, based entirely on your suggestions
Every Tuesday @ 8:30pm
R40 – R50
