This Friday and Saturday, August 16 and 17, seven of SA’s best comedians will hit Grand Arena, GrandWest for a show that’s funnier than parliament.
While government ministers shuffle faster than a deck of cards at a swingers party, the only way to describe the general mood in SA’s halls of power is…“Mass Hysteria.” From the chaotic ruins of SA politics rises a new hope. The country’s finest comedy performers are standing up and taking the reins. If comedy had a government, this would be it.
Casper de Vries, Kurt Schoonraad, Joey Rasdien, Ndumiso Lindi, John Vlismas, Mpho Popps Modikoane and Chester Missing join forces to bring this country just what it needs – The Road To Bwahaha. A stand-up comedy show like no other – all headliners, one stage, and no prisoners.
“This is the will of the people,” says Minister of Offence, John Vlismas. “They are tired of being told about service delivery, so we are going out to the people, and doing material delivery. Our government is working overtime to write comedy, so the least we can do is share it out amongst the people.”
The following ministers will be performing in Cape Town:
• Casper De Vries – Minister of Science Fiction, Internet and Miniseries.
• Mpho Modikoane – Minister of Youth.
• Joey Rasdien – Minister of Religion and Evolution.
• Ndumiso Lindi – Roosta In Chief
• Chester Missing – Minister Of Nik Naks, Guilty Whites and Latex.
• Kurt Schoonrad – Minister of Gatsby’s, Gaps and Gangs
• John Vlismas – Minister of Offence.
Each minister will address the nation in accordance with their mandate, and with all protocol observed.
Screamingly funny, seamlessly staged – this show has a bigger budget than lunch at Nkandla, more full chairs than Parliament and less jokes than Dina Pule’s defence team – Viva Haha Viva!
