The Comedy Parliament is almost in session

Fans of laughter are in for a real treat when Nando’s presents Mass Hysteria 2015 – ‘The Long Bunfight to Freedom’, featuring an all-star cast of local comedy talent, at The Teatro at Montecasino from Wednesday to Sunday, August 19 to 23.

This year has been witness to the most extraordinary scenes of Parliamentary disorder ever, with fists flying, insults exchanged, mass walkouts and the deployment of SWAT teams in the House. Never before have overalls and berets been at the heart of potential darkness. The nation was astounded that not even load shedding could stop light from being cast on the shenanigans of our elected politicians. They have accepted bribes, employed inept family and pick-pocketed the taxpayer as he waited for SAPS to pick up the phone. Have we, the people, unwittingly jumped from a frying pan into the fire?

What is the solution? Where will we find relief? Who can we look to for answers?

Nando’s is committed to keeping the heat on those responsible, and even though they don’t profess to have all the answers, they sure know how to turn on the burn.

The burn promises to come in several degrees, from the extra hot spice of John Vlismas, to the lemon and herb stylings of former caveman, Alan Committee; with many flavors in between.

Quite simply, if comedy had a government, this would be it. From the makers of The Comics’ Choice Awards, ‘Revelations’, ‘Bitches’ and other great comedy shows comes one of the most anticipated comedy productions of the year.

Look forward to a handpicked line-up of the best stand-ups in the country each night on one stage. Book now and find out why comedians should be running the country.

The Joburg line-up:

• Nik Rabinowitz: Minister of Shark Infested Water Affairs

• Chester Missing: Shadow Puppet Minister

• Tumi Morake: Minister of Ben 10’s, YOLO and Homesteads

• Mpho Popps Modikoane: Minister of Television and Gratuitous Adverts

• John Vlismas: Minister of Non-Communicative Diseases

And for the first time in years…
