Back by popular demand, one of South Africa’s most acclaimed and outspoken comedians, John Vlismas, is bringing his sold-out show of 2016, “Revelations 2: The Good Racist”, to The Lyric at Gold Reef City. Live for two nights only – Friday, 10 March and Saturday, 11 March 2017 –Johannesburg audiences will come face to face with some of the uncomfortable truths of our society as the award-winning comic pulls no punches – the way only Vlismas can.
“Revelations 2: The Good Racist”, sees Vlismas at his most frank, and arguably, his best. Far removed from your typical “ha-ha” jokes, the show leaves the audience with many “a-ha” moments as they are forced to ponder on issues such as the Voortrekkers, Mahatma Gandhi, Shaka and Mugabe.
“We tend to rely on ‘Chappie paper’ facts whenever we attack each other…maybe our common enemy is ignorance?” says Vlismas, who spent nine months doing research for this show, and read over a dozen books as reference. “Whichever way you look at it, we have come a long way as a country – whether we’re heading in the right direction is up for debate.”
“It gives us the greatest pleasure to bring our guests the very best in live entertainment.‘Revelations 2: The Good Racist’, isas hard-hitting as it is funny, and is definitely not to be missed,” says Gareth Kaschula, Gold Reef City Marketing Manager. “Those who want to trace the modern South African back to our forefathers – leaving no stone (or man) unturned – will not be disappointed by this genius show. It is as intelligent as it is brilliantly funny and brutally honest, and will leave you with much to think about for months to come.”
Friday, 10 March and Saturday, 11 March 2017
