Her Majesty the Queen of England will be paying a month-long visit to the Mother City in July, where she will officially open the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival delivered by Turkish Airlines. The popular Festival, now in its fourteenth year, runs from July 9 to August 5 at the Baxter Theatre.
Her Majesty’s impersonator, Australian actor and comedian, Gerry Connolly, travels the world officially opening major events as Her Majesty. He will attend every performance of the Festival.
The Jive Cape Town Funny Festival has become Cape Town’s winter comedic tonic and is well known for presenting top class, international variety acts on the same stage as South Africa’s top comics. The official line-up of local performers includes Master of Ceremony, Alan Committie, Marc Lottering, Tats Nkonzo, Rob van Vuuren, Khanyisa Bunu and Siv Ngesi.
The international acts include Gerry Connolly, Cirque du Soleil lead clown, Mookie Cornish from Canada, French clown Raymond Raymondson and British comedy duo Goronwy Thom and Richard Garaghty.
