Have a Good Laugh

It’s no surprise that a country as multi-cultural as South Africa has produced a variety of comedians with a range of styles as diverse as the country itself.

 

 


Take a look at these DVDs for a taste of South African stand up comedians at their best.

Trevor NoahThe Daywalker
Starring in a small role in South Africa’s soap opera Isidingo in 2009, Trevor Noah has blossomed into an award-winning stand up comedian. This DVD records his first solo stand up show at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino in October 2009 and features punchlines and unexpected twists delivered in Trevor’s expletive-free style.

 

Marc Lottering Hallelujah
Marc is one of South Africa’s leading comedians and has been in the business for over 12 years. The Hallelujah DVD features several of his best known characters expressing their views on the modern day church and showcases Marc’s inimitable style.

 

Michael NaickerSeeing Double, Feeling Single
Michael Naicker is the name of the South African Indian character developed by Kevin Perkins. In this DVD, filmed before a sold-out audience at the Lyric Theatre, Michael explores such diverse topics as in-flight bowel gas, Christmas and the American presidency.
Riaad MoosaFor the Baracka
Riaad Moosa is one of South Africa’s top stand up comics and also a qualified medical doctor, hence his often-used title, “the comedy doctor”. This performance, supposedly inspired by the birth of his son and filmed in 2009, shows Riaad coming to terms with raising a child in the modern world.
Casper De VriesWetter
Although his professional career began in 1986, it wasn’t until 1997 that Casper De Vries began his one man shows. His 1998 show, Wetter, is the basis for this DVD and is a bitingly satirical look at topics including, in no particular order, Nelson Mandela, cloning, Viagra, steroids and pets.
Barry HiltonSerial Comic
Showcasing Barry Hilton, one of South Africa’s top stand up comics, the Serial Comic DVD was released in July this year. Barry’s amazing facial expressions, physical animations and razor sharp wit will have you reaching for the pause button just to catch your breath.
Just Because Comedy Festival – Featuring: Eugene Khoza/ Loyiso Gola/Conrad Koch
First conceived by Trevor Noah and fellow stand up comic Loyiso Gola as a way to help the less privileged over the festive season, the final performance of the two-week festival in 2008 was filmed for this DVD. It has been described as “a tour de force” with some of South Africa’s brightest comedy stars.
Whatever your taste in humour, you’re sure to find something to tickle your funny bone.
