The Stage Theatre and performing arts school in Tygervalley has fast become a gem of theatre especially for comedy. Catch a jam of a comedy evening there this Friday with JamJars, ComedyJams and hopefully no TrafficJams. The line-up includes Martin Davis (UK), Mark Palmer, Mum-Z, Anne Hirsch (that’s me) and Rustum August. Book @ 0823014921. And in the words of Bob Marley…We’re Jammin and we hope you like jammin too!!
We love Who’s Line is it Anyway…well, Theatresports is a bit like that…without Drew Carrey and Wayne Brady. Well, without all of them really. But it’s improv and it’s at it’s best. So if the World Cup is getting a bit too much for you, pop on by and check out SA’s favourite group of improvisers. They’ll be performing this whole week at Kalk Bay theatre including a special performance this evening at The Intimate Theatre where I will be making my Theatresports debut *the crowd goes wild*. See you there…Philiep it is here!
The Randy old men sketches from French and Saunders (the best comedians in the world!!) are so so funny, but then I watched their Still Alive dvd and saw this at the end…I actually could not stop laughing..”the beast is back in the cage” Too much…absolutely fabulous.
Someone insisted I watch this new series called: Manstrokewoman…there was a slightly awkward silence where I was convinced she wanted to chat about porn but then I realised it was a new British comedy series. So I set off to DVD Nouveau in Bree St – which is a super duper dvd shop apart from a very scary and rude man that sometimes works there- so I watched it, from beginning till 2h in the morning. Then I watched it again last night with audio commentry on- ‘a little sad’ I hear you clamour. Absolutely brilliant. Here are some sketches from season 1 and 2. I haven’t seen season 2 yet, any hints on where to get it, contact me asap!
I got sent this the other day and at first I laughed a lot, but the more I watch it the funnier and sadder it gets. This model actually can not walk. That’s a tricky one to get over if you are a catwalk model…It is obviously an extremely hard job..walking that is…but imagine you can’t walk and you have to do it every day. I feel so sorry for her.
