What better date for an evening of laughter and comedy than 1 April? The SAB World of Beer will be making the most of this traditional day of fun by partnering with stand-up comedy company, Goliath and Goliath, to host an April Fools' comedy show at our Newtown home.
An entertaining and talented line-up will feature the comedic talents of Mojak Lehoko (your host), Chris Forrest, Loyiso Madinga, Glen Biderman-Pam and Mo Mothebe.
Deadpan delivery and a dry sense of humour have endeared Chris Forrest to local audiences for the past 15 years. A regular performer on South Africa's premier comedy show The Heavyweight Comedy Jam, which regularly tours the country, Chris has also appeared on South Africa’s popular Blacks Only show.
Currently performing stand-up comedy across the country and touring with his one-man shows, Mojak Lehoko is an international Emmy-nominated writer, Comic's Choice-nominated stand-up comedian and actor. He started performing in a pub in 2010 before launching his highly acclaimed one-man show How Did I Get Here? in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Along with scripting and performance credits on the Late Nite News, Mojak also wrote a screenplay for e.tv's Ekasi Stories movie series, entitled A Wanna Be.
Glen Biderman-Pam is an actor/comedian with half a dozen Shakespearean roles under his belt. He made his professional theatre debut in 2011 at the Wits Downstairs Theatre and the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown as David Levitt in Somewhere on the Border.
Glen has performed stand-up comedy at Jou Ma se Comedy Club and Armchair Sundays in Cape Town, and at Parkers at Montecasino and The Box at Maboneng's PopArt Theatre in Johannesburg.
Winner of the Comics’ Choice Award for Best Newcomer 2014, Loyiso Madinga performs under the name LOYMAD. A familiar face at Goliath & Goliath's AWEdnesday Comedy, Loyiso has also performed at Parker’s, The Box, Primi’s Comedy Wednesday and at the Market Theatre. His growing popularity led to Loyiso performing at the Teatro at Montecasino in the line-up for the Nando’s Comedy Show.
Fresh to the local comedy scene, Tshireletso “Mo” Mothebe is a Johannesburg-based comedian who began his comedy career just three years ago. Mothebe’s performances in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Grahamstown have left audiences in stitches, and his popularity growing by leaps and bounds.
Can't think of a better way to spend April Fools'? Neither can we!
The laughter starts at 7.30pm and the show runs until 10pm in the Gallery at the World of Beer. The show is two hours' long, with brief intervals after each of the comedy acts to fill your glass with a range of SAB beverages on sale at the bar. Drinks vouchers will be on sale at reception.
And if all the laughter makes your tummy rumble, fear not, because our Tap Room Restaurant will remain open until 7.30pm for the convenience of hungry guests.
