THE MOTHER CITY OF ALL LAUGHS
3RD TO 10TH DECEMBER
ARMCHAIR COMEDY FESTIVAL, OBVIOUZLY ARMCHAIR THEATRE, OBSERVATORY, CAPE TOWN
The week-long Annual Armchair Comedy Festival once again promises a stellar line-up of some of South Africa’s top comedians. Known for its homegrown style comedy, the Armchair has been home to many top comedians on the South African scene. Comedians such as Riaad Moosa, Marc Lottering, Mel Jones, Kurt Schoonraad and Nik Rabinowitz all made their comedy debut at the Obviouzly Armchair Theatre and always enjoy returning to entertain their local crowd. Prior to the festival, the theatre will be running a social-media competition in search of Cape Town’s next rising star. Entrants will need to post a clip of themselves performing a short set and the top 20 will then battle it out on social media. The winner will have the chance to perform at the festival alongside well-known comedy acts.
