Get Ready to Laugh
The fifth annual Fruit of the Loom Armchair Comedy Festival returns for 2017, taking place at the Obviouzly Armchair Theatre in Observatory, Cape Town, from 3 to 10 December 2017. Obviouzly Armchair Theatre is the oldest comedy club in Cape Town, with top comedians like Riaad Moosa, Marc Lottering, Mel Jones, Kurt Schoonraad, and Nik Rabinowitz all having made their comedy debuts here. If you want a chance to perform alongside some of the country’s best known comedy acts, be sure to check out Obviouzly’s Facebook page and enter the competition in search of Cape Town’s next rising star. Post a short clip of yourself performing a set and comedy-guru, Gino Fernandez – together with Fruit of the Loom and the owners of the Obviouzly Armchair Theatre – will select their top 20 acts and allow social media to do the rest.
