Laugh­ter awaits at the Queens Casino

The Rep - - ROUND & ABOUT -

A NIGHT of fun and up­roar­i­ous laugh­ter awaits those Ko­mani res­i­dents who en­joy a good belly laugh when en­ter­tain­ment com­pany Splakavel­lis Management launches Com­edy Night at the Queens Casino’s Hadley’s Sports Bar on Tues­day Fe­bru­ary 27.

The suc­cess of the Com­edy Night in East Lon­don has led to the de­ci­sion to run this in­au­gu­ral event in Ko­mani.

The show fea­tures the well-known Go­liaths – Dono­van, Nicholas and the larger-than-life Ja­son, who have their own com­edy club in Johannesburg, known as Go­liath and Go­liath.

Sheree O’Brien of the management com­pany is a well-es­tab­lished artist man­ager, me­dia, en­ter­tain­ment, mu­sic and tele­vi­sion mav­er­ick who has spent no less than 20 years in this coun­try and abroad. She iden­ti­fied a gap in the mar­ket for comedic en­ter­tain­ment which would be­come a cul­ture . . . and no one will ar­gue that cit­i­zens of this coun­try could do with some­thing re­ally funny.

“To see the rain­bow na­tion in one room, laugh­ing to­gether over some thought-pro­vok­ing and of­ten con­tro­ver­sial topics that the co­me­di­ans raise, is heart-warm­ing. Com­edy has the power to unify,” she said, adding that the show will ap­peal to all cul­tures and lan­guage groups. Lo­cal co­me­di­ans are wel­come to get in touch with the com­pany if they would like to be­come part of the line-up.

“It’s no se­cret that Ko­mani lacks va­ri­ety on the en­ter­tain­ment scene and Hadley’s Sports Bar is to be­come the ‘funny cen­tre’ of the town,” Queens Casino and Ho­tel gen­eral man­ager John Rade­man said.
