Laughter awaits at the Queens Casino
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.
