Schalk Bezuidenhout Returns With His Latest Show KEEPING UP
Kempton Park born Schalk Bezuidenhout has been in stand-up since April 2011, and since then has been woke – seriously woke. The self-confessed liberal guy at the braai, the retro jersey wearing comedian is having to watch his words, as much as the petrol price. And it’s not like Schalk is against change! But in this ever-changing world and society, he is just trying to keep up.

Times: 7:30pm
Venue: Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace, Kempton Park

Nik Rabinowitz Returns Mask-Free And UNMUTED!
Having spent the pandemic doing his own research on YouTube, Nik is now finally ready to connect the dots, wake up the sheeple, and take you down the rabbit hole into our crazy post-pandemic world. From conspiracy theories and micro-dosing to death doulas and dogging, nothing is off limits…except the things the Illuminati told him not to talk about.

Times: 7:30pm
Venue: Theatre on the Square, Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton


Tickets are available from R190 and are available on Computicket.


Jason Goliath’s One-Man Comedy Show DALA WHAT YOU MUST, IT IS WHAT IT IS
DALA WHAT YOU MUST, IT IS WHAT IT IS, is inspired by the most important word Jason grasped during lockdown; ‘acceptance’ and will include unfiltered, never-before-heard anecdotes about his life, his journey, uncomfortable truths and how he learnt to “Dala” (do) what he had to, to persevere. Take this show as an opportunity to get out of the house, rekindle with old friends or take a break from the kids. But more importantly, come and share what you have been going through and see that you are not alone…. all this, while laughing! There is no better therapy.



Dates: November 16 to November 27, 2022
Times: 8pm
Venue: Theatre on the Square, Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton


Tickets are available from R200 and are available on WebTickets.
