In this, funnyman Alan Committie’s 25th solo stand up show, the comedian takes his inspiration from the 25 JAMES BOND movies that have been released over the last 70 years. Image: Alan Committie

Comically exploring stunts, espionage, sex and relationships, international travel, gadgets and, above all, double entendres Committie once again returns with his usual madcap verbal humour and physical hi-jinx.


This show includes a special appearance by intrepid international (read: large parts of Free-State and Upington) security guard Mr Johann Van Der Walt and his “Jaws”esque dentures…. You can also expect a flip-chart, attractive women (in the audience), action and suspense galore (will there be enough staff to deal with interval bar rush?) and a climactic ending (which may or may not involve a xylophone, two rabid porcupines and an inflatable Renault Clio)…..


Live & Let Laugh (No Time To Cry) Details:
Venue: Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre
Dates: April 6 to 16, 2023
Tickets: Between R150 and R270
