I am a funny guy. Best man wedding speech funny. Dinner party funny. Around the braai funny but nowhere near stand-up comedy funny. That's an entirely different league, with massive pressure from a demanding and expectant audience. Actually, comedy is no longer a funny guy on the stage, it is now an organisation, an industry if you like. Today, comedy is very much mainstream and in South Africa it is about business, big business. We see top talent on US late night TV, international acts selling out their shows on our shores, financially successful, locally produced comedy movies that thrive at the box office in addition to sharing key shelf space in retail stores. Long-term comedy clubs exist and prosper; comedy is on the bill at some of the biggest theatres in the country. Big, big business. 21 Sep 2012 Read more >>
