I'm not sturvy when it comes to comedy, but Nik Rabinowitz' Stand and Deliver comedy show was rather droog. I'm probably one of many kinners in the audience that found it erg. And if you're not from Cape Town, or you haven't befriended anyone who understands the Cape Coloured lingo, that intro's probably lost on you. It's how I felt at the opening show last night - I was unable to relate to most of Rabinowitz' material.
