SERIOUSLY FUNNY is Darren Maule’s brand new comedy show!

For a limited season only – Darren Maule will be at Mardi Gras, Carnival City, Johannesburg with his multi-media show, SERIOUSLY FUNNY from Friday 25 October until 29 November 2013. For the past nineteen years, Darren’s versatility as a mime, trained theatrical actor and stand-up comedian has made him a name which, somewhere along the line, we remember. He was “that” guy on Survivor SA Santa Carolina or perhaps you remember his great repartee with co-host Pabi Moloi on PlayTV, his sharp cutting wit on “Out the Box” and “Last Say on Sunday”  or maybe you remember Darren as the dark horse/comic relief in the multi-award winning “Hard Copy” TV drama series. However you remember him, SERIOUSLY FUNNY combines Darren’s skills as a comedian, actor and physical performer to tell the story – as only Darren can – of all his ups and downs, highs and lows, for better or for worse and to show that there is always, always space for comedy in life. Darren uses his story-telling ability to demonstrate how absolutely anything can be funny. For the first time he will tell of his sometimes sordid, certainly colourful and definitely not boring life.  He takes you through the burgeoning days of comedy when stand-up comics really were the rock stars of the entertainment industry and when nobody behaved more like a rock star than Darren Maule!  He survived his lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll and has emerged stronger, better and funnier and he just keeps achieving.  Darren relocated to Durban two years ago and has continued growing as a performer and can now boast an even larger following… as a breakfast radio show host. To this day people stop Darren and ask if he is the guy from “White Wedding”.  Quite an accolade really seeing as he only had 2 minutes of screen time.   He also had a cameo appearance in “District 9” which nobody will remember – his scene was cut! It is brave.  It is funny. It is his story told for the first time by him. SERIOUSLY FUNNY is Darren Maule’s multi-media comedy show and is an experience for the whole family. Tickets are R100.00 each and available at the door of Mardi Gras, Carnival City on the night of each performance.  Box Office opens at 18h00 before each performance. Performance schedule: ·Friday 25 October 2013 @ 20h00 – Media Review night. ·Friday 1 November 2013 @ 20h00 ·Friday 15 November 2013 @ 20h00 ·Friday 29 November 2013 @...

Introducing The First Official Beats By Dre Party “In The City”

The first official Beats By Dr Dre Party will be held in Johannesburg on the 12th of October 2013 at Shikisha, Newtown. Expect top names and explosive beats from artists such as Warras, Sol Phenduka, Thea Lazarusman, Clive Bean and Jerah, as well as a live performance by Pam M. “With Beats, people are going to hear what the artists hear, and listen to the music the way they should: the way I do.” – Dr. Dre Formerly known as Horror Café, Shikisha in Newtown is the perfect place for this extraordinary event in the heart of Johannesburg. The location is superior, lying right next door to the legendary Turbine Hall (the setting of many premier events during Johannesburg Fashion Week). One of the many big talents to be showcased at The Beats in the City includes Warrick ‘Warras’ Stock a.k.a the Shady Lurker. Born in Durban, he attended primary school there while staying with his grandmother. He then moved to Johannesburg as a teenager and quickly adapted to the fast-paced environment. Warras has become one of themost popular music personalities around. Former Yfm Programming Manager Vukile Zondi gave him an opportunity to become a jock in 2007. Starting as a DJ with a new line-up in April 2008, Warras continued to grow ever since. As a reputable DJ and host of Live AMP, this young go-getter is poised to take on the industry. Solomzi Phenduka, also known as Sol Phenduka is a man of many talents, but the one that has grabbed the South African crowds is his music. Sol Phenduka has been making music for close to a decade. Even without anysingles released, the popular YFM breakfast radio jock has created a buzz – getting people talking and dancing to his music. His brand of house music is a verysoulful African sound with influences of Afrobeat and Nujazz. With house music being a very popular genre in South Africa, Sol has always strived to set himself apart and take the road less travelled when approaching his music. Thea Lazarusman is a young poet from Johannesburg, spending years performing in some of the city’s supreme poetry events and venues. He then decided to chase his love for electronic dance music. His 2009 release with Diynamic mainstay Martin Stimming turned out to be a very prosperous debut. The track ‘Funk With Me’ was followed by ‘Change’, and since then Thea Lazarusman has not looked back. He tries to bring a level of seclusion and warmth, offering personal and life experiences that everyone can relate to through his music. Rarely writing down any of his own lyrics, he thrives on free-styling...
