Last chance to get your tickets to this year’s Comic’s Choice Awards.
Tickets are almost sold out for The 3rd Annual Comic’s Choice Awards™ (CCA), which takes place next Saturday night, 24 August at the Teatro at Montecasino.
With signature secrecy, the creative team remains tight-lipped about what audiences can expect, other than to say that they are pulling out all the stops to deliver another dynamite production. Taking the format of a hilarious variety show at which six awards are handed out, winners are required to perform seven minutes of stand-up in lieu of an acceptance speech, so those lucky enough to have purchased the few tickets available to the public are in for a treat!
Earlier this year, the comedy industry submitted ideas for the sketches that they’d like to perform and the CCA team had the tough time of selecting the best (and funniest) ones to schedule into the show. With fantastic collaborations and a few wildly unlikely appearances, SA’s top comics, budding newcomers, celebs, VIPs and comedy fans will celebrate excellence in comedy on this very special night.
This year’s theme, “The Art Of Funny” centers on self-expression and social justice and blends technology, the growing power of social media and urban street art to reshape reality and drive revolution. The show promises to push the boundaries of funny vs. socially acceptable and will have you rolling (and squirming) in your seats.
And the nominees are…!
The Savanna Newcomer Award, Loyiso Madinga, Eureka Nkese, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Kagiso Mokgadi
