So lately, I’ve been a bit of an addict of our local comedy scene. I don’t think I will ever go back to being excited about The Jive Comedy Festival if our local stand-ups are not part of it.
At The Cape Town Comedy Club, there is just this VIBE that you don’t get anywhere else. From the friendly clients/patrons, to the awesome & very efficient staff & new manager “Leanne” to the famous soldier at the door, Bruno, who always greets us with a warm friendly hug to the security outside.
Now, my favourite subject….food..let me start with the peri peri chicken livers (there’s a new chef so make sure you ask for HOT if you want a lekker tang) are AMAZING! Their wings are better than Sticky Fingers’. Their calamari is also really good! I wish I can mention more dishes but I am the type of person to order the same damn things all the time, especially if it’s REALLY good!
Lastly, happy hour for most of the evening, where Leane suggested we try the Tequila gold with orange slices sprinkled with brown sugar. TRY IT!!!!!
Then we met the owner on Saturday night, as down to earth as ALL the comedians on stage, Kurt Schoonraad. Awesome and VERY FUNNY GUY!
So anyway, I’m just going to leave this here. No I don’t get paid to do reviews, no I was not prompted to do reviews, but I love giving credit where it’s due. So please, do go out & support local comedy (local anything , where possible) and I promise you, you will be HOOKED!
