Get ready for a top-class comedy ensemble show, featuring Dan Nicholl as your hilarious host, with some of Cape Town favourite comedians. The line up includes Kurt Schoonraad, Stuart Taylor, KG Mokgadi and Rob van Vuuren, not forgetting the improv comedy genius, Chris Forrest.
Dan Nicholl has made a big name for himself as an excellent MC for some of South Africa’s biggest events, including the Sport Industry Awards, the Cape Wine Auction, the BMW International Polo Series, the Absa Cape Epic, and many others. Internationally he has also hosted some impressive sporting events like the annual Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland for several years, the Emirates Invitational in Abu Dhabi, Beyond Sport United at Yankee Stadium and the Mauritius Open, to name a few.
The show’s exceptional line-up of comedians features some of South Africa’s best-known and funniest talent.
Kurt Schoonraad and Stuart Taylor must be two of the country’s most recognisable faces thanks to their popular TV show Going Nowhere Slowly. Both comedians’ careers have taken off since the show aired in 2005. They have each been regulars on television game shows, stand-up comedy and performing one-man shows on the professional comedy circuit.
Rob van Vuuren is also one of the country’s most popular funny men. He has acted in numerous television shows and a few movies. He has been nominated for four Fleur Du Cap awards and won the inaugural Comics Choice Breakthrough Award in 2011 and has two Standard Bank Ovation Awards.
Kagiso Mokgadi, or KG as he is affectionately, is fast becoming one of the top new stand-up comedians acts in the country.
“With this hilarious line-up, I am sure these shows are going to be fantastic,” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest. “These guys are all very experienced, they are literally experts in comedy, and their shows are very popular. We are always delighted to host them at GrandWest.”
The Dan Nicholl Show Comedy Festival is on 17 and 18 May 2018 at Hanover Street, GrandWest. Tickets are available from Computicket at R150 each. The show starts at 19h30.
