Comedy fans can brace for another outrageously-funny comedy event with Jou ma se Comedy Club at the Mykonos Casino on Friday the 21st of February 2014. On the bill for the night are three audacious comedians, Dugald Pieterse, CJ Benson, and Dylan Skews.
“We are thrilled to have three of the Western Cape’s finest comedians shaking things up at our February comedy event. Jou ma se Comedy Club never fails to draw a big crowd and send them home still chuckling. We have no doubt that they have a fantastic evening in store for us,” says the casino’s Marketing Manager, Natasha Brand.
Headlining the show is Pieterse, who has performed at the casino a number of times and is one of South Africa’s most sought-after comedians. Pieterse, who hails from Bredasdorp, performs “observational comedy” with a fresh sophisticated charisma. He is one of a handful of comedians who is at ease in performing both in English and Afrikaans. He tackles both family shows as well as the more controversial topics with great ease. Dugald’s stage presence and energy can only be described as infectious this alone marks him as an exciting comedian and entertainer guaranteed to take the by storm.
Dylan Skews, one of South Africa’s fastest rising comedians, has been on the comedy circuit for four years now. He won the Nandos Comedy Showdown in 2009 and also won PhatJoe’s comedy show in 2010 where he took the title “Cape Town’s next comedian”. He recently finished his one man show “SKEWS ME” which he wrote, directed and performed on broadway, to rave reviews. His style is a newfangled hybrid that bounces between the able one liner hedonist Mitch Hedberg and the outlandish Richard Pryor – a captivating blend of edgy city boy antics and pure accessible fun.
All the way from the streets of Lotus River in Cape Town, standup comedian Calvin Benson or “CJ Benson” as he is known to his peers broke onto the comedy circuit in April 2011. In only a few months on the circuit he won the Jokers Comedy Club Open Mic Competition where his prize was to perform at the prestigious with Jou ma Se Comedy Club and he has been back there to perform on numerous occasions. His comedy is drawn from his experiences and observations of everyday life including that of family and friends. He does not consider him to be a standup comedian but more a “humour distribution manager”.
They hit the stage at the casino’s Charlie Noble Restaurant at 20:00 after guests have finished feasting on the extensive buffet for which the restaurant has become famous. Tickets to the show cost R 130, including dinner. Bookings essential on +27 22 7076965.
