A self-confessed “farm boy”, Carl Weber (@CarlWeber9) has been honing he’s comedic skills on the Cape Town comedy circuit since 2010. His comedy revolves around being a small town boy in the big city and his experiences of growing up in the Free State. He delves in and out of hilariously funny characters, with an amazingly unique take on everyday life.

While still new to the comedy scene, he has reached the finals of the Graca Comedy Showdown 2010 as well as performing at the annual Rocking the Daisies Festival (comedy tent). He’s also done outdoor events such as the 2010 annual Kite festival and the 2011 Navy Festival, fine tuning his set to an array of different audiences.

2011 was indeed an eventful year as Carl had gone on to win Phat Joe’s Next Comic sponsored by Heart FM. Taking the leap into theatre he completed a four night run as part of Stuart Taylor’s intimate comedy sessions at On Broadway. Also chosen to open to 1500 people for Loyiso Gola’s one man show “Life & Times”, Carl was extremely well received. He also won the Graca comedy showdown in 2011, which secured him a spot in the coveted Nandos comedy festival. However, the biggest highlight thus far was being selected to share a stage with international comics like Greg Behrendt (best selling author of “He’s just not that into you”) and the internationally acclaimed comic, Pablo Francisco. He also performed in “Proudly Coloured”, which had a three night run at the Victory theatre in Johannesburg.

A regular on the club comedy scene, he has performed as a feature act at all the major club comedy gigs in Cape Town. Carl is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the South African Comedy Industry.
