TRAFFIC-STOPPING EDITION OF “COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS…” TO BRING CAPE TOWN TO A STANDSTILL THIS FEBRUARY
Back in Cape Town for one night only, we are promising a comedy heatwave with the latest edition of Comedy Central Presents…Live at Cape Town Comedy Club (25 February). The sensational stand-up comedy gig, Comedy Central’s longest running comedy franchise in Africa, will bring to the forefront some of Cape Town’s most notable and influential comedians, with comedy legend Martin Evans topping the bill.
Having captivated audiences in 18 countries, award-winning funnyman and headliner for this year’s stand-up gig is Martin Evans, an accomplished and revered comedian in South Africa and abroad. At the top of the comedy game, Evans’ accolades include over 800 performances, two Standard Bank Ovation Awards for his critically acclaimed series of one man shows, a slot at the inaugural Comedy Central International Comedy Festival in November 2015, and an infamous episode of “Come Dine with Me: SA”, to name a few.
Supporting Evans on the night will be Gino Fernandez, a well-respected and celebrated stand-up comedian on the Cape Town comedy circuit, Lungelo Ndlovu, a Chris Tucker impersonator turned renowned stand-up comedian, and Devin Gray, one of Cape Town’s youngest upcoming stand-up stars.
