94.7 Highveld Stereo presents the REAL Heavyweight Comedy Jam at Emperors Palace

17 September 2009

94.7 Highveld Stereo, in association with Emperors Palace, will showcase the country’s finest comedians in the Real Heavyweight Comedy Jam on 26 September in Centre Court.

Audiences are in for a powerful knockout performance with massive names on the comedy circuit.  The impressive line up includes 94.7 Highveld Stereo's very own Alex Jay as the Master of Ceremonies and also sees award winning Canadian comedian, Jason Rouse making his debut appearance. This agile Canadian is fast becoming the most celebrated odd-ball in stand up comedy today.

In addition, popular Cape Town based comedians Stuart Taylor, who recently enjoyed a successful run of his one man show "The Learner Husband" and funnyman Paul Snodgrass join the line-up, together with ventriloquist Conrad Koch and the country's funniest female comic, Tumi Morake.  Tumi's brand of comedy has been described as ‘in your face' and ‘slightly provocative' and one thing is certian, this lady can bring tears to your eyes with belly-heaving laughter.

Another highlight on the line-up is Chris Forrest, also known as 94.7 Highveld Stereo's "POKERFACE" and the hugely popular STARSHIP IMPROVISE with Al Prodgers.

Starship Improvise is a collective of South Africa's freshest, funniest and most talented improvisers, who will entertain audiences with a "whose line is it anyway" short form improvisation. It's made up on the spot using suggestions from the audience, and is always hilariously funny.

With this incredible line up, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Emperors Palace are set to deliver the biggest and funniest Heavyweight Comedy Jam yet. If you enjoy performances that guarantee a superb, toning workout of gut-wrenching laughter and uncontrollable giggles, then the show is not to be missed!
