Funnier Than Them

Funnier Than Them

Joburg has a bevy of home-grown comedy to choose from, but why watch anything else when this show is guaranteed to be Funnier Than Them.

Chris Forrest, Deep Fried Man and Warren Robertson have joined forces for the hilarious ensemble show, Funnier Than Them showing at the Theatre on the Square in Sandton from the 20th to 25th of October.

Funnier Than Them is a stand-up comedy show like no other. Blending elements of crowd interaction, improvisation and animation, it is guaranteed to deliver and evening of laughs from some of the country’s funniest comedians.

The show was launched at the 2014 Grahamstown National Arts Festival to packed houses and received critical acclaim.

“An outstanding performance by three comedians who dazzle the audience with their jokes on political and social issues. A perfect show for adults that will keep audiences enthralled” – Cue 2014

“Funnier Than Them is very strong. Proper observational stuff; focusing on the important themes but skipping the cliches. Hallelujah!” – Bruce Dennill, CityVibe

The three comics have recently returned from their performance of the show at the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town, where their run ended with a sold-out show and a standing ovation.

“If you don’t like stand-up comedy, Funnier Than Them will change your mind.” – Lili Radloff, Women24

The trio’s individual achievements in the comedy industry are considerable including television shows, films, performances at some of South Africa’s biggest comedy events as well as a number of awards and nominations under their belt.

Each comic has their own unique style. With Forrest’s dry one-liners and perfect comedy timing to Robertson’s dark, intelligent humour and Deep Fried Man’s blend of musical comedy and sature, there is something for everyone.

They will also be joined by the legendary old-school comic, the animated MC, Gerry D Atric.

It’s a night out that can’t be missed in the company of three of SA’s funniest people. It’s running for just one week so don’t miss out.

Date: Monday, 20th to Saturday, 25th of October
Venue: Theatre on the Square, Sandton.
Time: 20h00
Tickets: R130 | Bookings on Strictly Tickets – www.strictlytickets.com
