ALAN COMMITTIE’S APOCALAUGHS NOW!
From 9 December, 2020 to 16 January, 2021
Theatre On The Bay is THRILLED to announce that Alan Committie is back
in his brand-new year-end stand-up show: Apocalaughs Now! from 9
December 2020 to 16 January 2021.
It’s been the wildest year yet with the most unexpected and crazy pandemic
turning our existence inside out, and upside down. However, renowned
funnyman Alan Committie is determined that we keep laughing in the face
of it all. So, join him in his latest solo stand-up show which re-opens Theatre
on the Bay this festive season.
Global lockdown, earthquakes in Plumstead, cigarette and alcohol bans,
Cricket South Africa out for a duck, Trumpeting leaders blowing hot air and
the only response we have had so far is to dance the Jerusalema (which is
how drunk people pronounce Julius Malema after 2am in the morning). But
now Committie explores how we can stay sane and healthy in body, mind
and soul with his usual madcap verbal wit and physical comedy
Our intrepid jester tries to understand wellness coaches, explores the world
of Tik-Tok videos, unpacks how we thought the world would end versus
how it’s actually happening and may or may not have found the missing
R500 billion promised to the nation!
So, book now for the limited 6 week run at the most scenic theatre in South
Africa. Playing to only 50% capacity every night under the new regulations
and following all COVID-19 health protocols this promises to be a superb
evening of laughter and the best live entertainment you could have as the
world comes crashing down around you.
He who laughs MASKED, laughs best!
