And of course, in what has become the traditional high point of the Savanna Comics’ Choice Press Lunch, the recipient of the Lifetime Achiever was announced.
Casper De Vries is undoubtedly a pioneer in South African comedy. His career has spanned television, film and stage.
In true CCA style, Casper de Vries will be ‘grilled’ by the cast of the recent hit Afrikaans stand-up extravaganza, “Magtag!” at Parker’s Comedy Club on July 27th. To watch a panel of ‘grill masters’ hurl comedic insults in the most endearing way, book your tickets from the venue directly or through Computicket.
The main awards ceremony takes place at The Teatro at Montecasino on September 3rd. This year top comedian and TV director, Rob van Vuuren takes the helm to direct what will no doubt be another hilarious variety show made up of sketches, stand-up, impressionists, celebrity performances, choreography and witty one liners delivered by SA’s top comedians.
Limited tickets are available to the public, so book now through TicketPro:
