To all of those people who decided to rather go watch the Currie Cup final, shame you can’t always get it right although I suppose there were a few people laughing at the game, just not any Shark’s supporters.  Presented by the Johannesburg International Comedy Festival at the The 031 Comedy Club, located at S43 Home to That Brewing Co it promised to be a hilarious evening.

I have to say that I was extremely jealous not to be a guest at the event as everybody was either laughing or enjoying the company of friends whilst sampling some of the delicious food from the restaurant and either some of the local beer or some wine from the sponsors Tall Horse.  That was before the acts even started.  I was really impressed at the level of the performers and judging by the raucous laughter everyone else was enjoying the acts too.  I am looking forward to the next event and can only imagine that it will be a sellout too.  Well done to all involved and especially Tyson Heffer for following his passion and putting it all together.  For more corporate events covered by OD Media go to here

Some of the guests who were in for an amazing night of good food, good wine/beer and good laughter.

Carvin Goldstone was the host for the evening and he was really funny. His joke about going to the USA and being a fat guy whilst locals were expecting a skinny, starving man from Africa(because that is who they send aid to) was a classic. Did he eat all the foreign aid? He painted a hilarious image that had everyone in stitches.

Such an awesome bar at S43.

How could you not enjoy the evening?

Loyiso Madinga was my favourite as he used such original material and was so relaxed on stage. He is going to be a successful comedian, if not already.

The ideal setting of S43.

Schalk Bezuidenhout was funny as well.

Mpho Popps was really funny and had some outrageous stories and expressions to go with them.

Emilio Tobias was the invited “amateur” guest and made the most of the opportunity to win over a few new fans.

Neil Green ended off the fantastic evening leaving everybody wanting more and I am pretty sure the guests all left looking forward to the next Trending Comics evening.
