Aaron McIlroy’s new show promises a dose of extreme theatre.

Aaron McIlroy promises a dose of extreme theatre as never before in his new show Unplucked which will have a limited season at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from November 17.

Move into top gear and prepare to be ambushed, as the man packs out the laughter lines, unleashing his inimitable gallery of characters in a festival of comedy that harks back over 15 years on the live entertainment beat.

Remember Sex, Bugs and Rock ‘n Roll; The Revenge of the Pink Panties; Abbamaniacs; My Cousin Brother; The Loser; Defending the Planet; The Stand-up; DOF; The Golfer? McIlroy’s trademark creations from these productions and others will make invited (or uninvited) guest appearances as his new show promises to ricochet nightly from the certifiable to near insane!

The whacky and wonderful cavalcade will take to the stage at random, offering fans a different experience of the McIlroy magic from one performance to the next. So stand by for close-up encounters or unforgettable reunions with the likes of Bruce Syringenson, Truscott Price, Joel Liebenburg, Nigel Bjorn van Rensburg, Veejay Moodley, Lavern Levine, Pepe Gonzales and a burst of other loons, as McIlroy unleashes his ever-changing jamboree of madness and mayhem on his audiences.

Adding his own distinctive spin to each performance DJ KingB will re-mix McIlroy’s musical concoctions live onstage, keeping the man himself on his toes in more ways than one...

Unplucked runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from November 17 to 29 with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 19h30 (Sundays at 18h00). Tickets R85. Book now to avoid disappointment. Booking is at Computicket on 083 915 8000 or online at
