Rhumbelow Theatre is to host multi award-winning performer Godfrey Johnson premiering his new one man show. Godfrey Johnson With Horns includes hilarious tales of gyms, health, food, fashion, captivating songs and a healthy dose of comedy and pathos.

Expect Sex Pistols in the style of Noel Coward, musical jokes and many more hilarious moments. The show will feature songs by Brel, Coward, Porter, Pet Shop Boys and new material by Johnson. The audience will also have the chance to choose their favourite songs as Johnson works his human juke box routine.

In 2007, Johnson won The Fleur du Cap Award for best performance in a cabaret and has been nominated twice for his one man shows, Flirting with Coward and The Shadow of Brel, both directed by Sanjin Muftic. In 2010, he performed with Pieter-Dirk Uys in award-winning Bambi Sings the FAK and other struggle Anthems at The Fugard Theatre.

Johnson has performed over 20 one-man shows and has appeared at every arts festival in South Africa as well as performing in Montreal, Amsterdam and London. He has starred in numerous films, television programmes and musicals, most recently David Moore's Once Upon a Road Trip and Robert Silke's The Satyr of Springbok Heights. He also directed the musical The Cape Town Show in 2010 and 2011.
