PopCom promises an entertainment tour de force presented by LIFT Entertainment in association with the Playhouse Company and supported by the Indian Cultural Centre.

PopCom utilises a variety of comedy styles, music and dance to present anecdotes and stories about the Indian and Coloured communities in Durban.

The different comedy sketches include a look at gambling grannies, peculiar crime solving techniques, racism causing erectile dysfunction, corrupt traffic policemen and a satirical news bulletin called Minority Report. The show features a kaleidoscope of memorable characters that audiences will recognize and appreciate. Although the themes of the show are adult in nature, the language is not profane in any way, so PopCom can be enjoyed by the whole family.

PopCom is directed by Ashwin Singh who has written the script with Kajal Maharaj and Nesan Pather. Choreography is by Kajal Maharaj and Derosha Moodley.

The production features Rory Booth, Kajal Maharaj, Derosha Moodley, Nesan Pather, Ashwin Singh and Shona Johnson.

Performances take place from October 5 to 13 at the Playhouse Loft. Booking is at Computicket.
