(Lare Birk, Leon Schuster & Rob Van Vuuren with Alfred Ntombela in front)

South Africa’s candid camera king is back! Leon Schuster (Schuks) returns to prank unsuspecting South Africans with Schuks! Your Country Needs You. Helping him rile up everyday victims – and some famous faces – are long-time collaborator Alfred Ntombela (Shorty), rubber-faced comic star of stage and screen Rob van Vuuren (Wayne) and gorgeous newcomer Laré Birk (Sammy).

Together, the awesome foursome have wrought havoc across South Africa, testing people’s patience in traffic, swindling them at shops and scaring them by the side of the road – all for a good cause: laughter! Transformed by elaborate costumes and special effects makeup, Schuks and the team also tackle some of the country’s biggest names – will they take the bait or see the funny side of it?

Join Schuks, Shorty, Wayne and Sammy in Schuks! Your Country Needs You as they tangle with sports fans and get frisky with one of South Africa’s leading sports personalities – all for a laugh!

Currently on the circuit, the production is directed by Gray Hofmeyr and produced by Andre Scholtz with screenplay by Leon Schuster and Gray Hofmeyr.
