A decade since Dingalings Productions unleashed their refreshing new style of off-the-wall comedy on Durban with their hysterically-funny Chops, Choons and Span of Dops, the cast is ready to launch the sequel.

Fans can catch them is this all new sequel Chops, Choons and Span of Dops 2 at Sibaya’s iZulu Theatre on July 3 and 4. It promises to be everything – and more – that audiences have waited for.

The play is directed by Yugan Naidoo and showcases the talents of local comedy favourites Koobeshen Naidoo, Henry Ramkisoon, Ravi Soobramoney, Melvyn David, Adhir Singh and newcomer Raymond Naidoo.

The storyline sees the guys go off to celebrate on a boy's weekend away and as usual things don't exactly pan out as planned, resulting in hilarious consequences. This time, the guys take things to another level with their witty conversations, laugh-a-minute comedy, popular chutney music and all time favorite songs from their youth.

“It is hard to believe that it has been a decade since the Dingalings launched themselves onto the local comedy scene with a refreshing style of comedy that everyone could relate to. Audiences were nudging each other in agreement while chuckling away at characters they somehow recognized from their own neighbourhoods. Finally, wives had insight into what guys get up to on their ‘boy’s nights out’. We are thrilled to have Dingalings back on our stage with this much-anticipated sequel,” says Belinda Jelf, Marketing Manager at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom.

Chops, Choons and Span of Dops 2 runs at Sibaya’s iZulu Theatre on July 3 and 4. Tickets R120 booked through Sibaya Box Office and Computicket.This adult comedy carries an 18 age restriction.
