(Aaron McIlroy)

Stand by for a fresh new laugh-a-line theatre experience from South Africa’s ‘Master of Mirth! Set to premiere at UKZN’s Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre in Durban from May 19 to June 5 2016, Comedy Masterclass is the latest offering from Aaron McIlroy, the artist that brought you Abbamaniacs, The Loser, and most recently The Ranga.

Join McIlroy as he delves into the science that underpins the world’s oldest coping mechanism, a Sense of Humour. Co-written by McIlroy and Patrick Kenny, and directed by Kenny, Comedy Masterclass is a surreal, comedic roller-coaster ride into the world of laughter, where the rules are subjective and what one person finds funny another may cringe at!

Produced by MacBob Productions, Comedy Masterclass plays at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from May 19 to June 5, with performances at 19h30 from Tuesdays to Saturdays and at 18h00 on Sundays. Tickets R120 to R145. For block booking discounts, call Ailsa Windsor on 083 250 2690 or email

Booking is through Computicket on 0861 915 8000.
