(Schalk Bezuidenhout)

One of South Africa’s biggest up-and-coming Comedy Stars brings his hilarious one-man show to Durban!

You may have seen Schalk Bezuidenhout on TV: he’s had his own Comedy Central Special, and more recently starred in White Christmas Comedy Special (aired on MNet, DSTV BoxOffice).

He was Trevor Noah’s opening act for no less than five weeks at the Teatro at Montecasino in 2015 and is also a Comics’ Choice Award 2015 recipient! You may even have seen him tearing up the Durban Club Comedy scene recently.

Now, after a completely sold-out run in Cape Town, this hilarious Afrikaans boy brings his highly anticipated debut one-man comedy show to Durban!

“Coming from a community where your mother’s breast milk would be brannewyn en coke, you’d walk kaalvoet to school, and hide your lunch money when a black man walked past”, Schalk explains how he perceives the world through his boerewors spectacles.

Described by comedy reviewer, Helen Herimbi, as “a comedian with unique material and delivery, who stands out in a sea of stand-up comedians”, this show from one of SA’s hottest rising comedy stars is guaranteed to have you in stitches!

Presented by On Fire Comedy, Schalk Bezuidenhout performs at the Durban Jewish Club on September 16 and 17 at 20h00. Tickets R100 at or R120 at the door. The Durban Jewish Club is situated at 44 K E Masinga Road, North Beach, Durban.
