Leading Durban comedy producers, Laughing Stock Comedy, presents Bruinos @ The Bat Comedy Festival.

Set to stage at The Bat Centre, Durban, from December 15 to 17; the event features 10 comics who are ready to bring on the funny. Comedy heavy weights Richelieu Beanouir, Neil Green and Jason Goliath lead the line-up which also boasts the likes of Arnotte Payne, Daryl Williams, Andrew Hughes, Kelvin Stoffels, Masood Boomgaard and more.

There will also be a special live music performance by Jet Wentworth and The Cabin Crew.

Festival Director Neil Green said: "This festival started out as "Bruinos Only" way back in 2008. It’s actually amazing to still have so many of the original members of that lineup still involved today. We have all veered off on different career trajectories, but it’s so good to bring the band back together for this celebration of Coloured culture through Comedy."

He added: "We just want to get everybody together for a good laugh at the end of what has been a very exciting year for good and bad reasons. We want to take all the bad and make it funny, and all the good and package it up and serve it up to our people. We love being on stage, we love our audiences and most importantly we love being Coloured. This is a celebration of everything we love."

Commenting on the musical collaboration with Jet Wentworth and The Cabin Crew, he said: "We are very excited to bring the extremely talented Jett Wentworth and his Band to the stage. Jett is a kindred spirit in music and entertainment. Its overdue that we introduce them to our audience. We have so much respect and appreciation for what they do and we want to share that with our fans."
