(Grant Bell, Marion Loudon & John Didlick)

The seventh World Happiness Report has been released and it seems we aren’t such a jolly bunch. Out of 156 countries, South Africa has been placed 106th.

Finland, home of Santa taking the top spot. Curiously, the top four happiest countries are all freezing.

Maybe there’s only so much your daily dose of Vitamin D can do.

Are you one of those South Africans who is tired of watching the same old re-runs on TV or sub-par performances by sports teams. Are you feeling depressed about the corruption and crime, load shedding, petrol price and poor service delivery?

Well, don’t worry. Don't Worry Be Happy, comes to Rhumbelow Theatre Durban to run from November 15 to 17, 2019.

The “new” Gee Jays trio featuring Grant Bell, Marion Loudon and John Didlick will provide you with a reason to be happy again. Songs and comedy sketches that will take the weight off your shoulders and put a smile on your dial
