My First Comedy Set

27 Apr

I had a dream, that one day, I will stand on stage and make people laugh.

Baas de BeerNow, I’ve been MC’ing on-and-off for roughly the past 12 years, the last 3 of them professionally. Yet I have never ventured into the sphere of stand-up comedy. Reason for this being that, well, ummm… I actually had no real excuse. My only issue was that I was unsure about my own funniness, and as a (humble brag) really good MC it would have been really shit if I bombed out in comedy.

Arcade Empire (I’ve told you about their food in the past) has recently started the #KAKFunny Comedy Sessions. Every last  thursday of the month, they bring in a few of South Africa’s most awesome comedians, and one or 2 n00bs. On this night, I was the n00b.

For the first time in my life, I was actually nervous about getting on stage to talk to people. This was a weird feeling, considering I’ve had thousands of people in front of me at Oppikoppi and other festivals, I’ve presented events to everyone from old age homes to super-high end business people, and on a weekly basis I deal with a bunch of fun and drunk people who have to make sense of what I’m saying.

All in all, my first set went very well. I will forever be grateful to Nina Hastie (the organiser) for putting me on the bill, as well as the comedians who performed that night for giving me feedback and hi5’s (Jason Goliath, Nick Goliath, Donovan Goliath and Dusty Rich). Also a BIG thanx to Werner Cloete, one of my personal favourite SA comedians who came to support and upon request, crit the shit outta me.
Lastly, thanx to the friends who came to support me, and Henno Kruger for the full video.

Have look at a bit of what I did, drop me a comment to tell me how awesome I am, or if you think I suck. I’m easy.

FREE TICKETS! Arcade Empire turns 2

11 Apr

Earlier this month I raved about Arcade Empire’s food. I might also have subtly mentioned that Arcade is the coolest live music venue in Pretoria, if not the whole of South Africa. If you have not yet been there, take my word for it… my word’s good 😉

It is therefor my pleasure to be able to give you some free tickets to party at Arcade Empire. This weekend, Arcade Empire is celebrating their 2nd birthday, and we get all the presents.

On Friday the following bands will be playing:

  • Bittereinder
  • Wrestlerish
  • Zebra & Giraffe
  • Love Glove Pyrotechnics

Here’s the link to Friday’s event: https://www.facebook.com/events/355509867893465/


On Saturday, they’re catering more for the electro junkies. I generally don’t do electro, mostly coz it’s shit, but even I have to admit that this line-up is kinda cool:

Main Stage:

  • – SIBOT
  • – LIVER

Second Stage:

  • – MR GREEN
  • – TWELV
  • – I AM NOIZE
  • – MINX

Here’s the link to Saturday’s event: https://www.facebook.com/events/208120349312396/

I am giving away 5 double tickets to Friday’s party. All you need to do is subscribe to my blog and tell me which one of Friday’s bands is your favourite. Also mention your twitter handle/e-mail address so that I can contact you.
Winners will be announced by Friday at 14:00.
