Chris Forrest – He’s a Really Nice Guy

He speaks slow, but he thinks quick. Some call him South Africa’s answer to Steven Wright, others say “who is Steven Wright?” whilst others say, “we’re out of milk, can you please pick some up on your way home.” Chris Forrest, the deadpan face of South African comedy brings you his inaugural solo show “Chris Forrest – He’s a really nice guy”, which with his dry sense of humour and completely odd take on life promises to be a side splitting affair. For one show only, Chris will be performing his debut one man show at The Tesson Theatre, The Johannesburg Civic Theatre in Braamfontein on Wednesday, 26th of November.

With topics varying from the difficulties of being single, to his experiences aboard, to the joys of life in South Africa, there’s bound to be something for everyone. So make sure you wear a belt (to stop your sides splitting – duh) and come and enjoy “Chris Forrest – he’s a really nice guy”.
