There is a saying that the world is headed to the gutter when society takes comedians seriously and thinks politicians are a joke. The Joburg Comedy Cartel comprising Alyn Adams, Vittorio Leonardi, Shaun Wewege and Warren Robertson are begging to not be taken too seriously, but guarantee their jokes are funnier than politicians. And they very seldom wallow in the gutter to get their laughs, which is more than you can say for the average vote-hound. These are four comedians who avoid the tired clichés and stereotypes that make up so much of South African comedy, but rather deliver laughs on a variety of subjects according to their individual sensibilities.
Houghtons magnificent Foxwood Theatre will host the Joburg Comedy Cartel over the coming months as they deliver their intelligent, left-of-centre style of stand-up. Each month will feature members of the Cartel and various guest performers.
The shows will take place on the first Friday of each month starting on 2nd March.
