Jokers In July at Emperors Palace

Get your stomach muscles ready, because this is an unmissable feast for comedy lovers! Jokers in July will take place over the first two weekends of the month, and will feature a different comedian each night!

If you’re looking for some comical relief to rid you of those winter blues, then be sure not to miss out on Jokers In July at the magnificent Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace! Catch a variety of comedy stylings, from some of South Africa’s most popular and topical comedians, including Nik Rabinowitz, Marc Lottering, Loyiso Gola, Carvin Goldstone and Jonathan from RadioRaps.

What is it?

There will be loads of fun in store for you at Emperors Palace this July! To kick off the comedy festival on 3 July, the whole family can catch Durban-based funny man, Carvin Goldstone, with his no swearing, family-friendly show – Coloured President, which will portray his views on South African as well as world politics.

The hysterically funny Nik Rabinowitz will set the stage ablaze with his razor-sharp humour on 4 July with What the EFF. Guaranteed to raise some eyebrows, Rabinowitz’s fast-paced commentary on what’s been making headlines, and behind the scenes, will leave the audience in stitches. No under 18’s will be permitted.

Loyiso Gola’s State of the Nation will be performed on 10 July, focusing on the recent political shenanigans that have made headlines. The show will leave the audience in non-stop laughter as the outspoken Gola unpacks the current affairs of the past six months. Gola will use his unique brand of humour to remind audiences that there’s almost always a lighter side to every serious matter. No under 18’s will be permitted.

The award-winning Marc Lottering will share his best and most memorable stories and anecdotes in My Favourite Stories on 11 July. Featuring a selection of his best work from the past 17 years, Lottering will provide audiences with a comedy overdose and prove why he’s considered one of the country’s best comedians. No under 18’s will be permitted.

Last, but certainly not least, YouTube wonder, Jonathan from RadioRaps will round off the comedy feast with two shows on 5 and 12 July at 15:00. With a strong fan base, Jonathan is always eager to share tips, from bar etiquette and how to play golf like a pro, to giving love advice. Parental supervision is advised.
