THANK YOU VERY MUCH (article first published : 2006-07-23)

Following the success of Uncut The Penis Monologues which toured South Africa and the New Age romp Guru, which received a Durban Theatre Award nomination for Best New South African script, Durban actor-writer Clinton Marius returns with his hilarious new one-man comedy, Thank You Very Much.

The current obsession with stardom, Hollywood and the awards that the rich and famous heap upon themselves, are subjects of laughter in this light-hearted satire of cult of the celebrity.

Celebs that come under fire include Paris Hilton, George Michael, Whoopi Goldberg, Colin Farrell, Tina Turner, Cher, Ruby Wax, Angelina Jolie and Ellen Degeneres, among a whole clutch of others. Stand-up comedian Eubulus Tracy makes an appearance in cameo roles.

Presented in the format of the Oscars, Thank You Very Much includes comedy, dance and parodies of several famous songs. A multi-media component of the show includes a zany mix of filmed clips made in collaboration with the Durban University of Technology.

With so many people opting to stay home and watch movies on TV rather than going to the theatre, the show comically informs people that they can now support live theatre AND watch movies at the same time!

Thank You Very Much is directed by Caroline Smart and runs in the Playhouse Loft from September 2 to 18. Book at Computicket.
