CONNEXXIONS OF COMEDY (article first published : 2008-06-23)

Connexxions of Comedy featuring four of South Africa’s top comic acts - Kevin Perkins (a.k.a Michael Naicker™), Malcolm Ferreira, Martin Jonas and Magicman - take to the stage at the iZulu Theatre from July 2 for a short run.

Kevin Perkins, host of the show, is a household name in South Africa and has created a successful brand out of his Michael Naicker™ character. Michael Naicker™, or ‘Super Mike’, to his friends, is the super-cool, rebel-without-a-clue, South African Indian comedy character. Considered by Perkins to be his alter ego, Mike has literally captured the imagination of South Africans, moving his creator himself to admit, "I've created a monster".

Malcolm Ferreira has been working the South African comedy scene since 2001 and has gained extensive experience in many different areas of the industry. He is an accomplished corporate comedian, MC and conference facilitator. The Dr Phil of political incorrectness, this Pretoria-born boy unveils euphemisms for what they are. He has performed on stages across South Africa, and has travelled to Dublin, Dubai, Sydney, and to the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where harsh critic “The Scotsman” billed him as the highlight of the Free South African comedians’ showcase.

Martin Jonas, the boykie from Potchefstroom via Kempton Park is part of the fresh-faced future of comedy in South Africa. Discovered at South Africa's first real comedy club, Hysterix in Johannesburg, Martin has impressed audiences with his novel style and pertinent observational humour. He is South African to his fingertips and was one of the few performers to receive a standing ovation at the inaugural Smirnoff Mule Comedy Festival at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town in 1997.

Magic Man (Andrew Eland) has travelled immensely doing his unique brand of dazzling stage and street magic. He presents a hilarious combination of magic and comedy - this is South Africa’s answer to the iconic magician David Blaine.

Connexxions of Comedy promises a truly hilarious, side-splitting night out. There is a strict age restriction of 18 years. The show runs at the iZulu Theatre at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom from July 2 to 5 at 20h00. Tickets booked through Sibaya Box-Office on 031 580 5555.
