VLISMAS OFFERS NEUROTRASH (article first published : 2003-02-18)

Choosing his home town to launch his new show, acclaimed stand-up comic John Vlismas will present Neurotrash presented by East Coast Radio and NEAR Entertainment at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from March 18 to April 4.

Well-known for his previous hit shows Mr Ballisitic, Man In Black and Aggravated Assault, John Vlismas looks at IT for material for his new production. And there’s plenty of scope, if his reading of current technology trends is anything to go by. Some of the intriguing questions he poses are: “Is it possible to programme a toilet to suit all members of the family?” and “Should the fridge have its own modem and talk to the phone?”

In the last five years John has become the youngest local stand-up comedian to work on a fully-fledged international theatre circuit. He is also the only South African to be invited back to perform at the biggest comedy festival in the world Just Pour Rire (French for “just for laughs”!) in Montreal, Canada.

NEAR Entertainment has produced John's three previous one-man shows which all ran to full houses and rave reviews. He was also the support act for international superstar Steve Wright at the Standard Bank arena on the Johannesburg leg of his tour. He writes for the Jerry Springer show, is about to launch a book and promises that there is a new movie in the offing. He also hosted a popular live music and chat show on M-Net called Live at Five.

Book at Computicket.
