THE LOSER (article first published : 2004-01-23)

The irrepressible Aaron McIlroy presents his jam-packed energy show The Loser at Hilton on January 24 at 19h30.

The Loser takes a slanted view of the new-age quick-fix positivity of motivational speaking and features a horde of strange and maniacal individuals introduced in McIlroy’s usual wacky style. He places the focus on humour through characterisation and takes the mickey out of motivational speaking.

The production is jam-packed with high energy and features the music of Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Shel Silverstein, Tom Waits, Lou Vega and a range of Elvis tunes. The audience meets Truscott Price, the world-renowned and unconventional motivational speaker, whose offbeat leaps in logic and his unfortunate tragi-comic past are a complete contradiction to his magnetic appeal and logical positivism.

The Loser is a musical comedy which provides light relief to the more serious side of motivational speaking and the affects it has on the lives of various characters, interspersed with some really good rock ‘n roll music, the show is a must see for anyone needing a good laugh and a thoroughly enjoyable evening’s entertainment.

Tickets R60. Bookings on 033 383 0126.
