SNAAKS GENOEG & MY WĘRELD (article first published : 2007-03-24)

Big laughs come in small packages. Casper de Vries - short of stature, but a giant among South African comedians – returns to the small screen to celebrate 21 glorious years in the entertainment industry.

Two of his wildly successful stage performances, Snaaks Genoeg and My Węreld, have been packaged as a four-part series that goes out on M-Net and kykNET.

M-Net screens the first part of Snaaks Genoeg on March 26 at 22h20 and the second on April 2 at 22h20. My Węreld is broadcast on April 9 and 16 at 22h15. kykNET screens the shows on March 29, and April 5, 12 and 19 at 22h00.

To ensure that English viewers get full value of the shows, Casper has added hilarious subtitles to accompany his original Afrikaans stand-up routines and comedy sketches.

“Jokes can’t by translated directly; they simply fall flat. Thy need to be rewritten from scratch if they are to retain their zing,” says Casper. “In some instances, the subtitles are even funnier than the originals!”

The kykNET shows will go out without subtitles.
