RAINER HERSCH RETURNS (article first published : 2001-06-10)

Des and Dawn Lindberg first brought top British comedian, Rainer Hersch to South Africa in 1999 for a sold-out tour of his hilarious Master Class. In June he returns to South Africa direct from touring Australia and New Zealand with his new show All Classical Music Explained Too.

With his unique brand of zany whimsical humour based on a lifetime love affair with classical music, Rainer Hersch takes us on a tour de farce of crotchets, quavers and crescendos. He says: “When I was ten years old my parents took me to the opera. It was an experience that changed my life. I was bored out of my brains. Looking back, so was most of the audience. Now, older and wiser I have pieced together the story of my life in music and wreak my terrible revenge. Ever wondered why people give up playing musical instruments? What soloists do when they are not actually playing? What Mozart stole from ABBA? - It's all here.”

Rainer Hersch will delight South African audiences with razor sharp stand-up, comic routines and piano playing like you have never heard.

There will be performances in Durban at the Playhouse on June 12 at 20h00 (book through TicketWeb) and Hilton College Theatre at 20h00 (book on 033: 343-0126)
