THE LOSER RETURNS! (article first published : 2006-04-25)

The legend returns! Funnyman Aaron McIlroy is back by popular demand in The Loser. Hold onto your sides as Aaron hits the highs and lows of manipulative public address in his own uniquely devastating fashion - via a bunch of whacky stage persona led by Truscott Price, the world’s greatest motivational speaker.

Aaron’s smash hit comedy has played countless public and corporate venues throughout the country over the past few years, drawing back the curtain on motivational speaking at mind-numbing conferences and seminars, delighting countless stage and supper theatre audiences.

The Loser pushes the limits on corporate motivation and “sales-speak”. A multitude of outlandish and manically-deprived individuals are introduced in McIlroy’s wacky style. The audience meet Truscott Price, a most unconventional motivational speaker, whose offbeat leaps in logic and ill-fated tragi-comic past are a complete challenge to his “magnetic” appeal and illogical positivism.

The show is jam-packed with high energy antics interspersed with some great rock featuring Queen, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Lou Vega and not forgetting the “King of Rock” - Elvis.

Co-written and directed by Sue Montregge, The Loser’s musical direction is by Tim Pullen, with lighting by master of genre Mike Broderick. With its tradition of providing light relief the show takes a wickedly funny look at the sacred cows of motivational speaking. A must see for anyone needing a good laugh and a thoroughly enjoyable evening’s entertainment.

The Loser runs until May 14. Tickets R150pp for show Wednesdays to Saturdays at 19h00 include starters, main course and show (R120pp Tuesdays at 19h00 and Sundays at 12h30). Early booking for on 031-765 4197 is strongly advised.
