Chris Forrest, Deep Fried Man and Warren Robertson have joined forces for the hilarious ensemble show, Funnier Than Them showing at the Theatre on the Square in Sandton from the 21st to 25th of October. Funnier Than Them is a stand-up comedy show like no other. Blending elements of crowd interaction, improvisation and animation, it is guaranteed to deliver and evening of laughs from some of the country’s funniest comedians. The show was launched at the 2014 Grahamstown National Arts Festival to packed houses and received critical acclaim.
“An outstanding performance by three comedians who dazzle the audience with their jokes on political and social issues. A perfect show for adults that will keep audiences enthralled” – Cue 2014. “Funnier Than Them is very strong. Proper observational stuff; focusing on the important themes but skipping the clichés. Hallelujah!” – Bruce Dennill, CityVibe
The three comics have recently returned from their performance of the show at the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town, where their run ended with a sold-out show and a standing ovation. “If you don’t like stand-up comedy, Funnier Than Them will change your mind.” – Lili Radloff, Women24. The trio’s individual achievements in the comedy industry are considerable including television shows, films, performances at some of South Africa’s biggest comedy events as well as a number of awards and nominations under their belt.
Each comic has their own unique style. With Forrest’s dry one-liners and perfect comedy timing to Robertson’s dark, intelligent humour and Deep Fried Man’s blend of musical comedy and satire, there is something for everyone. They will also be joined by the legendary old-school comic, the animated MC, Gerry D Atric.
