IN partnership with Savanna Premium Cider and East Coast Radio, On Fire Comedy proudly brings you another run of top-class comedy shows featuring some of SA’s hottest comedians sharing the stage with Durban’s best acts!

This month, Durban’s in for a real treat with well-known SA funny man (and movie star!) – Chris Forrest (on tour from JHB).

Best known for his starring role on TV’s hilarious Pure Monata show, for his extensive TV ad campaigns as well as roles in several movies (Straight Outta Benoni, White Wedding, Blitz Patrollie), Chris Forrest has been on the forefront of SA’s comedy scene for over 10 years now.

He’s hosted and headlined some of the biggest shows in the country, including “The Heavyweight Comedy Jam” and “Blacks Only”, and has also performed internationally at the Edinburgh Festival and at London’s Lyric Theatre.
He speaks slowly but he thinks quickly, with his unique, ‘deadpan’ sense of humour making him one of the country’s most recognised stand-up comedians.

Chris will be supported throughout the week by some of Durban’s top acts as well as comics from ‘out of town’.
These include Gavin Kelly (JHB), Al Prodgers (JHB) and Westley Cockrell (JHB).
Other funny locals include Arnotte Payne, Kams Govender, Rory Petzer (East Coast Radio), Mo Vawda, Masood Boomgaard, Kelvin Stoffels, Some Blaqq Guy and Kelvin Stoffels.

With five different shows over four days, Durban comedy is on fire, so be sure to catch a show near you!
