Cape Town Comedy Club presents Jesters in the Park – Season 2 to be held at the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre in Wynberg, from Thursday January 31 to Saturday February 2 2018.

A Jester; a person who is given to witticisms, jokes, and pranks, especially at a medieval court. A jester is sometimes also called ‘the fool’.

A few hundred years since Shakespeare and so much has changed, but also so little …

Hosted by Rob van Vuuren, who is no stranger to this stage as a Shakespearian actor, and produced by Kurt Schoonraad’s Cape Town Comedy Club, Cape Town’s only dedicated comedy club at the V&A Waterfront and rated one of the top ten comedy clubs in the world, Jesters in the Park – Season 2, showcases four of South African’s top comedians as they ‘hold court’ and ‘fool around’ to tackle the social commentary of the day, under the stars.

The line-up (subject to change), includes Dylan Skews, Phil de Lange and Reagen Allen and promises to have us laughing at the stars, the world and ourselves! Best enjoyed with friends and family.

“Prepare for mirth, for mirth becomes a feast.”

Tickets range from R100 – R150 with special offers for early bird bookings, block bookings (over 8) and there are concession prices for schools and seniors.
