What started out as an intimate showcase to give up-and-coming comedians five minutes in the spotlight, has evolved into an extraordinary nugget of something quite unique, something magical, something unmistakably South African.

Now in its 6th year, this special little get together has exploded into an unmissable afternoon of mingling with the who’s who on the social scene. Add chilled Savanna ciders, Kaya FM DJ’s and the aroma of a delicious shisha nyama and you’ll start to get a feel for just how vibey the afternoon really is.

This all takes place in the theatre’s outdoor precinct before the showcase at 2:30pm and is included in your ticket.

The real entertainment starts at 4.30pm when 24 newcomers each get five minutes to show us what they’re made of.

• Produced by The Annual South African Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards
