Bring your youngsters, bring your aged and even bring your foreign visitors who couldn’t get a flight home and come and have a riotous laugh and a gleeful giggle with South African funnyman, Alan Committie as he returns to Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino theatre for a whirlwind of 10 performances only of his critically and commercially acclaimed stand up comedy special!

2020 has been quite the year for surprises and so, in that spirit, he will take a slightly skewered look at events from the past year, outline the comically bizarre possibilities for the following 12 months and try to make audiences laugh their way through the eye-popping confusion of modern-day living. 

Committee will talk about Jerusalema, Heidi en Klara and other 80’s tv deceits, the frustration of autocorrect, the lure of the finger biscuit and the spectacle of wearing glasses…or perhaps not talk about any of these things. Because December is some days away and things are moving very fast.

We live in a world that thrives on mistruths, fake news, white lies and "mild inconsistencies"… and that’s just on your first date! Wait till you really get to know each other!

We have all become Lying Kings in our own little way. Despite our best efforts to fight it. Committie is here to unpack all the hilarious collateral damage that we have to encounter. 

Plus, if you’re lucky, Committie will perform the entire opening sequence of the Lion King by himself playing all the animals except for the Kwagga (for legal reasons)….
