Johannesburg, 18 July 2012: Comedy fans can’t miss Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker’s – the hottest stand-up comedy nite in Jo’burg. Taking place at Parker’s Comedy & Jive the last Wednesday of every month, Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker’s showcases the best established and up-and-coming comedians in a chilled and fun environment.

Dead-pan comedian Chris Forrest gets top billing at the July edition of Comedy Central Presents…Live At Parker’s, the must-see comedy showcase from Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122). Joining Forrest at the mic on Wednesday 25 July for Jo’burg’s hottest comedy gig will be Kedibone Mulaudzi, Malcolm Ferreria and Dalisa Chaponda.

Having been at the forefront of South Africa’s comedy scene for close to ten years now, Chris Forrest’s unique dry sense of humour has made him one of the country’s most popular comedians. Forrest cut his comedy teeth in TV shows such as the “Pure Monate Show” and in numerous successful ad campaigns such as Sasol’s volunteer Olympic coach “Coach Joe”, the “Yo” guy for the Vodacom Challenge, the voice of the adorable “Buddy” for Toyota and the funny white African in the Nando’s campaign “Only i-Best For Ama-Visitors”. A regular on South “The Heavyweight Comedy Jam” and an honorary black man on the hugely successful “Blacks Only Show”, Forrest is also the regular host of the “King Size Comedy Shows” which regularly play to audiences of three thousand or more.

In-demand comedian, Kedibone Mulaudzi’s many fans include all three South African State Presidents (Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and President Jacob Zuma) and two Nobel Peace Prize winners (Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu). Kedibone’s proudly South African material covers an eclectic range of subjects from childhood to daily life, observations, current affairs, a dose of political humour and all those subjects that people just don’t talk about.

Malcolm Ferreira is one of a handful of South African comedians who can claim to have the “wow” factor. A comedy genius capable of delivering a world class performance any day of the week, Malcolm’s hysterical observations and keen wit have made him a firm favourite with audiences across South Africa and around the world.

Daliso Chaponda is a Malawian stand-up comedian and writer who has performed and been published all over the world; a versatile comedian, Chaponda effortlessly changes his comedy according to his audience – performing an adult-only set at a strip club one day and the next at an all-ages one hour show about faith and family at a Christian Festival and taking it all in his stride.

    An old man was critically ill. Feeling that death was near, he
    called his lawyer. “I want to become a lawyer. How much is
    it or the express degree you told me about?”

    “It’s $50,000,” the lawyer said. “But why? You’ll be dead soon,
    why do you want to become a lawyer?”

    “That’s my business! Get me the course!”

    Four days later, the old man got his law degree. His lawyer
    was at his bedside, making sure his bill would be paid.

    Suddenly the old man was racked with fits of coughing and
    it was clear that this would be the end. Still curious, the
    lawyer leaned over and said, “please, before it’s too late,
    tell me why you wanted to to get a law degree so badly before
    you died?”

    In a faint whisper, as he breathed his last, the old man said,
    “One less lawyer . . .”

    A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office.
    After the check-up, the doctor took the wife aside and
    said, “If you don’t do the following, your husband will
    surely die”.

    1.Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast and send
    him off to work in a good mood.

    2.At lunch time, make him a warm, nutritious meal and
    put him in a good frame of mind before he goes back
    to work.

    3.For dinner, fix an especially nice meal, and don’t
    burden him with household chores.

    4.Have sex with him several times a week and satisfy
    his every whim.

    On the way home, the husband asked his wife what the doctor
    had told her.

    “You’re going to die,” she replied.

  3. Muhammed Kaleem says:

    On reaching his plane seat a man is surprised to see a parrot strapped in next to him. He asks the stewardess for a coffee where upon the parrot squawks “And get me a whisky you cow!” The stewardess, flustered, brings back a whisky for the parrot and forgets the coffee.

    When this omission is pointed out to her the parrot drains its glass and bawls “And get me another whisky you idiot”. Quite upset, the girl comes back shaking with another whisky but still no coffee.

    Unaccustomed to such slackness the man tries the parrot’s approach “I’ve asked you twice for a coffee, go and get it now or I’ll kick you”.

    The next moment, both he and the parrot have been wrenched up and thrown out of the emergency exit by two burly stewards. Plunging downwards the parrot turns to him and says “For someone who can’t fly, you complain too much!”
