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.
