Our favourites include the talented Tats Nkonzo (Johannesburg), the hilarious Mooky Cornish (Canada) & the legendary Marc Lottering (cape Ton)! Not forgetting the MC for the show Alan Committee, he’ll keep you entertained & laughing the entire night for sure! Fair warning though, do NOT arrive late for the show.
