David Hasselhoff in Cape Town: Photos from the Loerie Awards
David “The Hoff” Hasselhoff hosted the Sunday night leg of the 2011 Loerie Awards in Cape Town. Dynamic, entertaining and animated, he delighted the 1 500-strong crowd.

Chants of “Hoff, Hoff, Hoff” rang out as he introduced himself.
The Hoff is most famous for his roles in television series like Baywatch and Knight Rider.
The Baywatch theme song accompanied his entrance and The Hoff hammed it up for the crowd.
Executive Mayor of Cape Town Patricia de Lille joined him on stage. Unfortunately she did not break into a slow-motion run as she approached the legendary television lifesaver.
The Hoff took all criticism in his stride, responding to hecklers with a barrage of “Hoff” jokes.
Before the show The Hoff was kept busy with his bevy of beauties. They later joined him on stage where the actor/singer performed a song.
Throughout the event he made light of his career in television as well as some of the scandals he has supposedly been involved in off screen.
”Don’t hassel The Hoff,” reads the T-shirt. “I feel ‘Hoffle’ that I can’t stay longer in Cape Town,” was just one of many bad jokes.
De Lille thoroughly enjoyed the event and said straight afterwards: “We want to keep the Loeries in Cape Town.” And keep The Hoff here too, perhaps?
