Shimmy Isaacs and Tina C at the FNB Variété Festival in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
The FNB Variété Festival has taken Cape Town’s city centre by storm and two of its stars, comedienne Shimmy Isaacs and American country music singer Tina C, are ensuring that festival goers have their funny bones tickled pink.
The Variété Festival runs until Saturday, October 20, 2012, and includes international theatre hit Faulty Towers: the Dining Experience, South Africa’s Marc Lottering in cabaret and Canadian’s singing sensation Sharron Matthews.
From Tina’s tongue-in-cheek ballads and line-dancing, at the Taj Cape Town Hotel’s Twankey Bar, to Shimmy recounting her life, at the Crypt at St George’s Cathedral, these ladies know how to spice up your week!
In the video below Tina and Shimmy tell me about their acts and why they #LoveCapeTown.
