Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.

“This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The
brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy
Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular,
reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon
spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home
to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until
October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic
Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier
(Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of
the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March
Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape
Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.

After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has
decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change
seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The
name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider

Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new...............Cape Town
Comedy Club.

What will you choose Brubeck, Big Band or a bit of the blues?
Jazz Appreciation Month - April 2015

Every April, Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) highlights the glories of jazz as both a historical and a living treasure. Here is one special month to draw greater public attention to the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz and its importance to South African culture.

So, is jazz just for people that already love jazz and want to celebrate it further? 
The answer is yes and no!

Yes, this gives jazz-lovers a great excuse to participate in jazz-related activities for the month - but it also gives them the chance to introduce an exciting genre of music to those less familiar!

In Cape Town, The CRYPT Jazz Restaurant leads this initiative with a distinguished line-up of jazz musicians and jazz bands – everything from African Jazz to Gypsy Jazz to Cape Jazz to Classics in Jazz and Big Band Jazz. The exciting line-up for April includes pianist Darius Brubeck, vocalists Melanie Scholtz, Tina Schouw, Zoe Modiga, Soi Soi Queza and Amy Campbell, CT Tango Ensemble, Cape Dutch Connection, and the fabulous DELFT BIG BAND, amongst others. The CRYPT Jazz Restaurant will also celebrate its second anniversary during April. For more information visit

If nothing’s going on in your area there are still plenty of ways to get involved, perhaps watch some webcasts to get clued up on jazz’s cultural history, tune in to a jazz radio station or buy some new CDs and have a party with your friends. Jazz is a celebration of freedom and creativity, so parties and dancing are positively encouraged!

And don't forget that on 30 April it is International Jazz Day. UNESCO proclaimed the day in November 2011 and the aim of the day is to raise awareness of jazz in education, peace and unity.  The CRYPT Jazz Restaurant will host the fabulous DELFT BIG BAND conducted by Ian Smith on Thursday 30 April as part of International Jazz Day.

Funding support is received from CONCERTS SA for the performance of live music at THE CRYPT. CONCERTS SA is a Norwegian/South African initiative.

The CRYPT is open five days a week – from Tuesday till Saturday - serving drinks and dinner. ‘Live Jazz’ music is on offer in a relaxed, listening atmosphere on Tuesdays through Thursdays from 19:00 to 22:00 and from 20.00 to 23.00 on Fridays and Saturdays, with a cover charge of R75 per person. Parking is available in Queen Victoria Street and also in the Cathedral parking area. The venue is located on bus and taxi routes, and within walking distance of several city hotels and guest lodges.

The jazz programme changes daily, and is available online, at

Grant and Shaun: A Double Bill of Dance at the Baxter for a short season this April

In Grant and Shaun: A Double Bill of Dance, Cape Town artists Grant van Ster and Shaun Oelf, two of the hottest young talents on the local dance and theatre scenes, take to the Baxter’s Flipside stage for a short season, from 9 to 18 April, to perform a brand new work Most Honest Man and their critically acclaimed The Architecture of Tears.

With the premier of Most Honest Man, UCT graduates Mdu Kweyama and Alex McCarthy make their debut as artists-in-residence at the Baxter Theatre Centre for 2015, made possible by the Rolf-Stephan Nussbaum Foundation. For the production the two theatre-makers are supervised by the Baxter’s CEO and artistic director Lara Foot. Resident director Kweyama heads the production as director and choreographer, with dramaturgy and assistant direction by resident playwright McCarthy.

Based on Shakespeare’s Othello, Most Honest Man looks at the relationship between Othello (performed by Grant) and Iago (performed by Shaun), exploring the notions of sexual jealousy and its power to destroy. Through movement the relationship between the two characters is interrogation as they delve into issues such as trust, virtue, amorality, projection and isolation.

Last year they teamed up with dancer-musician Thabisa Dinga and choreographer-director Ananda Fuchs to create The Architecture of Tears, an exploration into the human responses to attraction beyond gender and social correctness. It has been performed to great acclaim at the 2014 Cape Town Fringe and Baxter Dance Festival and most recently at the 2015 Dance Umbrella in Johannesburg. For this season at the Baxter, Ciara Barron will perform the female role from 9 to 14 April, followed by Thabisa Dinga from 15 to 18 April.

The Architecture of Tears was visually inspired by a study of 100 Tears Photographed Through A Standard Light Microscope conducted by Rose-Lynn Fisher in 2013 which comments on falling lustfully, landing painfully, dusting off vigorously and confronting our complex and simple truths.

Blogger Sarah Robertson gushed, “Wow … I haven’t watched such exquisite dancers in … too long. Grant Van Ster and Shaun Oelf of FO8, along with Thabisa Dinga are masterful movers. Ananda Fuch’s challenging choreography makes for an excellent dance work. Skilful is an understatement.”

Whatsonincapetown said, “The movement of the trio of dancers is articulate, fluid and continuous” and agreed, saying 'brilliantly choreographed and danced with all the ease and aplomb and daring and precision one could wish for.” The Cape Times described it as “Performed with incredible tenderness and dexterity … this is another brave, boundary-pushing work by their Figure of Eight Dance Collective,” and Litnet called it “A phenomenal production by phenomenal artists.”

This exciting double bill of Most Honest Man and The Architecture of Tears will showcase their talents and further expand their repertoire which they have managed to build up in a short of time.

Grant and Shaun: A Double Bill of Dance previews on 9 April, opens on 10 April and runs until 18 April, at 7pm nightly, with a matinee on Saturday, 18 April at 3pm. Ticket prices are R60 for the preview, matinee and for the school performance on 16 April at 11am, and R100 for all other performances.

Booking is through Computicket on 0861 915 8000, online at or at any Shoprite Checkers outlet.

The Willowbridge Barnyard in Durbanville offers something completely different in the middle of April as the ultimate feel good banjo, fiddle and double bass led, blue-grass influenced rock show.

The spotlight falls on the folk, celtic and country inspired music of Mumford and Sons as the show celebrates the origins and emulators of this uplifting, stomping, banjo infused musical trend which has stormed the charts over the past few years.

Artists such as James Blunt, The Lumineers, Passenger, One Direction, One Republic, Imagine Dragons, Phillip Phillips, Avicii and our local Jeremy Loops and Matthew Mole have all been inspired by the Mumford sound.

They rub shoulders with infectious standards such as Dueling Banjos, The Devil Went Down to Georgia, The Soggy Bottom Boys’s Man of Constant Sorrow, Whiskey in the Jar and the Raggle Taggle Gypsy, all of which are bound to get the party going!

Presented by ace Eastern Cape-based production company Centrestage, the highly entertaining 7 piece lineup consists of a showcase of seasoned entertainers and top musicians who have performed throughout South Africa over the past 10 years.

The lineup comprises of Wayne Kallis, Aston Wylie and Hugo Kleinhans all on vocals, keyboards and guitar, with Gino Fabbri on drums, Andrew Warneke on double bass, with Colin Lyall on banjo and Nicholas Fidler on fiddle

The Mumford Revolution promises to take you on musical journey through the evolution from the American Country Bluegrass & Irish Celtic influences to the Mumford & Sons hipster phenomenon we know and enjoy today.

Songs such as James Blunt’s Bonfire Heart, One Direction’s Story of my Life, Daughtry’s Long live rock and roll, One Republic’s Counting Stars, American Author’s Best Day of My Life and Avicii’s Hey Brother, Wake Me Up and These Days and local lads Matthew Mole’s “Take Yours I’ll Take Mine” and Jeremy Loop’s “Skinny Jeans” all make it into the show by virtue of their driving kick-drum sound and celtic overtones.

The Revolution also takes in the likes of the Charlie Daniels band as well as the Dubliners and a selection of Irish sing-along songs.

A selection of popular Mumford and Sons songs such as Babel, I Will Wait, Little Lion Man and The Cave, amongst others are also featured.

The Mumford Revolution is a show to be enjoyed by young and old, hipsters and hillbillies alike!
