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
audience.”

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

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 www.thecryptjazz.com

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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    name change which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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

    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
    audience.”

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

    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!

    A message from one of the Tokai forest Market organisers: “This market is important for the home based traders and the organizations that we support, how we depend on the community and also try service the area in which we situated. There will be no alcohol sold at the market but you are more than welcome to bring a picnic with champagne or a bottle of wine to enjoy under the trees (As long as things stay controlled).”

    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
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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.

    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
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, the management team has

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    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

    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
    audience.”

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    {image_1}

    The 2015 Discovery World Triathlon Series Cape Town will take place at the V&A Waterfront on 25 and 26 April and registration for para-triathletes is now open. This will be the fourth event in the ten city tour, which finishes in Chicago later this year. It is only the second time that a leg of the ITU World Triathlon Series will be hosted on the African continent, with the finish at the brand new Green Point Athletics Stadium.

    The first para-triathlete to register is well-known South African Oswald Kydd, who hopes to participate in the Paralympics in Brazil, 2016. Raised by hard-working parents, Kydd was brought up to never give up. A natural runner, he began competing as a young child.

    Says Kydd: “I was captain of my school’s cross-country team and received full colours for both athletics and cross-country. After school, I began cycling and found that not only did I love it, but had a natural talent for it. I would commute to work and back every day, clocking up to 70kms per day and would join the club ride on weekends. I once rode to Magaliesburg and back on a whim. This was just riding for fun! Then I entered the Tour of Zimbabwe and got my first taste of competition. From that day, I began my career in ‘licensed’ cycling. I went on to represent KZN and South Africa by winning bronze at the SA Time Trial Champs. I earned my provincial colours that year!”

    Kydd describes himself as determined, driven and motivated. He says: “I was an elite cyclist when I had my accident in 1997 ( aged 29). A truck rode over my leg and after two weeks in hospital, my right leg had to be amputated above the knee. I was determined to get back into cycling and  started to compete again in 1999. I won five gold medals in the SA Champs and established three South African track records.”

    Kydd adds that he needed more challenges, so started participating in triathlons in 2005. “I befriended the chief referee for Ironman and told him I’d like to do the Ironman sometime. He phoned me to say that the organisers were prepared to sponsor my entry to participate at the next event in 2006. I managed to do some swimming leading up to the event over the next 3 months. Luckily for me, I was able to use a racing wheelchair for the run in accordance with the rules. For the two weeks prior to the event, I didn’t swim or ‘run’ at all. At the start line it was my first time using a wetsuit!”

    He completed his first ironman in 2006 and have done three more since then.  He now has two World Triathlon Championships medals, including gold, which he won in Beijing. “I also have 3 African Triathlon Championships medals. I have now set my eyes on retaining my World Triathlon Championships title and participating in the Paralympics in 2016.”

    Kydd, aka Kamikaze, lives for winning. “I’ve fallen 120 times, which means I got up 120 times. Many people ask me what keeps me motivated, what keeps me pushing myself to new heights. My answer is simple - because I can! Guts and determination are two qualities I prize most. And coming second is not acceptable!"

    Kydd works an 8 hour day, standing on his leg all day. “Despite an aching back, I use my commute to work and back as part of my training, and I have to supplement it with early morning swimming training, running or long rides before work. Weekends are spent doing long rides or racing. I don’t have the benefit of dedicated sponsors, so prosthetics, transport, travel, nutrition and equipment have to be provided by myself and a few kind friends.”
    Para-triathletes in the PT2 to PT5 categories can enter as individuals and will participate in the Sprint distance (as opposed to the standard), which includes a 500m swim, 20km bike ride and 5km run.

    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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    {image_1}

    The 2015 Discovery World Triathlon Series Cape Town will take place at the V&A Waterfront on 25 and 26 April and registration for para-triathletes is now open. This will be the fourth event in the ten city tour, which finishes in Chicago later this year. It is only the second time that a leg of the ITU World Triathlon Series will be hosted on the African continent, with the finish at the brand new Green Point Athletics Stadium.

    The first para-triathlete to register is well-known South African Oswald Kydd, who hopes to participate in the Paralympics in Brazil, 2016. Raised by hard-working parents, Kydd was brought up to never give up. A natural runner, he began competing as a young child.

    Says Kydd: “I was captain of my school’s cross-country team and received full colours for both athletics and cross-country. After school, I began cycling and found that not only did I love it, but had a natural talent for it. I would commute to work and back every day, clocking up to 70kms per day and would join the club ride on weekends. I once rode to Magaliesburg and back on a whim. This was just riding for fun! Then I entered the Tour of Zimbabwe and got my first taste of competition. From that day, I began my career in ‘licensed’ cycling. I went on to represent KZN and South Africa by winning bronze at the SA Time Trial Champs. I earned my provincial colours that year!”

    Kydd describes himself as determined, driven and motivated. He says: “I was an elite cyclist when I had my accident in 1997 ( aged 29). A truck rode over my leg and after two weeks in hospital, my right leg had to be amputated above the knee. I was determined to get back into cycling and  started to compete again in 1999. I won five gold medals in the SA Champs and established three South African track records.”

    Kydd adds that he needed more challenges, so started participating in triathlons in 2005. “I befriended the chief referee for Ironman and told him I’d like to do the Ironman sometime. He phoned me to say that the organisers were prepared to sponsor my entry to participate at the next event in 2006. I managed to do some swimming leading up to the event over the next 3 months. Luckily for me, I was able to use a racing wheelchair for the run in accordance with the rules. For the two weeks prior to the event, I didn’t swim or ‘run’ at all. At the start line it was my first time using a wetsuit!”

    He completed his first ironman in 2006 and have done three more since then.  He now has two World Triathlon Championships medals, including gold, which he won in Beijing. “I also have 3 African Triathlon Championships medals. I have now set my eyes on retaining my World Triathlon Championships title and participating in the Paralympics in 2016.”

    Kydd, aka Kamikaze, lives for winning. “I’ve fallen 120 times, which means I got up 120 times. Many people ask me what keeps me motivated, what keeps me pushing myself to new heights. My answer is simple - because I can! Guts and determination are two qualities I prize most. And coming second is not acceptable!"

    Kydd works an 8 hour day, standing on his leg all day. “Despite an aching back, I use my commute to work and back as part of my training, and I have to supplement it with early morning swimming training, running or long rides before work. Weekends are spent doing long rides or racing. I don’t have the benefit of dedicated sponsors, so prosthetics, transport, travel, nutrition and equipment have to be provided by myself and a few kind friends.”
    Para-triathletes in the PT2 to PT5 categories can enter as individuals and will participate in the Sprint distance (as opposed to the standard), which includes a 500m swim, 20km bike ride and 5km run.

Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    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
    audience.”

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

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    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.

The exhibition will span the entire gallery space and is executed using a range of both traditional and unconventional materials including ink on paper, photography, video projection, packing tape, found objects, hand-made paper, automated dowsing rods, glue, mops, plastic and more.

    Buikspraak, translated literally into English as ‘gutspeak’ or, by definition, as ventriloquism, is used in both literary and colloquial contexts to question the sincerity behind the voice. Edwards explores the visceral signals (e.g. gut feelings) that bypass the rational and ideologically infused language centres of the brain and point instead to a phenomenology of presence, complicated by questions of agenda and authenticity: what is the gut, who is the puppeteer, when it speaks, who do I hear – how many voices inhabit this frilly place? These questions combine with a strong visual evocation of density, matter and space to speak of the processes of artistic creation – how the gut informs the marks made and the materials used; and to questions about being in the world, knowing what we know and our entanglement with the matter and environment.

    In contrast to these wider ontological concerns, there is a personal and localised enquiry into notions of place. For Edwards, place is an ongoing theme that draws on familial history in Barkly West, Kimberley, and on Afrikaner heritage and language. It is the gut level of language – inscribed as poetic imagery – and its connections to place that encourage a form of embodied cognition. Thus, Edwards looks to traversing the spaces between the two ‘languages’ – the gut brain and the thinking brain – both of which are ‘of the body’ yet which respond to different sensory inputs and have different feedback mechanisms.

    This work can also be read in relation to current research on neural activity in the gut and the microbiome; to themes of consiousness, alternative intelligence, posthumanism and deep ecology.

    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
    audience.”

    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 www.thecryptjazz.com

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.
