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.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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.

    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.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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

    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.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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.

    Theatre goers will be delighted to hear that the highly acclaimed John is back in Cape Town and can be seen at the Artscape Arena from 21 - 30 May 2015. This production is written and performed by Andre Lombard and directed by Jeremeo le Cordeur, the cast includes Melissa Haiden. This play has been classified as 16SNL.

    John is the resonating story of a highly intelligent man. The only thing that makes sense in his life are numbers, until he falls in love and has his first sexual experience. It starts haunting him, and as he grows older he withdraws deeper into himself, struggling to interact with people on a social level. The story focuses on John’s journey as he delves in to the underworld of sex workers in the hope of finding a replacement for his first love, through them.

    In essence, this story explores the sex worker industry – it’s not a pretty story and can often make you feel very uncomfortable. “It’s all too easy to forget that behind every sex worker is a story, and a motivation for what they do,” says Lombard, “When asked in preschool what she would like to be she’s grown up, no little girl will ever say she hopes to be a sex worker one day.”

    “Sex workers are all too often judged on assumptions and stereotyped. We applaud the attempt to reflect the reality and complexity of sex worker’s lives in this play,” says Ishtar Lakhani of Sweat (the Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce).

    Seen through the eyes of John, viewers are granted access into the controversial world of the sex workers that live on the periphery of our society. When you hire a sex worker, you are dealing with more than just flesh – you are dealing with a person.

    Le Cordeur, through Vulture Productions, has made a name for himself for courageously breaking away from the status quo and integrating different mediums, genres and multi-media art forms into his productions. Tannie Dora Goes Bos, seen last year at the Arstcape, received high praise from critics for its quirky, high octane take on a murder mystery. John continues this trend, exploring ways to inspire audiences and offering an edgy thought provoking theatre piece.

    Theatre goers will be delighted to hear that the highly acclaimed John is back in Cape Town and can be seen at the Artscape Arena from 21 - 30 May 2015. This production is written and performed by Andre Lombard and directed by Jeremeo le Cordeur, the cast includes Melissa Haiden. This play has been classified as 16SNL.

    John is the resonating story of a highly intelligent man. The only thing that makes sense in his life are numbers, until he falls in love and has his first sexual experience. It starts haunting him, and as he grows older he withdraws deeper into himself, struggling to interact with people on a social level. The story focuses on John’s journey as he delves in to the underworld of sex workers in the hope of finding a replacement for his first love, through them.

    In essence, this story explores the sex worker industry – it’s not a pretty story and can often make you feel very uncomfortable. “It’s all too easy to forget that behind every sex worker is a story, and a motivation for what they do,” says Lombard, “When asked in preschool what she would like to be she’s grown up, no little girl will ever say she hopes to be a sex worker one day.”

    “Sex workers are all too often judged on assumptions and stereotyped. We applaud the attempt to reflect the reality and complexity of sex worker’s lives in this play,” says Ishtar Lakhani of Sweat (the Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce).

    Seen through the eyes of John, viewers are granted access into the controversial world of the sex workers that live on the periphery of our society. When you hire a sex worker, you are dealing with more than just flesh – you are dealing with a person.

    Le Cordeur, through Vulture Productions, has made a name for himself for courageously breaking away from the status quo and integrating different mediums, genres and multi-media art forms into his productions. Tannie Dora Goes Bos, seen last year at the Arstcape, received high praise from critics for its quirky, high octane take on a murder mystery. John continues this trend, exploring ways to inspire audiences and offering an edgy thought provoking theatre piece.

Each guest an expert in their field, mainly historians and grail lore fanatics, had been earnestly working together over the past few months. Finally their collaboration at a dig site underneath the mythical Stonehenge had resulted in triumph.

    The wine flowed abundantly and everyone partook in excited discussions ranging from Arthurian lore to Stonehenge legend when the festivities came to an untimely halt. Following a petrified scream, emanated from the library, the partygoers discovered the body of Kathleen Kenyon-Loret; drenched in an unhealthy pool of her own blood. As a storm started to rage outside the ominous castle walls, suspects need to discover the identity of the killer before another victim joins Kathleen in the hereafter.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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.

    Theatre goers will be delighted to hear that the highly acclaimed John is back in Cape Town and can be seen at the Artscape Arena from 21 - 30 May 2015. This production is written and performed by Andre Lombard and directed by Jeremeo le Cordeur, the cast includes Melissa Haiden. This play has been classified as 16SNL.

    John is the resonating story of a highly intelligent man. The only thing that makes sense in his life are numbers, until he falls in love and has his first sexual experience. It starts haunting him, and as he grows older he withdraws deeper into himself, struggling to interact with people on a social level. The story focuses on John’s journey as he delves in to the underworld of sex workers in the hope of finding a replacement for his first love, through them.

    In essence, this story explores the sex worker industry – it’s not a pretty story and can often make you feel very uncomfortable. “It’s all too easy to forget that behind every sex worker is a story, and a motivation for what they do,” says Lombard, “When asked in preschool what she would like to be she’s grown up, no little girl will ever say she hopes to be a sex worker one day.”

    “Sex workers are all too often judged on assumptions and stereotyped. We applaud the attempt to reflect the reality and complexity of sex worker’s lives in this play,” says Ishtar Lakhani of Sweat (the Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce).

    Seen through the eyes of John, viewers are granted access into the controversial world of the sex workers that live on the periphery of our society. When you hire a sex worker, you are dealing with more than just flesh – you are dealing with a person.

    Le Cordeur, through Vulture Productions, has made a name for himself for courageously breaking away from the status quo and integrating different mediums, genres and multi-media art forms into his productions. Tannie Dora Goes Bos, seen last year at the Arstcape, received high praise from critics for its quirky, high octane take on a murder mystery. John continues this trend, exploring ways to inspire audiences and offering an edgy thought provoking theatre piece.

    The legendary Delheim Wine Estate is offering avid foragers two ex-cep-tional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement on 30 - 31 May 2015 and 3 - 4 July 2015.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch in the historic Vat Cellar which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    “No one should fear the fungi! I will give a short lecture on edible and poisonous mushrooms before we trot off into the forest, so that you know how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly and really enjoy this magical spot at Delheim. There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no bold, old mushroom hunters,” shares Gary who goes by the moniker The Mushroom Hunter.

    “Most mushroom pickers are very tight-lipped about the whereabouts of their sources so this is a golden opportunity,” adds an elated Gary who can spot a camouflaged porcini in no time.

    “Mushrooms simmering in garlic butter are one of my all-time favourite smells and evoke fond childhood memories. It is just so much more rewarding if you know where it came from...and even better so if you have foraged it yourself,” adds Nora who grew up on the farm and learned to pick wild mushrooms from her mother.       

    There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat.

    This exploration of the hidden world of the fungi starts at 10am.

    Cost: R595 per person

    A ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine.

    Pre-booking is essential and given the intimate nature of these events, no group bookings are allowed.

    For more information or to secure your spot contact +27 (0)21 888 4607 / +27 (0)79 7353 257 or send an email to restaurant@delheim.com.

    Delheim was the originator of the now-popular concept of fungi foraging events in the country and has since definitely managed to raise awareness for mushroom foraging in South Africa. Although these events take place at the time of year when there is the largest chance of finding wild mushrooms and the ‘moon is right’, Delheim cannot guarantee that you will find any on the day.

    Casa Labia presents an Annelie Venter exhibition from 3 - 31 May 2015.

    A walkabout of the exhibition with the artist Annelie Venter will take place on Saturday, 16 May 2015 at 11:00.

    Timed to coincide with her 60th birthday, Annelie Venter has put together a body of artworks looking back at the life she and her ancestors’ have lived, particularly in the context of living and farming in near desert like conditions.

    Taking the verse: “The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more (Psalm 103 15-16)” as inspiration, and working with photographs taken by her mother and a memoir written by her father, Venter is exploring the transience of life.

    The exhibition comprises a series of images of family members and close up studies of the delicate and ephemeral blossoming of the flowers that bloom in the Sandveldt area where she lives and farms.

    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.

    The legendary Delheim Wine Estate is offering avid foragers two ex-cep-tional weekends of wild mushroom hunts in its private forest, for enthusiasts to unearth theses elusive, seasonal delicacies and revel in fungi spotting excitement on 30 - 31 May 2015 and 3 - 4 July 2015.

    These foraging excursions are led by Delheim’s Nora Sperling-Thiel and Gary Goldman, a seasoned field expert and mushroom cultivator, and will see intimate groups setting foot for a magical ‘walk on the wild side’, in search of these delicious gems, lurking right there under one’s nose. The whole idea is for visitors to hone their foraging feelers and become comfortable in picking their own mushrooms, whilst embracing the lost art of seasonal foraging.

    After an exhilarating morning, engaging in ‘the silent hunt’ amidst towering pine trees and indigenous flora, foragers will be rewarded with a mushroom-inspired three-course lunch in the historic Vat Cellar which promises to leave the taste buds euphoric.

    “No one should fear the fungi! I will give a short lecture on edible and poisonous mushrooms before we trot off into the forest, so that you know how to identify the good, the bad and the ugly and really enjoy this magical spot at Delheim. There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no bold, old mushroom hunters,” shares Gary who goes by the moniker The Mushroom Hunter.

    “Most mushroom pickers are very tight-lipped about the whereabouts of their sources so this is a golden opportunity,” adds an elated Gary who can spot a camouflaged porcini in no time.

    “Mushrooms simmering in garlic butter are one of my all-time favourite smells and evoke fond childhood memories. It is just so much more rewarding if you know where it came from...and even better so if you have foraged it yourself,” adds Nora who grew up on the farm and learned to pick wild mushrooms from her mother.       

    There are only 40 spots available per day as Delheim treasures a delicate balance between sharing their ‘family passion’ and protecting their natural habitat.

    This exploration of the hidden world of the fungi starts at 10am.

    Cost: R595 per person

    A ticket includes a choice of an exclusive mushroom foraging basket or a Delheim bottle of wine and two glasses to take home; the insightful lecture on mushroom identification; the forest forage, as well as the mushroom-themed three course lunch and a glass of Delheim wine.

    Pre-booking is essential and given the intimate nature of these events, no group bookings are allowed.

    For more information or to secure your spot contact +27 (0)21 888 4607 / +27 (0)79 7353 257 or send an email to restaurant@delheim.com.

    Delheim was the originator of the now-popular concept of fungi foraging events in the country and has since definitely managed to raise awareness for mushroom foraging in South Africa. Although these events take place at the time of year when there is the largest chance of finding wild mushrooms and the ‘moon is right’, Delheim cannot guarantee that you will find any on the day.
