Funnyman Nik Rabinowitz goes green

Nik Rabinowitz is producing the world's first green comedy show powered by solar panels and bio-fuel generators.

Eskom and South Africa's electricity problems are never out of the headlines for long. The cutting edge comedian is taking up the cause of our country's much lamented power struggle in his inimitable style.

South Africa's self-professed No.1 Jewish Xhosa-speaking comic has seen the light and will be producing his most socially conscious production yet.

"Power Struggle" is a conceptual show and will be run on renewable energy. It will take the audience through a comic journey across the history of power.

We got the idea to do a show that's the history of energy/power, across the ages, because the issues are obviously important right now.

Nik Rabinowitz, comedian

Rabinowitz explained that the green comedy show is installing solar panels and bio-fuel generators in the Baxter theatre to power the show.

Don't miss out on Power Struggle, which premieres at the Baxter Theatre, Cape Town and runs from March 29th to April 16th, 2016.

Tickets cost from R120 to R195, via Computicket or 0861 915 8000 (age restriction PG14).
