Capetonians can treat themselves to some lighthearted relief this week as the biggest names in stand-up comedy take to the stage.
The Big 5 Comedy Show, which takes place on the 5th and 6th of October, will be hosted at the Artscape Opera House.
Funnyman Barry Hilton will join comedy heavyweights Stuart Taylor, Nik Rabinowitz, Kagiso Lediga and Riaad Moosa to entertain locals with their unique routines.
Hilton explains that it the first time ever that all comedians will perform on the same night.
He says that audience members can expect a family-friendly set from him.
I'm not sure about the other guys, but I stay away completely from politics. I stay far away from religion and politics bores me.— Barry Hilton, comedian
The two-night show starts at 8pm and costs between R150 – R280.
Tickets can be booked via Computicket.
