'Love Factually' explores the complexities of relationships and dating in 2018. It's currently showing at Baxter Theatre in CT.

Comedian Alan Committie says the dating game isn't what it used to be.

The star of the hit show, 'Defending the Caveman', takes a fresh look at relationships in his new one-man show 'Love Factually'.

'Love Factually' explores the complexities of relationships and dating in 2018 and is currently showing at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town.

He quips about everything from Tinder, text breakups, and hookups, to online attractions, marriage and the single life.

I performed 'Defending the Caveman' for 963 performances over a very long period.

Alan Committie, comedian

I gave creative birth to 'Love Factually' about two years ago. It's my fresh look at relationships in 2018. Things have changed and they keep changing.

Alan Committie, comedian

The old book was 'Men are from Mars, women are from Venus', but we keep finding new planets and stars.

Alan Committie, comedian

It's comic and broad look at mostly heteronormative relationships.

Alan Committie, comedian

A little bit of empathy of both genders.

Alan Committie, comedian

The show runs at the Baxter until 16 June 2018. Tickets costs between R120-R160. Visit the Baxter website for more info.
