Comedic legend Kurt Schoonraad chats about how having his 'laatie' changed his life and how he handles parenting.

South African comedian and actor Kurt Schoonraad has learned that parenting is no joke.

When he's not running the Cape Town Comedy Club, he's a husband and father to his 10-year-old son, Jack.

The comedic legend says his life changed drastically after the birth of their son and he and his wife have to juggle two businesses.

Schoonraad says parenting is made up of a lot of apologies.

RELATED: Parenting is a journey, says comedian Stuart Taylor

The thing about being a parent is that you become very accustomed to apologising about things you aren't aware of.

Kurt Schoonraad, Comedian

There's a clear, present line pre and post child.

Kurt Schoonraad, Comedian

We've got two family businesses and then I perform at night as well, it's a bit of a juggle.

Kurt Schoonraad, Comedian

I treat my son as an inexperienced adult because that's what he is. I don't treat him like a child.

Kurt Schoonraad, Comedian

Schoonraad speaks candidly with CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about how he grew up and his parenting style.
