It’s almost unbelievable that it has been eight years since the very first 46664, It’s No Joke comedy show. I remember sitting at Sun City’s Superbowl in stitches back then — and have no doubt that there will be plenty of laughs to go around this year.

On August 24 at the Teatro at Montecasino, the Nelson Mandela Centenary 2018: A Night to Remember Comedy Show will be underway. The acts who graced the stage at the first 46664 show will be reunited this time around.

They include Tumi Morake, Marc Lottering, Riaad Moosa, David Kau, Chris Forrest, Nik Rabinowitz and Barry Hilton. The MC for the evening will be Darren “Wackhead” Simpson and all proceeds from the show will go to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

“We are delighted that these iconic South African comedians will be back together in a hilarious show in which all monies go to the Nelson Mandela Foundation in a year that celebrates the great man’s centenary and legacy,” said Roddy Quin of Real Concerts, which is organising the show. “Comedy is a platform that unites people and delivers a message on social justice.”
