Jesters in the Park
Maynardville Open-Air Festival
“A Jester; a person who is given to witticisms, jokes, and pranks, especially at a medieval court. A jester is sometimes also called ‘the fool’.”
A few hundred years since Shakespeare and so much has changed, yet also so little…
Cape Town Comedy Club is proud to present Jesters in the Park at the Maynardville Open-Air Festival to be held at the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre in Wynberg, from Wednesday 31 January to Saturday 3 February 2018.
Hosted by Rob van Vuuren, who is no stranger to this stage as a Shakespearean actor, and produced by Cape Town Comedy Club, Cape Town’s only dedicated comedy club, Jesters in the Park showcase five of SA’s top comedians as they ‘hold court’ and ‘fool around’ to tackle the social commentary of the day. From politics and road rage to yoga and water restrictions – the Bard would have plenty of new material from these guys – and they even manage to keep it family friendly. Just like in Shakespeare’s comedies, we’ll have some happy endings too. The line-up includes Daniel Richards, Dylan Skews, Phil de Lange and Kurt Schoonraad.
