Cape Town’s premier stand-up comedy club is once again in Grahamstown for the duration of the National Arts Festival, bringing festival goers ten late night comedy shows!

Each night, Cape Town Comedy Club, previously known as Jou Ma Se Comedy Club Presents, will showcase some of the country’s most seasoned comedians alongside the freshest and funniest up-and-coming acts.

Regarding the name change: “This is quintessentially a coming of age story” says founder and co-owner, comedian Kurt Schoonraad. The brand was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular, reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace. Word soon spread, and Jou Ma Se Comedy Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home to some of the country’s greatest talent. The club then moved to The River Club in Observatory in 2010 until October 2013. In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront. After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home, the management team has decided to rename the club to “Cape Town Comedy Club”. Kurt explains “On reflection the name change seems like a natural thing to do, it feels like the brand is all grown up now and the new name reflects that. The name change also makes it available to a much wider audience.” Cape Town Comedy Club Presents is honoured to be once again bringing its laughter and entertainment to Grahamstown, running every night until the 11th of July 2015, 11pm at The Bowling Club. Tickets are R80, R60 for students and R50 for block bookings of 10 or more.
