NANDO’S PRESENTS MASS HYSTERIA PROVES
DEMOCRACY IS A JOKE
Democracy is a joke. A really funny one too. Just ask the thousands of Joburgers who left The Teatro at Montecasino with sore sides after laughing hysterically at this year’s Nando’s presents MASS HYSTERIA Comedy Cabinet.
Your vote meant some of South Africa’s funniest and cheekiest comedians, um sorry, ministers, took to the stage to deliver their perfectly ridiculous manifestos, perfectly.
The seriously unserious portfolios included Alan Committiee’s Ministry of Headucation and Literasy (he insisted we spell it like that); Nik Rabinowitz as Minister of Mental Health, Sunday Lunch and Personal Hygiene (in that order); Chester Missing as Minister of Non-Human Settlements (because he’s not actually human); Joey Rasdien, our Minister of Haircare, Skincare and Apnoea (unless you don’t have hair, then he can’t help you); Mpho Popps as Minister of Single Fathers and Roads (he’s been a busy man); and John Vlismas as the Public Attacker (he attacked everyone, including an unfortunate lady in the front row).
The show’s content was, naturally, politically (in)correct, demographically (in)appropriate, factually (in)accurate and logically (un)sound. Everything you would expect from government.
Nothing and no-one was safe: rhinos, Helen Zille, smartphones, textbooks, puppets, Thuli Madonsela, single fathers, single mothers, JZ, e-tolls, haircare and that unfortunate lady in the front row.
Nando’s, as the Independent Electoral Chicken, ensured free and funny comedy was delivered to all constituents. After all, if we can’t laugh at ourselves, we should laugh at our politicians.
Nando’s presents MASS HYSTERIA is not for the faint of heart or slow of wit.

Initially founded to manage the work of John Vlismas, this company has grown from a spare bedroom into three separate divisions: Wh:Agency – a leading booking agency, Wh:Exclusive a talent Management Company and most recently, Wh:Special Project – a prolific producer of premium live comedy events.
From the legendary “Comedy Underground” club sessions, to Comedy Central Television Specials, stand-up arena tours and international acts such as Henry Rollins, Whacked is positioned as a substantial contributor to the South African comedy landscape, with an aggressive growth in volume over the last 24 months, and no sign of it slowing.
