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.

Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, you’re in for the political shock of your life – but we guarantee it’s going to be the most fun you can have with politics. 

 

Get your tickets now for your dose of politics gone wrong, in the best way.
