CAPE TOWN COMEDY CLUB
Jou Ma Se Comedy Club is proud to announce its name change to Cape Town Comedy Club.
“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 historic Pumphouse in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.
The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), Babben Larsson (Sweden), Dana Alexander (UK) and the best of the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March Comedy Central will air the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.
After a highly successful first year at the clubs new home at The Pumphouse, 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 which comes into effect on 25th February 2015 also makes it available to a much wider audience.”
Kurt and his team look forward to many more years of making you all laugh at the new……………Cape Town Comedy Club.
