COMEDY CENTRAL SAYS “AYE AYE” TO OH SHIP 2016
This year’s Oh Ship cruise is looking ship-shape and better than ever as Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) joins the fleet as official comedy partner, adding a ship-load of non-stop laughter and sizzling stand-up to a weekend of non-stop music and entertainment.
Weighing anchor between the 2-5 December, Oh Ship 2016 will feature two hilarious Comedy Central stand-up comedy gigs, taking place in the San Carlo Theatre on the MSC Sinfonia
This year’s cruise sets sail with a buzzing comedy experience not to be missed, with Tats Nkonzo, Lihle Lindzy, Mojak Lehoko and Richlieu Beaunoir reporting for duty. Tats Nkonzo, aka “Mr Fantastic” leads our crew of unruly comedy misfits; he’ll be slaying the audience armed only with his arsenal of humour, intellect and a guitar.

Both comedy gigs kick off with a mini “Roast Battle”, where the comics will sling jokes, insults and original one-liners at each other in homage to Comedy Central’s fun new TV series of the same name (premiering January 2017). Comedy Central cameras will also be on hand to capture all the fun for airing on your favourite 24 hour comedy channel
We’ll be bringing music with your crew Captains on board: DJ Fresh and Euphonik and yes, it doesn’t end there. This year we promise to have the best on board by turning up the fire with the musical magician TiMO O.D.V, hip-hop party starter DJ Capital, and the triple threat actress, presenter and 5 FM’s queen Thando Thabethe – to name but a few.

ABOUT STER-KINEKOR THEATRES
Ster-Kinekor Theatres is a wholly-owned business within the Primedia Group and is the largest movie exhibitor on the African continent. To most South Africans, the word ‘movies’ is synonymous with the name ‘Ster-Kinekor’. The company operates 58 commercial cinema complexes in South Africa, with six international sites based in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The cinema chain’s sites house more than 470 large-scale screens, over 63 000 seats and the largest 3D footprint featuring more than 140 state-of-the-art 3D screens across the country.
As the industry leader, Ster-Kinekor has pioneered cinema concepts such as Cinema Nouveau, one of the world’s largest dedicated art-house multiplex circuits, and the luxurious Cine Prestige theatres, the first ‘business class’ cinema experience in South Africa. It boasts the only cinema on the continent that is fitted with the advanced Dolby Atmos sound system (at Gateway in Durban); and has headed the return of The IMAX® Experience, with the opening of seven IMAX® Theatres across the country.
As one of South Africa’s most loved brands, it is Ster-Kinekor’s ongoing mission to become synonymous with the unrivalled magic of the cinema experience, by providing ‘Great Moments at Their Greatest’. During 2013, the company embarked on a massive roll-out project to convert and equip every cinema with the very latest in digital projection and sound technology. The result of this upgrade is that every cinema now boasts state-of-the-art cinema technology that encompasses 2K and 4K digital projection and 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound systems.
The award-winning SK App, which is downloadable on all smart phone operating systems, is interactive, user-friendly and feature-rich, and recently recorded over 2-million, downloads. The SK Club loyalty programme rewards members with redeemable points when they swipe their card when buying movie tickets or catering. Combined with industry leading loyalty programmes from Edcon and Discovery Vitality, these give Ster-Kinekor a strong consumer value proposition and competitive advantage.
As the market leader, Ster-Kinekor aims to spearhead the advancement of cinema across both South Africa and the rest of Africa, to ensure that consumers continue to experience movies as they were made to be seen – on the big screen.
