The Award Winning Podcast

The Award Winning Podcast’ brings an all new experience to the SA comedy landscape.

South Africa’s top comedians make this country’s crowds laugh daily with their insightful political, social and surreal thoughts.

And now, Warren Robertson takes some of SA’s most brilliant comedians on a unique journey with The Award Winning Podcasta live stand-up comedy and improvised chat show experience taking place at the Rim & Rubber in Greenside, Johannesburg during March and April.

This is stand-up comedy on a different scale.  It is a comedy experience unlike any other in the country and I’m excited to see the audiences’ – and the comedians’ – reactions,” says Warren Robertson.

Recorded live, the concept of the show sees Warren interviewing the comedians with questions they have never heard, play games they’ve never played and generally forcing them out of their comfort zones for 30 minutes of sometimes hilarious, sometimes revealing – but always entertaining – listening.

The live show will also feature 15 minutes of stand-up comedy by each guest as well as Warren’s unique take on the past week’s news and events.

The shows will run on Thursdays from the 16th March to the 20th April with the last show of the season taking place on Wednesday, 26th April.  Tickets on sale for R65 at or R75 at the door.  Rim & Rubber is located at 26 Gleneagles Road, Greenside.  Show starts at 20h00.

What the media has to say about Warren:

The best comedian in Johannesburg!” – OfLocal, 2016

Warren Robertson was a complete contrast, with a far faster delivery.  His jokes were intelligent, sometimes weird.  He was constantly pacing, and twisting his observations further into more hilarious off-the-wall territory.” – Daily Maverick, 2014

Now here is a funny man!” –, 2013

Stomach-achingly funny.” – Cue, 2012

Highly original, thinking comedy that is packed with hilarious punchlines.” – PE Herald, 2012

Keeps getting funnier.” – Sunday Independent, 2012
