Loving the new home of the Cape Town Comedy Club (formerly known as Jou Ma se Comedy Club)

by Karisa

On Saturday evening I decided to try out the (relatively) new Cape Town Comedy Club in the V&A Waterfront.

It’s of course not a completely new thing… Cape Town Comedy Club was previously known as Jou Ma Se Comedy Club, which used to have a home over at the River Club.  I attended two of three of their comedy evenings over there, but hadn’t yet had the chance to check out their new setup.

With my folks in town for a few days, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to give it a bash…

The verdict?  Very very cool indeed.  I love the new space.  It’s got a great vibe and being right in the middle of a hot tourist spot, I’m sure they get a whole lot of international foot traffic as well (something which I’m guessing didn’t really happen at their old venue).

Apologies about the blurry shot – last quick attempt before my phone died…

You can get there early and enjoy a few drinks or even some dinner.  Have a look at their restaurant & bar menu over here.  And then you’re in for a solid comedy lineup with each evening features a host, a headline act, a supporting act, an open mic act and sometimes even a guest act (we for example had a comedian all the way from Wales).

Things you need to know:

  • They are open every Wed – Sun
  • Doors open at 6pm & the show starts at 8:30pm
  • Tickets are R95 on Wed/Thu, R120 on Fri/Sat, with a half price special on Sundays
  • Tickets can be booked via their website or by calling them on 021 418 8880 / 079 495 3989
  • The lineup changes all the time, so do have a look at their schedule over here
  • They are located at The Pumphouse at the V&A Waterfront (Near the aquarium & Watershed market)

If you’ve been in need of some good laughter therapy, look no further.
