On Friday evening I attended the media night of Alan Committie‘s 2nd run of The Sound Of Laughter which is currently showing at Theatre on the Bay.
It had been a very very loooooong and painful week… (I’m sure you guys noticed from the lack of posts) And I was in desperate need of some laughter therapy…
Luckily for me, Alan came to my rescue by deciding to do another run of this show which debuted in December of last year (and from what I hear was a sold out success).
The Sound of Laughter returns for another 17 performances, running until the 3rd of October.
But what is the show about?
As a 40-year-old comedian with slightly greying hair, Alan is trying to be a little more serious about his comedy. Which essentially means new material but the same suit …
Covering (amongst a lot of other things) …
- Selfies to Mordor-onic Elfies
- Banting whilst bunting
- The weighty issues of gym and health
- The final say on the Pistorius trial
- Economy class bread rolls
- A powerful if ineffective examination of War Horse and why it cannot solve the Middle East Crisis
- And a special appearance by Johan van der Walt on behalf of Eskom….
Alan then finishes off the show on a high with an aerial silk act that will quite literally bring tears to your eyes… (I’m going to let you guess what type of tears they will be though)It is a fantastic show & I highly recommend that you check it out. Laughter really is the best medicine, and we can all do with a bit of the feel good stuff, can’t we?
