Minnie Mouse Received STAR On #Hollywood #WalkOfFame For Her 90th Anniversary @Disney #DisneyAfrica

Hi Friends,

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honored Disney’s Minnie Mouse today with an official star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Special guest speakers included Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger, and global pop icon and judge of ABC’s “American Idol,” Katy Perry. The star was dedicated to the category of Motion Pictures next to the El Capitan Theatre.

“Minnie Mouse has been a star and a fashion icon since she first burst onto the scene in the ground-breaking animated classic, Steamboat Willie,” said Robert A. Iger, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company. “The star of more than 70 movies during her illustrious career, Minnie has entertained millions of people around the world, touching hearts and bringing joy wherever she goes. We’re thrilled to see her cultural influence and many achievements recognized with her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

A veteran of more than 70 films, Minnie Mouse is one of Hollywood’s most recognized global stars, delighting kids and families for generations. Loved for her infectious, upbeat personality, Minnie’s iconic style has also made her a muse for fashion designers, artists, and fans around the globe. Her classic polka dot look has been constantly reimagined by the fashion industry from her early pill-box flower hat, which influenced ladies’ hat trends, to her famous bow and ears.

“Minnie embodies iconic. Her style is the epitome of fun fashion,” said Katy Perry. “To this day, no one rocks a bow, the color red, or a polka dot quite like her. It is a special skill to bring joy to so many, and she does it with the effortless bat of an eyelash. I am delighted to be part of honoring Minnie and her magic with a star on the Walk of Fame.”

To celebrate Minnie’s milestone anniversary and National Polka Dot Day, a number of fashion collaborations are launching worldwide today, including a new special-edition Coach collection inspired by her iconic style. The 20-piece collection includes handbags, small leather goods, ready-to-wear and specialty items – all infusing signature Coach silhouettes reimagined with vintage-inspired Disney patches and Minnie Mouse’s favorite polka dots. Coach Creative Director, Stuart Vevers also designed a bespoke dress for Minnie, worn at a celebratory lunch immediately following the ceremony at Hollywood’s famed Chateau Marmont.

Additional collections from Disney Store and ShopDisney.com, New Balance, Torrid, Forever 21, New Era, Pandora, Macy’s, and more are now available.

#NespressoOnIce Is The Hottest Way to Keep Cool This Summer #Jozi #CapeTown @Nespresso

Hi Friends,

From January 24 onwards, the Nespresso on Ice Truck is hitting the streets of Joburg and Cape Town to serve up a sip of something special this summer. Following the launch of two Limited Edition coffees that have been specially crafted for iced coffee preparation, the Nespresso on Ice truck will be cooling down the city’s hot spots by delivering delicious iced coffee. What better way to enjoy a moment of perfect refreshment in the height of summer?

Intenso on Ice and Leggero on Ice are the first coffees Nespresso has crafted specifically to be enjoyed as iced coffees. Intenso on Ice is a bold coffee with cereal and cocoa notes and an intense, roasted finish. If prepared as an Intenso on Ice Macchiato, it reveals a smooth and creamy texture with biscuit notes. In contrast, when enjoyed as a black iced coffee, Leggero on Ice offers delicate fruity and lemon notes with lingering aromatics and a full-bodied, smooth texture. If paired with milk to create a Leggero on IceMacchiato, it develops toasted notes and a more milky and sweet flavor.

While the Nespresso on Ice truck is the coolest place to be, it couldn’t be easier to have your Nespressomoment on ice in the comfort of your own home. The Nespresso coffee experts have created a simple, three-step recipe for a perfectly proportioned and delicious iced coffee, with water or milk to create the perfect iced coffee treat. Follow the easy three-step method:

STEP 1 Add 3 extra-large ice cubes to a glass (90g or 7 regular sized ice cubes)
STEP 2 Top with an Espresso serving (40 ml) of Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice
STEP 3 Finish with 90 ml of cold water or cold milk froth (approx. 6 tablespoons) Voila!

Sony Mobile Unveils New Selfie Smartphones: #XperiaXA2 #XperiaXA2Ultra @SonyXperiaZA

Hi Friends,

Sony Mobile Communications unveiled Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra - the latest additions to its popular super mid-range line, with Sony camera technology, elegant designs and powerful performance.

"Our super mid-range product strategy started out as an exciting new idea based on bringing bold technologies to this section of the market in the most accessible way possible," said Hideyuki Furumi, EVP, Global Sales & Marketing, at Sony Mobile Communications. "Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are no different, with leading front camera technology first seen in our flagship XZ line. We’re targeting 2018 as a breakthrough year, and look forward to showcasing further innovations across the entire Xperia portfolio over the coming months.”
Xperia XA2 - capture life’s beauty with sophisticated Sony camera technology in a sleek, borderless design
Xperia XA2 - capture life’s beauty with sophisticated Sony camera technology in a sleek, borderless design
Xperia XA2’s powerful 23MP rear camera packs Sony’s large 1/2.3” Exmor RSTM for mobile image sensor, with ISO 12800 sensitivity for clear low-light photography.

It features 4K movie recording, allowing you to create with colour and clarity – 120fps slow motion video capture is also included for dramatizing action and movement. There’s a 120° super wide-angle 8MP camera up front, so you can fit more of your friends and surroundings into selfies.

The 5.2” Full HD display is brighter, sharper and more colourful – it sits within a beautiful borderless design, taking the screen right to the edge. And it’s built to last with strong and durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass.

Unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor – integrated into the smooth metallic back panel. Xperia XA2 is composed of anodized aluminium on the sides, with a diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom, accentuating the industrial beauty of metal. It represents an evolution of the recognisable Xperia “loop surface” form, with smooth screen curvature and a symmetrical layout for a sleek look and comfortable feel.

The high-capacity 3,300 mAh battery and the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 630 Mobile Platform means you can do more of what you love for longer with smooth and speedy performance. And, even more Sony smart charging technologies; Smart Stamina extend usage during the day, with Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging ensuring the battery stays healthy over time. Quick charging is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

Xperia XA2 will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in four fresh colours: Silver, Black, Blue and Pink.

Engineered specifically for selfies, Xperia XA2 Ultra features 16MP with Optical Image Stabilisation and 8MP 120° super wide-angle dual front cameras, both with front flash, producing clear shots regardless of lighting or environment and for fitting more friends and surroundings into selfies.

With the same 23MP rear camera module as Xperia XA2, the large 1/2.3” Exmor RSTM for mobile sensor is capable of ISO 12800 sensitivity for better low-light photography – and the 4K movie recording and 120fps slow motion video capture features allow you to preserve memories and magnify moments.

It features Sony’s most vibrant 6” Full HD smartphone display yet, with a wide and accurate colour gamut – built with strong and durableCorning® Gorilla® Glass. It sits within a borderless design; hardware so immersive, the screen becomes indistinguishable from the experience.

Just as with Xperia XA2, unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor. The “loop surface” design is also composed of anodized aluminium on the sides, with the same recognisable diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom.

The super-capacity 3,580 mAh battery means you can use the device for longer, and intuitive Sony smart charging technologies regulate and analyse power consumption and charging cycles, so it lasts and stays healthy over time - and the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 630 Mobile Platform ensures performance is seamless and multitasking is made easy. Quick charging is also supported for hours of power in just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

Xperia XA2 Ultra will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in four contemporary colours: Silver, Black, Blue and Gold.
Xperia L2 brings a large display, long-lasting battery and advanced selfie camera

Xperia L2’s expansive 5.5” HD screen is great for enjoying video, browsing and social networks on the go.

The 3,300 mAh battery means you can do more of what you love for longer, and intuitive Xperia smart charging technologies ensure the battery stays healthy during its lifespan.

The 120° super wide-angle 8MP front camera is built for selfies, with its 13MP F2.0 rear camera ensuring clear and crisp mobile photography.

Xperia L2 will launch in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in three colours: Black, Gold and Pink - each rendered with reflective surfaces, emphasizing the “loop surface” design, and unlocking is made easy with a single touch via the rear fingerprint sensor.

All-new fresh and imaginative Xperia accessories
New leather-look Style Cover Stands launch alongside Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra in Black and Silver, to complement each device’s colour style. Matching form with function, both are adjustable to stand independently for video playback, and will automatically pause or sleep the device when closed.

Mono Bluetooth® Headset MBH22 is a new in-ear Bluetooth headset combining subtle design features with a premium finish. With up to six hours talk time, you can use it alongside Google Assistant to control your music and get things done. Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will launch on Android 8.0 OreoTM and Xperia L2 on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

What Your Habits Say About You? @WorldVentures #2018 #WVmomentum

Hi Friends,

Your beliefs dictate your behavior, and your behaviors become your habits. What you do each day is an extension of your values and identity. Are your habits reflecting a life of fun, freedom and fulfilment? Are you edifying those around you? Are you a leader to your peers? Do you consistently exhibit integrity?

With a small amount of effort, you can create habits that will have a great impact on your life and those around you. Here are some tips for creating new habits and making them stick:

1. Make a plan.
Habits start with purposeful planning. What is your plan to succeed today? Maybe you need to start your day earlier to get it all done. Plan to set your alarm clock earlier; which also means you must plan to go to sleep earlier. Before you know it, your planning will become a habit. There’s a saying that rings true here: Failing to plan is planning to fail! Let’s plan to succeed!

2. Do it daily.
The best habit you can start is consistency. We naturally gravitate to what is familiar. Doing something every day will make it familiar, and over time it will become routine. Do it every day and you will reap the rewards of a consistent habit.

3. Do it even when no one is watching.
The definition of integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching. We all love to receive credit for a job well done, but when starting a new habit, the hard work comes when you do it even when you know no one knows. In a world of instant gratification, this is hard to hear, but once your behavior becomes ingrained, others will take notice!
What Your Habits Say About You? @WorldVentures #2018 #WVmomentum
What you do daily has a profound effect on who you become. Once you make small changes to create a lifelong habit, you will see an emergence of a pattern that defines your character. Others will begin to follow you just by watching what you do everyday! Your habits will encourage others to enjoy life, and experience joy around the world with family and friends!
 
Wouldn’t it be great if you could just run on autopilot? What if you could do chores without a thought, create a successful business without losing a wink of sleep, or eat consciously without feeling the ache of depravity? Seems like a dream world, doesn’t it? While life doesn’t always go the way you plan, your habits can certainly trigger fulfilment. WorldVentures™ Representatives embody company’s core values and cultivate habits that breed success, integrity and leadership.

As we start 2018 let’s explore habits that will habits that will help you reach and achieve the goals that you have set for 2018. What do your daily habits say about you? For a WorldVentures Rep, those habits scream fun, freedom, integrity and trust! Start a new habit today, and do it every day for the rest of your life.
 
Cheers!!!

@SamsungSA Unveils Wall-Mountable Lifestyle Soundbar #NW700 #CES2018

Hi Friends, 
 
Samsung Electronics unveiled a new premium lifestyle soundbar at CES 2018, the NW700 Sound+. The wall-mountable NW700 Sound+ soundbar succeeds the award-winning MS650 Sound+ model and incorporates sound-enhancing features, such as distortion-cancelling, wide-range tweeters and multi-speaker control, all technologies developed at the Samsung Audio Lab in Valencia, California.

The NW700 Sound+ soundbar sports a slim and sleek external design optimized for wall mounting underneath Samsung’s super-thin televisions. The 53.5mm-width soundbar, which seamlessly works with a wall mount TV, is 41% narrower than the previous soundbar model, allowing users to achieve harmonious interior design. The monolithic soundbar adopts three channels and slim sound technology to deliver dynamic and targeted sound for an immersive listening experience. The body of the soundbar also has a built-in subwoofer, eliminating the need for an external subwoofer and contributing to a clean, slender design for a home entertainment space.
@SamsungSA Unveils Wall-Mountable Lifestyle Soundbar #NW700 #CES2018
“Samsung continues to invest in product development that fuses lifestyle and technology in a seamless, innovative manner,” said Mike van Lier, Director Consumer Electronics at Samsung South Africa. “With our NW700 Sound+ soundbar, we are not only committed to superior product design, but also to delivering unmatched sound quality to our consumers.”

The technology found in the NW700 Sound+ and its previous iterations has been routinely praised for its role in achieving powerful bass, cohesive soundstage, and impressive clarity. The distortion-cancelling technology has also been recognized for effectively syncing the drivers in the soundbar to produce a clear and powerful sound. The technology works by predicting distortion at the end of the speaker movement and making the necessary adjustments before the distortion takes place. This results in smooth, distortion-free bass tones.

The NW700 Sound+ also supports three sound modes including Standard Mode, Surround Mode, which is used to expand surround sound performance, and Smart Mode, which automatically adjusts volume and surround sound effects.

As one of Samsung’s newest lifestyle products, the NW700 Sound+ soundbar is well-suited to be seamlessly integrated into most home décor and home theatre systems.

Cheers!!!

Your guide to Becoming A Pro-Rider - 8 #Uber Features You Didn't Know @Uber_RSA

Hi Friends, 

Whether you’re new to Uber, or an Uber VIP, there might be a few features that you don’t know about. We’re here to tell and remind you about some of Uber’s key features you may have missed, which will make each ride more reliable and convenient than the last.

Below are the 8 features you might have missed:
 
Multiple destinations - stops when you need them
Whether you’re heading out for a weekend away and want to grab your friend en route to the airport, or going home after dinner and need to drop off the party on the way, it’s easier than ever to pick up and drop off your friends while on a trip. Uber has introduced a feature that makes it easy for you to add multiple stops along your route, which means you no longer have to edit your destinations while on a trip.

To access the feature, choose your adventure, tap the “+” next to the “Where To” destination box to add a stop(s) at any point before or during your trips. You can also add, change or remove the destination from the on the trip screen accessible on the app.

Uber Gift cards - a gift that will never collect dust
Whether it’s a ride across the city or your favorite Uber Eats meal delivered at Uber speed, we’re making it even easier to get what you want, when you want it with Uber Gift cards.

Gift cards are available at Checkers, Shoprite and Pick n Pay stores nationwide and are available in R100 and R200 denominations and are directly redeemable through the app. How much easier could it get?
Your guide to Becoming A Pro-Rider - 8 #Uber Features You Didn't Know @Uber_RSA
In-app support - access to 24/7 support all over the world.
Did you know you can get a prompt response to your queries at the tip of your fingers? You have access to global network of support centres to provide 24/7 support all over the world.

Whether you are having a technical issue, you were charged an incorrect fee or left something in a vehicle, your issue can get resolved in the in-app help section, which can be accessed within your Uber app by tapping the menu icon (three bars) in the top left-hand corner of your app. You can then proceed to navigate and tap on the “help” icon, scroll down and report the issue at hand.

Compliments - Make someone’s day at the tap of a button!

We want to give you the opportunity to thank and recognize your driver for the things they do to make your experience more memorable and fun. When you leave a compliment ㄧ say, for your driver expertly navigating winding city streets, or for simply striking up a great conversation, a notification will show up on the driver’s home screen to let them know.

In-app chat - making connections easier

Every great ride starts with the pickup, which is why we have added a way for you and drivers to chat right in the Uber app.

To chat with your driver en route to collect you, go to the Uber feed and tap “contact” and then “chat.” When your driver receives a chat from you, it will be read aloud to them. Drivers can acknowledge receipt with one tap to their app to send a “thumbs up” to your app.

uberX VIP - we’re making your loyalty count

We believe that our top riders deserve a top Uber experience. This is why we launched uberX VIP, which allows a select few in South Africa to unlock a unique vehicle view!

UberX VIP matches loyal riders with top-rated driver-partners in your city, giving you the chance to enjoy premium service at no extra cost. To qualify as an uberX VIP rider all you need to do is take at least 20 trips a month and maintain a rating of 4.5 or more.

Schedule a ride - plan ahead
Whether you’re catching an early morning flight, going to an appointment, or planning the perfect date, you’ll have one less thing to worry about. Schedule a ride up to 30 days in advance to 15 minutes ahead of time for the most important events in your calendar.

Here is how:
  • Tap the car icon to schedule a ride.
  • Set your pickup date, time, location, destination, ride type, and get a fare estimate.
  • Confirm the details of your upcoming trip and tap Schedule. Edit or cancel anytime before your ride.
  • Enjoy your ride - We’ll send you reminders the day of the trip and notify you when your ride is on the way. We’ll also let you know if pricing changes.
Request a ride for a loved one
We’ve all been there. Those moments when your grandmother needs a ride to the shopping mall while you’re stuck at work. Or, the last minute Friday night request from your friend for a ride home from the airport.

The good news? You can easily request a ride for a loved one directly through the app! When you set the pick-up location a fair distance away from your current location, we’ll automatically ask whether the ride is for a family member or friend. You can then select the rider from your address book, set their destination, and request the ride on their behalf.

Once the driver is on the way, the rider will receive a text message with the driver’s details and a link to track the driver’s route. They’ll even be able to contact the driver directly. The driver will see the rider’s name, and be able to contact the rider directly, too.
 
Cheers!!!

DYNAMO Brings His Magic LIVE TOUR to #SouthAfrica For The First Time #DynamoSA #May2018


Hi Friends,

He’s walked on water across the river Thames, levitated in front of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and walked down the outside of the L.A times building; he’s predicted the Soccer World Cup outcome and taken a trip on the side of a bus. This global television star, international brand ambassador, author and stage performer, the award-winning magician, Dynamo is in South Africa this week to announce and promote his forthcoming first time ever ‘Seeing is Believing’ Live SA Tour. #DynamoSA

The tour begins at the new Sun Arena at Time Square, Menlyn Maine, Pretoria on Friday, 11 May 2018 at 8pm followed by two shows on Saturday, 12 May 2018 at 3pm and 8pm and one show on Sunday, 13 May 2018 at 3pm. The three Cape Town performances on Friday, 18 May 2018 at 8pm and Saturday, 19 May 2018 at 3pm and 8pm take place at the Grand Arena, GrandWest. Tickets are on sale at Computicket.

Dynamo Live is brought to this country by local promoter, Showtime Management by arrangement with Phil McIntyre, CAA and Inner Circle Films, in association with media partners 947 and KFM. “We are excited to welcome Dynamo to South Africa and give his many fans with the opportunity to see his magic skills in what is a spectacular and unique live stage production,” says Showtime’s Tony Feldman.
Dynamo, whose real name is Steven Frayne
Dynamo, whose real name is Steven Frayne, is well-known for his multi award-winning television series “Magician Impossible” that has seen Dynamo visit 10 countries and astonish thousands of people across the continents, including South Africa. In a short-time he quickly established himself as one of the world’s most popular and best loved magicians, with his series airing in over 180 territories worldwide, reaching over 400 million cumulative viewers globally. He’s the first magician in history to headline the world famous O2 in London and he was awarded the highest accolade by the magic circle with his promotion to Member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, a position only held by 300 magicians worldwide, including HRH Prince of Wales.

Dynamo said of his stage venture: “After four series of Magician Impossible I was ready for a new challenge and for a long time I wanted to take my show to the stage. Like I did for magic on TV, the live magic show offers fans an entertainment experience never seen before. I can’t wait to amaze South African audiences with what I have in store for them.”

Over the last six years, Dynamo’s ascent from unknown, working class magician, hailing from the poverty-stricken Delph Hill estate on the outskirts of Bradford, to multi award-winning, global superstar, has been nothing short of miraculous. After the hit television series, ‘Magician Impossible’ Dynamo’s ‘Seeing is Believing’ stage show quickly erupted from a 10-date run into a year-long world tour as Dynamo spread his magic and filled arenas by playing 127 shows with over 600 000 plus tickets sold making it one of the largest scale magic shows in the world. Dynamo “fever” spread resulting in the highly successful Dynamo UK tour that sold out on 400k tickets and the Australia tour sold out on 100k tickets. Not only has he redefined the shape of modern magic for the millennial generation much like Blaine in the late 90’s and David Copperfield in the 1980’s; Dynamo’s approach to large scale illusion (the big stunts are never pre-publicised and use well known landmarks as their backdrop) has allowed him to connect with young people and re-energise the genre in a way not seen for a generation.
DYNAMO Brings His Magic LIVE TOUR to SA For The First Time #DynamoSA
It is this impact that has helped Dynamo transcend the world of magic to become a bona fide pop culture icon, with giants from the worlds of music, film and sport enthralled by his performances. Brad Pitt made a surprise visit to watch Dynamo’s live show with his kids as did fashion icon Kate Moss and artist Damien Hirst. Will Smith called Dynamo’s performance “absolutely astonishing” and Cristiano Ronaldo and Jay-Z have both hired him to perform at private functions.

“I honestly believe people need magic in their lives as it brings a sense of hope and wonder that is often lost in the day to day” he said in a recent interview. “Everyone needs magic in their lives” he added.

Laugh-A-Minute: Kings & Queens of Comedy Announces biggest line-up Yet @BluBloodSA #11Feb2018

Hi Friends, 

One of South Africa’s longest running flagship comedy brands, Kings & Queens of Comedy, is bringing its biggest line-up in six years. Bringing world-class comedy to Pretoria, this comedy extravaganza sees comic giants from around South Africa entertaining audiences at the Sun Arena Time Square, Menlyn (the first comedic event at the venue) on Saturday, February 10th, 2018.

Shining their comical armour and sharpening their witty swords, the stellar line-up includes Riaad Moosa (MC), Alan Committie, Casper de Vries, Donovan Goliath, Gilli Apter, Hannes Brummer, Jason Goliath, Joey Rasdien, Khanyisa Bunu, Krijay Govender, Leeanda Reddy, Marc Lottering, Melt Sieberhagen, Shimmy Isaacs and Sifiso Nene, with a guest appearance by Morgan Beatbox.

“We pride ourselves on bringing world-class South African comedians to stages around the country. You are getting a massive line-up of headliner comedians from start to finish. We’ve picked the cream of the crop and we’re excited to bring an even bigger and better Kings & Queens of Comedy for the first time to the Sun Arena in 2018,” comments Osman Osman, MD of Blu Blood.
Laugh-A-Minute: Kings & Queens of Comedy Announces biggest line-up Yet @BluBloodSA #11Feb2018
Introducing the stars…
Riaad Moosa
returns to centre stage as the host of this royal affair. He certainly seems to have the remedy for the nation’s ills – a healthy dose of laughter, straight up – hold the aspirin – as he gives the audience a snapshot into his life, a father of three kids, husband, comedian, actor and with all the current cultural and political issues thrown in.

No end to his talents, Alan Committie, is one of South Africa’s leading award-winning stand-up comic performers. He has travelled all over the globe sharing his hilarious brand of madness.

Casper de Vries has been at the forefront of the Afrikaans comedy scene for over 30 years and has developed a strong following with his witty, razor sharp humour and hilarious observations on everyday life.

Bringing a lot of character and energy to the stage, Donovan Goliath’s lively manner of storytelling has made him a prolific stand-up act who is set to get the laughs rolling in.

Gilli Apter (pronounced with a hard G), has worked as a comedy writer since 2005. She has entertained audiences around the country with her unique style.

Hannes Brummer’s comedic style is highly energetic and physical as he goes on about his Afrikaans heritage, the battle of the sexes and becoming a dad.

Jason Goliath is larger than life (it’s all because his big personality won’t fit into a smaller body). His infectious energy and laugh has made him one of South Africa’s most sought after comedians.

Joey Rasdien doesn’t need much of an introduction. Instantly recognisable, his endearing stage person is intellectually absurd, physically hysterical and thought provoking.

Teacher-turned-comedienne, Khanyisa Bunu is a fan favourite. She was the first woman to win the audience choice award at the Comics’ Choice Awards and has also made her mark on South African TV with roles in various series.

The beautiful Krijay Govender is a South African actress, director and comedienne. She is a rare mix of brains, beauty and a comic genius on stage.

Leeanda Reddy is not only beautiful but she has a bevy of talents. A familiar face on South African stages and screens, she has proved time and time again that she has a flair for comedy with her outrageously funny skits.

There’s no missing that trademark ‘fro’… Hailing from Cape Town, Marc Lottering is one of South Africa’s top comedians and has been in the comedy industry for almost 20 years. Marc is the consummate storyteller and continues to keep audiences in stitches across the country and abroad.

Melt Sieberhagen has a uniquely South African point of view and an inherent inability to sidestep touchy topics and ‘holy cows’. Having been described as anything from ‘a slightly angry teddy” to a “really funny Dutchman”, he’s just a normal bloke looking at the funny side of living in a dysfunctional society.

The hilarious award-winning Shimmy Isaacs looks at her journey as a confused coloured woman who comes into contact with all sorts of cultural dilemmas of her own race and others.

Off stage, Sifiso Nene is a man of few words, On stage, however, telling jokes is the only place he feels completely at home. His passion and determination, sprinkled with talent has seen him winning awards and winning the hearts of comedy fans around the country.

Always adding a spin to the Kings & Queens of Comedy events, international celebrity beatboxer, Morgan Beatbox, makes a guest appearance.

Don’t miss the Kings & Queens of Comedy, 10 February, 2018 at the Sun Arena Time Square, Menlyn, Pretoria. Tickets from R200 and are available through Computicket online and the various retail outlets. The show starts at 20h00 and is rated PG16.
Another hilarious production brought to you by Blu Blood in association with Comedy Central Africa. Follow Blu Blood (@BluBloodSA) or visit www.blublood.com for more information.

About Kings & Queens of Comedy
Going on six years of Kings & Queens of Comedy, the show started in 2012 in Johannesburg and has since grown to be one of the leading comedy brands in South Africa, promoting and showcasing local talent from around the country.
