The longest running Comedy Festival in South Africa is back with another star-studded line-up to rock the Mother City! The 16th Annual Cape Town Comedy hosted at the Artscape Theatre from the 3rd to the 9th of September 2012 will feature seven of the best straight-up stand-up comedians all on one stage. International acts like Orlando Jones, Louis Katz, Brian Haner, Lil Rel and Loni Love will be joined on stage by local funny man David Kau.
Best known as Guitar Guy from The Jeff Dunham Show, Brian Haner is that perfect combination of skilled guitar player and stand-up comedian. Brian was part of the largest comedy tour in the world while on the road with Jeff, seen live by over 2 million people. He was also part of the Jeff Dunham Christmas Special, the highest rated show in the history of Comedy Central, seen by 20 million people. While many guitar comics simply play chords while they do their comedy act, Brian is a whole different kind of musician. Brian spent twenty-five years as a guitarist, recording and touring with musicians ranging from Avenged Sevenfold to Frank Zappa. For the last four years he has opened for The Jeff Dunham Tour on more than 500 shows, in just about every city in America, as well as South Africa, Australia, and a tour across Europe. Brian is now headlining clubs across the country in his own rock ‘n’ roll comedy show. With over 5 million views on his YouTube page, Brian has created a rabid fanbase for his live shows.
