Props to Comedy at the Market for making an unforgettable night of their first event at Bluebird Garage Market in Muizenberg on Saturday. The venue was cosy, the wine was flowing, the sound was good, and most importantly, all the acts were actually funny!

Dalin Oliver played host for the evening. With the exception of one pissed off old guy (who was probably just moeilik because his back was sore from sitting upright at the market since it was built) Dalin’s laid back chats with the audience warmed everyone up and made them comfortable.  Yaaseen Barnes told a series of explosively funny muslim jokes, which would have been really racist if anyone else had told them. Open mic act Lindy Johnson,  held her own between the more experienced guys, with her  saucy single girl jokes.

The headline act for the evening was Rob van Vuuren  and by the time he left the stage I was crying (from laughing, not from the copious amounts of gin available at the very well stocked bar). His animated storytelling style and fresh way of looking at the seemingly mundane world around him, delighted the entire audience.  About a third of  his jokes were about poo…Yes, you read that right the first time. Normally these kinds of jokes only appeal to six year-olds (and to me because I’m immature), but you know what? For some cosmic reason (I like to think it’s talent) when Rob van Vuuren told them they were awesome! Even the old guy, who had been ripped off by all of the comedians by this time, loved them.
