Alan Committie returns with his brand new, hilarious, stand-up show Planet Mirth– A Funny Look At Everything…in HD! Comedy on a global scale at Theatre on the Bay!

It’s the festive season, which means it’s time for Cape Town funnyman Alan Committie to bring us another hilarious look at the world around us….

In this, his 20th one man comedy show, Committie presents a docu-comedy in the highest definition and promises everything we have come to love about his brand of comic madness…. Infectious energy, physical hi-jinx combined with witty wordplay and hysterical observations.

Planet Mirth is a comic look at….well, everything. Our planet has never been in a more precarious state and that makes it ripe for Committie to unpack how we got here, where we are and how the heck we are ever going to move forward.

Using stand up, characters and sketches, Committie will attempt to hysterically unpack history, geography, science and even sport but mostly it will make you look at the world around you and laugh till you cry. And then we will collect those tears and you can use them to water your parched gardens!! It’s a pleasure.

Car hire, hiking, sign language, family gatherings, gallons of garnish and astrology are just some of the topics he may talk about. Part time security guard Johan van der Walt and de-motivational speaker Trevor Tahor may also make appearances.

Directed by fleur Du Cap Lifetime achievement winner Christopher Weare. This is Alan Committie and Christopher Weare’s 19th production in partnership with each other.
