A Belly Full of Laughs at Bay Harbour Market

Written by

Add a belly full of laughs and good food to your monthly calendar as the first Wednesday of every month is officially Comedy Supper Club night at Bay Harbour. After their sell-out evening in early August to an audience of over 400 people, the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay is the best location for laughter and a great night out.

The next Bay Harbour Comedy Supper Club is scheduled for Wednesday, 5th September 2012 and the line-up features Martin Davis (UK) hosting support acts Carl Weber and Anne Hirsch and the headliner will be one of Cape Town's best established comedians – Stuart Taylor.

Hecklers beware - Martin Davis skids and bounces across the stage firing off a relentless rapid-fire assault that hits every corner of the room and kills 100% of all known hecklers in their tracks. Headliner Stuart Taylor is pure class and is probably best known as the presenter of SABC 3's hit travel show, 'Going Nowhere Slowly'; Anne Hirsch won SABC's 'So you think you're funny' Season 2 crowning her the funniest new stand-up comedian in the country, and Carl Weber is our Bloemfontein-born comedian and was the Graça Comedy Showdown winner and also performed at the Nandos International Cape Town Comedy Festival at the Artscape 2012.

Whilst enjoying the show, enjoy a belly full of good food as all the usual food traders will be open from 6pm for show-goers to enjoy a mouth-watering supper prior to and during the show, including the Boom Bar, which will be serving a full spectrum of wine, spirits and the largest selection of draught beer in Cape Town. And, of course, don't forget the huge fireplace, which is one of the signatures of Bay Harbour, which will be roaring.

Doors open at 6pm, show starts at 7.30pm – Tickets cost R80 standing, R90 back seated and R100 front seated, on a seat-reserved basis. Tickets are available online from www.bayharbour.com/quicket.aspx and from the Boom Bar at Bay Harbour Market.

The Bay Harbour Comedy Supper Club is the newest addition to the very popular Bay Harbour Market, which trades on Friday night for Friday Nite LIVE! From 5.00 pm to 9 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 9.30 am to 4 pm.

In line with their vision of supporting the local community, say hello to  Viola, Queen of the Bay, at the door, who will be there helping collect funds as she has been doing on behalf of C.A.R.E.S. for the past several months.
