He may be one of South Africa’s most sought after comedians and a whizz in the kitchen (having gained the title of Celebrity Masterchef SA in 2015) but Chris Forrest’s greatest achievement is his family… In his hilariously honest one-man show, Who’s Your Daddy?, Chris sheds some light on his experiences of becoming a father. His number one golden rule is “Don’t argue with a pregnant woman!” - and that’s coming from experience! From pregnancy to birth, sleepless nights, dirty diapers and everything in between, the show is a clueless dad’s journey to fatherhood. He shares valuable tips about what really happens and how to deal with it. Chris will be taking Who’s Your Daddy? around the country this year. The first leg of the tour takes place on the 29 th April in Klerksdorp, 28 th May in Welkom and followed up by a 3 week run from the 31 st May to 18 th June at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square in Sandton. The show returns to the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and then to Mafikeng on the 6 th August. More shows to be announced shortly. Written by Chris Forrest and directed by Bevan Cullinan, this laugh-a- minute show is a must see for anyone who is a parent, expecting a baby, hoping to become a parent or who knows a parent or just fans of great comedy.
Chris’ unique dry sense of humour, his quick wit and intelligent comedy has made him one of the country’s most popular comedians. Having started out in the 90’s, Chris has worked in almost every facet of comedy. Equally at home MCing an evening or just doing a spot, Chris has performed on every worthwhile comedy club, showcase and festival – locally and abroad. Proudly brought to you by Huggies, expecting moms-to- be might even stand the chance to “Witty, funny, masterpiece” – Cue Magazine “60 hilarious minutes” – Artsmart “What I loved about the show is that Chris was completely honest” – El Broide “Forrest manages to not only have the audiences laughing at him, but also sympathising with him.” – Helen Herimbi, The Star Tonight
