Soli Philander the award-winning actor, television presenter, director, comedian, playwright, columnist and motivational speaker will be honoured at this years’ Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards as the Lifetime Achievement Recipient. With that comes the pleasure and pain of being at the centre of the “Grilling of a Lifetime”
Now an integral part of the Savanna Comics’ Choice Award’s calendar, the “Grilling of a Lifetime”, is bestowed upon our Lifetime Achievement award recipient and unfolds in the most quintessential way, according to the comedy fraternity. A carefully selected panel of comedy luminaries grill the aforementioned legend in front of a live audience. Soli Philander has had a hand in picking his panel.

The Grilling will get fired up at Parkers Comedy Club, Montecasino on Wednesday the 21st of August. Doors open at 18:00 and proceedings commence at 20:00.
