HILARIOUS STAND-UP SHOW HITS THEATRE OF MARCELLUS, EMPERORS PALACE, JOBURG, 22-23 JULY
Versatile American comedian and film and television actor Orlando Jones, just can’t seem to get enough of South Africa! Four years after his last stand-up tour, he returns this July to perform in his hilarious one-man comedy show, Comedy Central presents Stand Up and Laugh with Orlando Jones (22 & 23 July 2016, Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace, Johannesburg).
Comedy Central presents Stand Up and Laugh with Orlando Jones is brought to you by Blu Blood in association with Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) and Kaya FM.
Jones recently visited South Africa to participate in filming “Madiba”, a six-part US miniseries based on the life and times of Nelson Mandela, in which he stars as Oliver Tambo. “It was one of the greatest experiences of my life,” reveals Jones. The miniseries, which also stars Laurence Fishburne as Mandela, will air in 2017.
During his trip, Jones was also a guest judge, alongside “sushi King” Kenny Kunene, at the first Comedy Central Roast Battle, shot at Parker’s Comedy & Jive in May, which saw some of the best local comedians sparring in a hilarious show-down. Jones was so impressed with the standard of the local SA comedians he saw at the battle, that he invited local comedians Dillan Oliphant and Simmi Areff to join him on stage.
