South African comedians, Bafunny Bafunny, bring their show to London’s Royal Albert Hall this Thursday 20th of May.

After their London performance, the Bafunny Bafunny comedy team will tour South Africa with their special brand of laughs in the lead-up to the World Cup.

The stand-up show will keep the sport parody alive throughout the tour “fixtures” with each show, or rather “match”, starring the Best in SA Stand-up comedians as “players”, complete with a “coach”, a “captain” and big screens with commentators that will keep the “fans” entertained during “half time”.

When asked to comment on the recent Icelandic volcano activity, this is what some of the funny men had to say:

Mark Banks:
“I knew there was gonna be trouble when I got volcanic ash in my soup at a top Sandton restaurant… the waiter told me it was a no-fly zone.”

Nik Rabinowitz:
“ Eish”

John Vlismas: “Due to the vigorous burning of documents at the Selebi house and heavy production of hot air by Julius Malema, we felt it best to get out of Dodge before we overdosed on material prior to the big show.”

Marc Lottering: “I’m ashes.”
After kicking off with this momentous “away game”, the team returns to South Africa to complete their national tour in May and June 2010.

Bafunny Bafunny are calling on all Saffas to stand up and celebrate SA Stand Up! (Strictly no Vuvuzelas)
