THE STAR-STUDDED UPCOMING ACTS
FOR OUR SHOW ON NOVEMBER 4TH 2016
JOE BORR AS JASPELL CROMWELL JONES
The award-winning comedian and warm-up for The Graham Norton Show and Mock The Week plays a hapless
climber who retells the story of a treacherous climb.
“Hugely talented character comic, very funny and memorably charismatic” The Scotsman.
For 12 years Mark Palmer built up a reputation as one of South Africa’s most in demand comedians for three main reasons,
being “Clean, classy and clever” (Cape Argus). Before moving to the UK in 2012, Mark was known as the only 100% “clean”
stand-up comic in SA. This landed him work with such notable companies as the Protea Hotel Group, Ford, iTouchSA and many more.
Year after year, Mark took a different solo show to Grahamstown National Arts Festival (their version of Edinburgh) with critical acclaim.
With a comedic voice heavily influenced by the likes of Bill Cosby and Jerry Seinfeld, Mark’s ability to blend a theme
or topic with one of today’s funniest comedy routines is unparalleled. His smart, sometimes loud and often opinionated
brand of comedy has made him an audience favourite wherever he performs.
Mark Palmer is one of a rare breed of comedians: he can make you laugh without having to pepper his routine with
expletives or venture too far below the belt. He’s great at slice-of-life comedy, and deftly gives a wide range of subjects
a sharp nudge in the ribs…The Cape Times

ADDY VAN DER BORGH
Addy makes audiences laugh from the moment he steps on stage. It may be helped by the comically large nose, mad eyes and manic expression, but it is principally that Addy Borgh is a very funny man and great stand-up comedian. As someone who spent his student life studying clowning (oh yes) at LAMDA, Addy Borgh is a physical comedian - in every aspect of the words. Combining brilliant comic timing with a diverse and dysfunctional set of voices and characters, stand-up Addy Borgh brings to life those worlds of the nerd - computers, museums and libraries.
His mix of mimicry, observations and slapstick comedy have won him outings on TV’s The Stand-up Show and Live at Jongleurs and three sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival. Described as an “unassuming comic genius” by those on the prestigious comedy circuit, he is a regular fixture at comedy festivals across the globe and has a growing army of fans not just in Britain (The Comedy Club, Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Comedy Cafe etc) but also in Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand.
A star of BBC 3’s Brain Candy and Sky‘s TV Meltdown (with Kirsty Gallagher), Addy Van Der Borgh appeared at the Edinburgh stand-up comedy festival in 1998 as part of the Screaming Blue Murder comedy showcase, and in 2000 with his own sell-out show 21st Century Fool. He returned in 2002 with Hearing Voices. He also played the lead in his first film, Little Things, for Pandelic.
