Beware the Normans!!

Last week Friday night,  Jason and I decided to get cultured and go to the theatre.  We saw The Rise of the Insanity League and I cannot recommend it more.  Staring Aaron McIlroy, Ben Voss and John Van De Ruit, the show is a hilarious collection of comedic sketches that detail the workings and members of the Insanity League.  Here is the write up from Computicket:

“A comedy movement, comprising comic actors Aaron McIlroy, Ben Voss and - in a welcome return to the stage after an absence of a decade - John van de Ruit. The trio have teamed up to deliver a sketch comedy show which pokes, provokes and tickles in all the right places on a nationwide tour.

The Insanity League was conceived early in 2012 after too much caffeine and not enough fresh air. An inspired conversation led to the frantic scribbling-down of comedy sketch ideas and a plan for nationwide domination was hatched. Now, in 2013, The Insanity League will bring their more than slightly left-field ideas to theatres. The show promises to be more than just a random selection of sketches - the team is preparing a comic study on insanity unlike anything ever seen on the stage in South Africa before. An inspired set is taking shape around their manic ramblings, with Director Greig Coetzee carefully crafting the trio`s comic performances.”

For me the highlights were Brian’s Brain, the Under the Sea skit and the skit with the SAPS.  If you can, go and see it.  You’ll leave with your jaw and stomach muscles sore from laughter and who couldn’t do with more laughter in their life?  Tickets are available from Computicket for R160 a person.
