This Friday, you can catch his debut one-man show “The Phil Spectrum” at the popular Baxter Theatre Centre in Cape Town. From stand-up comedy to live radio sketches and ukulele songs, Phil de Lange does it all. The tickets for this event cost R120 per person and the show starts at 7 30 pm.

One of my favorite events in South Africa’s Cape Town this weekend is definitely the two-hour long Nirvana Cruise. Hop aboard the 55-foot luxury power catamaran, Tigger 2 Royale and enjoy magnificent views of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, and Signal Hill. DJ Brown is in charge of the music and the boat is scheduled to make a midway stop. One ticket for this fabulous cruise will set you back R550 and includes a buffet of sushi and oysters, as well as juice or 2 flutes of sparkling wine.

Venue: Tigger 2 Royale, Pierhead, T-jetty V&A Waterfront, Cape Town

It seems there is no shortage of comedy shows in Cape Town this weekend. One of the most popular comedians in the region, Kagiso Mokgadi, or KG is performing at the Gold Arrow Studio in Baxter Theatre this Saturday.  Like many comedians, KG started out as an open-mic comedian but quickly became active in both theatre and corporate comedy.
