The Comic’s Choice Awards Is Upon Us

Tickets are almost sold out for The 3rd Annual Comic’s Choice Awards™ (CCA), which takes place next Saturday night. Check out the details here…

The date has been set and the performers are ready but there’s secrecy in the air as the creative team remains tight-lipped about what audiences can expect, other than to say that they are pulling out all the stops to deliver another dynamite production.  Taking the format of a hilarious variety show at which six awards are handed out, winners are required to perform seven minutes of stand-up in lieu of an acceptance speech, so those lucky enough to have purchased the few tickets available to the public are in for a treat!

With fantastic collaborations and a few wildly unlikely appearances, SA’s top comics, budding newcomers, celebs, VIPs and comedy fans will celebrate excellence in comedy on this very special night.

This year’s theme, “The Art Of Funny” centers on self-expression and social justice and blends technology, the growing power of social media and urban street art to reshape reality and drive revolution.
