The Clown Jewels Part 1 @ Theatre on the Bay

The Clown Jewels II – with the financial help from The National Arts Council – promises more of the same wild and hysterical antics seen in the original show…

Alan Committie continues to pay homage to visual and physical comedians from the 20th Century and does so through a series of sketches, monologues and routines. This time you will see more of Peter Sellers and John Cleese as well as a special focus on Sid Cesar, Jim Carrey and a host of others…

There are also brand new comic gems written and conceived specifically for this show.

Fast, Furiously Funny and frenetically frantic the antics of Alan along with the beautiful and equally hysterical Shirley Kirchmann will make sure that you are not only shown some of the tricks of the comedy trade, but that you laugh out loud throughout. This is a masterclass of mirth!

This sequel is even funnier (3.7 times funnier according to an international poll conducted in Ravens Rd, Plumstead extension three!!).

This show was performed at the Theatre on the Bay main stage in August 2002.

” Committie and his sidekick mince, punchline and pratfallthrough some memorable moments…tickling the audience’s funnybones. Committie sends in all your favourite clowns ”

Marina Griebenow, Die Burger
” Skreeusnaaks en Committie verfyn sy tegniek tot hy dit foutloos kan namaak. Hy is ‘n begaafde en energieke komediant ”

Lisa Wolff,,
” Local talent Committie is an electric wire buzzing with hilarity. His amusing banter, creative improvisation and interaction with the audience was admirable…an unmissable show! “
