Cape Town’s first dedicated comedy venue, featuring South Africa’s most popular comedians as well as international comedians and fresh talent.  Also a dinner venue, with patrons sharing tables.

History: In the 90’s, The Pumphouse was a very popular live music venue hosting local bands. Interactive drumming sessions were also run at this venue in conjunction with the internationally renowned Drum Café. In 1990, David Kramer’s highly successful Dock Road Theatre hosted plays and musical productions to capacity houses until it closed its doors in 1995. Now, The Pumphouse is home to Cape Town Comedy Club, the brain-child of comedian Kurt Schoonraad.

People: Regular performers at the Cape Town Comedy Club include Stuart Taylor, Riaad Moosa, Nik Rabinowitz, Martin Evans, Tracy Klass, Mel Jones,  Dalin Oliver, Martin Davis, Westley Cockrell, Marc Lottering, Conrad Koch / Chester Missing, Carl Weber, Rob van Vuuren and the cream of South African comedy.  International comedians also headline on a regular basis.

  1. Hubby has been wanting to go to the comedy club. Winning these tickets would be a fab anniversary gift to him. 🙂

  2. This is so needed. Just need a bit of a pick me up and would love to go and experience this with my friends. Pick me, me me me me please.

  3. Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing is the one thing needed the most, lifts your spirits and hurts your tummy muscels. And I am so ready to laugh 🙂
