YES, REALLY ANGEL Comes to Johannesburg, Nov 7-9
Stand up comedienne, Angel Campey's first one woman show, YES, REALLY ANGEL, directed by comedy legend, Nik Rabinowitz, is headed to Johannesburg for three nights only, from 7 to 9 November 2013. From a sold out preview night in Cape Town, the show received rave reviews at its debut run at the recent National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.
YES, REALLY ANGEL is the intelligent and hilarious look into the mind of one of the few female comedians in South Africa.
Relatively new on the South African comedy scene, Angel has risen to success with appearances on some of South Africa's best known stages and festivals including multiple performances with Comedy Central's Kings and Queens of Comedy, a supporting act at Parker's after making the finals in the Nando's comedy showdown; opening the Vodacom Funny Festival 2012, a hugely popular performance at the prestigious Tedx Cape Town and uncompromised success performing in front of her own bathroom mirror.
Nik Rabinowitz saw Angel perform at a charity event that they were both booked on in 2012 and saw her potential. A couple of months later he offered to don a directorial hat (his first time) to direct YES REALLY ANGEL, which is produced by South African race comedy star, Siv Ngesi, star of bestselling shows RACE CARD and DEKAF.
Angel was born in Durban and raised in Plettenberg Bay, Johannesburg and Somerset West. She spent a year in New York City after school, studied Film and Media at the University of Cape Town and then spent 2 years backpacking Asia and teaching English in Korea before returning home to take the comedy mic and regale audiences with her musings and life stories - growing up with the real name of 'Angel' has left her with plenty of fodder.
Angel's comedy covers a diverse spectrum from the views of a young, white South African: everything from racist grannies to zombie apocalypses, guardian angels and Korean children. She believes in pushing people to think about topics with which they might otherwise not feel comfortable through laughter.
No one is safe, and all age groups (over 18) will be entertained. YES REALLY ANGEL is at the Pop Art Theatre on 286 Fox Street, Maboneng Precinct; from 7 to 9 November at 8pm. Tickets cost R80 via www.popartcentre.co.za or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, follow Angel on Twitter (@YesReallyAngel) or like her Facebook page.
