Local Comedian and MC Mel Jones Casts a Spell in International Dinner Cirque Show ENCHANTED
Local comedian and MC Mel Jones has been casting a spell as The Enchantress in ENCHANTED, the thrilling international cirque production that opened in the Cape Town last month. Jones hosts the show in the mirror palace next to the Cape Town Stadium, presenting - with the help of co-host Piky Pokus, a multi-talented slapstick performer from Argentina - some of the world's finest entertainment artists to audiences in the Mother City.
Jones is a mother, a stand up comic, an award-nominated producer and an energetic and hugely popular corporate comedian and MC. Capetonians may have heard her on the radio as the co-presenter of a very popular morning show, seen her on SABC3's COMEDY SHOWCASE, THE PHAT JOE SHOW and Comedy Central's critically acclaimed comedy and sketch show, BITCHES. She has also appeared in the KING SIZE COMEDY tour, the BLACKS ONLY COMEDY SHOW, MIND THE GAP, THE HEAVYWEIGHT COMEDY JAM and KINGS & QUEENS OF COMEDY.
The superstar acts that Jones introduces include crossbow contortionist and silk artist, Orissa Kelly; cloud swing and hoop artist, Tom McKinnon; laser and bubble magic man, Thomas Favaro; and twin trapeze aerial acrobatic act, Aquaterra. Many more sensational acts await to thrill the audience from the moment when glamorous guests step inside the opulent venue in which the magic unfolds.
Proudly supported by KFM94.5, ENCHANTED takes place in its specially constructed venue on the P3 parking in Green Point, in front of the Cape Town Stadium, behind McDonald's.
