Real Comedy

Since its launch in 2000, Real Concerts' Comedy division, Real Comedy, has become a formidable force, hosting the biggest comedy events in South Africa. Their numerous achievements include producing sell-out one man shows for the likes of David Kau, Riaad Moosa and Barry Hilton, as well as establishing successful brands along the way, including the "Heavyweight Comedy Jam", the "Blacks Only Comedy Show", and the "King Size Comedy Shows".

The Heavyweight Comedy Jam is a cutting edge comedy show, featuring South Africa's top comedians as well as three or four international acts. These shows have broken all attendance records, selling close to Five thousand tickets per night at venues in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth. With prominent media partners involved, including 94.7, more than twenty thousand people attend ranging in age between eighteen and forty-five years old, across all markets.

Blacks only Comedy, a partnership with David Kau, is the fastest growing comedy brand in the country, with an average audience of over four thousand people. Yfm - Johannesburg's biggest youth radio station quickly realised the potential of this concept and has since become the dedicated media partner. The Blacks Only Comedy Show has become one of the most anticipated events on the social calendar and showcases the countries top black comedians.

King Size Comedy is responsible for managing some of the countries top comedians and producing an annual comedy show at Emperors palace casino.

Real and KSCM's reputation in the entertainment industry ensures all their shows are produced according to the highest international standards, and this together with the company's commitment to pioneering comedy is the reason that comedy, once considered an underground form of entertainment with a niche target audience, has become one of the most popular nights out!
