Pieter Toerien’s Theatre, Montecasino



All covid-19 protocols will be observed and social distancing will be implemented in the seating arrangements. Remember he/she who laughs masked, laughs best!

Having weathered the second and third Covid-19 storm, we are finally ready to re-open our doors and welcome back our loyal and supportive audiences. We look forward to once again presenting World-Class entertainment on our stage at Montecasino – Jo’Burg’s top (and safest) entertainment destination!

It’s been the wildest year yet with the most unexepected and crazy pandemic turning our existance inside out and upside down.

Renowned funny man, Alan Committie, however is determined that we keep laughing in the face of of it all.

So join him in his latest hilarious solo stand up show which re-opens Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre – Apocolaughs Now!

Global lockdown, earthquakes in Plumstead, cigarette and alcohol bans, Cricket South Africa  out for a duck, Trumpeting leaders blowing hot air and the only response we have had so far is to dance the Jerusalema (which is how drunk people pronounce Julius Malema after 2am in the morning)…..

But now Committie explores how we can stay sane and healthy in body, mind and soul with his usual madcap verbal wit and physical comedy shenanigans.

Our intrepid jester tries to understand wellness coaches, explores the world of tik-tok videos, and unpacks how we thought the world would end versus how it’s actually happening and may or may not have found the missing R500 billion promised to the nation!
