PG Comics head to National Arts Festival

Taking to the stage at this year’s National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, the pickledginger comics are guaranteeing non-stop laughter at some of the best comedy shows that will be wooing audiences from the 2nd to the 12th of July.


A main highlight of the PG Comics line-up is the brand new, hilarious cooking/comedy collaboration by Chris Forrest (comedian and Celebrity Masterchef SA winner) and Pete Goffe-Wood (celebrity chef and Masterchef SA judge) in their “whisk-qué” show, Don’t Burn Your Sausage that will have you salivating salaciously and crying with laughter.

Having received rave reviews at NAF 2014 and its most recent successful Durban and Johannesburg shows, Who’s Your Daddy? starring Chris Forrest is back by popular demand to the festival stage.  A must see show for those who are parents, those who want to be parents or those who know parents!

Be sure not to miss the hilarious antics of Chris Forrest, Deep Fried Man and Warren Robertson, back with all new material and a top SA guest comedian each night to prove that they’re Still Funnier Than Them.

And debuting his second one-man show, The Great Explorer, Warren Robertson delves into the pages of history – what he learns won’t change the world, but it might make you want to get on an airplane to go and see it.

A deliciously funny, rather whisk-qué comedy/cooking show demonstrating how food and sex are delectably intertwined; how food can get you laid and the correct way to use your chopper.  MasterChef SA judge, Pete Goffe-Wood and renowned comic & Celebrity MasterChef SA winner, Chris Forrest, team up to prepare the ultimate 3 course “Spadework Meal” consisting of Foreplay, Intercourse & Afterglow that will have you salivating salaciously whilst crying with laughter.

Still Funnier Than Them:

Starring Chris Forrest, Deep Fried Man and Warren Robertson

The combination of Chris Forrest’s dry one-liners, Deep Fried Man’s musical parodies and Warren Robertson’s dark hilarity led to rave reviews and sold-out shows in 2014. Now they are back with all-new material and a top SA comedian guest each night to prove that they’re Still Funnier Than Them.

The Great Explorer:

Starring Warren Robertson
Directed by Chris Forrest

Consumed by wanderlust, comedian Warren Robertson’s seemingly insatiable desire to travel the world has taken him to over 30 countries and far from the creature comforts of home. Now in his second one-man show, he delves into the pages of history to examine the Great Explorers of the past in an attempt to find a common thread that answers the question, “Why do we need to travel?” It’s the history that your teachers never taught you about the characters you thought you already knew. From Magellan to Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta and Scott of the Antarctic, what he learns won’t change the world, but it might make you want to get on an airplane to go and see it.

Who’s Your Daddy?:

Starring Chris Forrest

Directed by Bevan Cullinan


Chris Forrest is back on stage with his hilarious one-man show, Who’s Your Daddy? – a clueless dad’s journey to fatherhood.  Who’s Your Daddy? is about Chris’ own experience of becoming a father.  From pregnancy to birth to looking after an infant and everything in between, the show is a laugh-a-minute hilarious look at what really happens and how to deal with it.  It is a must-see for anyone wanting to become a parent or who is a parent or who knows a parent!  Who’s Your Daddy? is proudly brought to you by Huggies.  The show is written and performed by Chris Forrest and directed by Bevan Cullinan.  Chris only finished writing the show after his daughter turned one – because of sleep deprivation.  Chris involves the audience and they are made to feel partly responsible for this masterpiece.  Chris Forrest has been on the forefront of the SA comedy scene since the late 90’s.  His unique dry sense of humour, quick wit and intelligent comedy has made him one of the country’s most popular comedians.  Audiences are left in stitches wherever he goes.
