Nik Rabinowitz What the EFF?

Nik Rabinowitz What the EFF?


Top South African comedian Nik Rabinowitz returns to the Fugard Theatre with What the EFF?, his brand new show that runs over the festive season from 16 to 31 December 2014.

It's hard to live in South Africa for more than five minutes without looking around in wide-eyed bewilderment, and asking: "What the EFF?”. Whether it's hippies rubbing their chords together to produce solar energy, militants marching into parliament in Pep Store overalls and Italian shoes, or taxi drivers who manage to simultaneously cut you off and flip you the bird while paging through the newspaper and counting their money… at some point in every day, you will say: "What the EFF?”. Fortunately, Nik Rabinowitz is here to answer that question. Or maybe not answer it, so much as shake it a bit, and see what falls out.

From the leafy green ganglands of Constantia, to the imaginary book storage lockers of Limpopo, Rabinowitz casts his eye far and wide, and muses: "What the EFF?”. And if politics isn't your cup of tea, there's plenty of other ridiculousness that'll have you shaking your head, and clutching your sides.

This show is 100% vegan and eco-friendly, and made up of 10% recycled material and 15% up cycled jokes. No punch lines were tested on animals. Bring your own canvas bag.
