A Bloggers #GRCExp at @GoldReefCitySA – Parker’s

Did you know there was a Parker’s at Gold Reef City’s Casino Hotel?

We didn’t, not till we got there and were told we’d be seeing a show!

When we walked out of Parker’s, I actually had sore tummy muscles and a headache from laughing! It was some line-up let me tell you.
@meltsieb was the host for the evening with @darrenmaule headlining.
Also on stage was @MarkDotBanks@moniquenortje@alfredadriaan and someone- something- I have only ever seen in the movies, a comedian completely failing on stage… He called himself The Couch Ninja and he was the only act I couldn’t find on Twitter. I felt SO bad for him. I almost wanted to laugh just to make him feel better.

I don’t often watch stand-up comedy because I laugh myself into an asthmatic coughing fit which is most disturbing to witness, but on Saturday night I managed to rein myself in by forcing myself to stop laughing when I felt like my chest was getting dodgy.

And I’m glad I could stay for the whole show. Obviously not every comic caters to everyone’s taste, but Monique Nortje was hysterically funny and Darren Maule was fantastic! They were by far my favourite acts of the evening. And Alfred Adriaan used his open mic opportunity to its fullest and I can see him going far on the comedy scene.

Next time you’re at Gold Reef City – whether you’re gambling or rocking the theme park, make a plan to end your day with a show at Parker’s Comedy in The Globe.

    OMG Darren Maule drives me nuts every morning on east coast radio, he is so boring and his opinions are so lame and I always think his intellect is non-existent. I’m actually shocked to find out that he is a comedian.
