Celebrate the arrival of spring with life’s best medicine, laughter! As the temperatures warm up, Emperors Palace will set the mood with a line-up of South Africa’s top comedy entertainment. It will be time to pack away the winter woollies and to visit the Palace of Dreams to experience some hot hilarity from some of the funniest comedians.

The beloved Joey Rasdien will bring his off-the-wall one-man show aptly entitled, Mixed DNA to the Theatre of Marcellus for three nights only on 30, 31 August and 2 September. Joey will share his zany yet thought-provoking humour through poking fun at the social, political, moral and ethical questions faced in the country. Ticket prices start from R80 per person and the venue is guaranteed to be packed to the rafters. 

For one night only Kings and Queens of Comedy will bring together some of the nation’s greatest comedians on one stage in the Centre Court on 21 September. The comedy show will be an unforgettable evening that will feature comedy kings Nik Rabinowitz, Muthu Murugan and Trevor Gumbi and comedy queens Ann Herch, Tracy Klass, Tumi Morake and Mel Jones in a comedy battle to be crowned the King and Queen of comedy. Funnyman Mel Miller will make a guest appearance and MC will be none other than Joey Rasdien. Tickets start from R160 per person and special dinner and show packages are available. 

Those Indian Guys will be at it again with another hilarious comedy show in 64@ The Palace from 7 - 9 September and 14 - 16 September. The hugely talented Kaseran Pillay and Sans Moonsamy will give an action packed performance that will tell the story of two nutty friends and their adventures in a series of side-splitting skits and hysterical impersonations that will have the audience in stitches. Tickets start from R120 per person. 

Emperors Palace will have a great afternoon of laughs lined-up with the legendary cousin, Barry Hilton on 23 September in the gardens of the D’oreale Grande hotel. Celebrate a humorous Heritage Day at R60 per person with free entry for children under 12 years. Enjoy a festive spring afternoon and bring along sunblock, blankets and deck chairs. 

Emperors Palace will host one of the best Indian stand-up comedians in South Africa, the amusing Muthu Murugan in The Indian King of Comedy on 22 and 23 September in the Theatre of Marcellus. The evening will promise loads of entertainment as Murugan will guarantee uncontrollable fits laughter with his sardonic and social commentary on a spectrum of topics. The funnyman’s motivational and thought-provoking messages will leave audiences reeling with laughter and the comedy showcase will also feature rising star, Carvin H. Goldstone. Tickets start from R100 per person. 

Comedy and jazz will never be the same again with Comedy meets Jazz featuring South Africa's all-time great Afro-fusion band, Stimela, the sensational multi-award winning singer and songwriter, Thandiswa Mazwai, and funnymen Mongezi (Tol Ass Mo) and Loyiso Gola.
