The Cape Town Comedy Club was first created in 2005 and part of the Cape Town Festival, as a tongue in cheek “Pop up Comedy Club”. In 2007, the club then moved to the Albert Hall in Woodstock, where Kurt’s idea to provide a regular, reputable stand-up club was welcomed with open arms by Cape Town’s laugh-craving populace.
Word soon spread and the Club became known as the mother of all Cape Town comedy clubs and home to some of the country’s greatest talent.
In November 2013 the brand finally found a permanent home at the beautiful historic Pumphouse in the heart of Cape Town’s No 1 Tourist destinations, the V&A Waterfront.
The club has hosted some of the world’s most famous comedians including; Michael Mittermeier (Germany), Christopher Titus (US), TJ Miller (US) Babben Larsson (Sweden), and the best of the best South African stars and also hosted numerous high profile corporate events. On the 30th of March 2015, Comedy Central aired the first special “Cape Town Comedy Club presents ….”, a first of its kind for Cape Town, shot live at the Cape Town Comedy Club.
