10 Questions For: Shimmy Isaacs

Drawing material from her life story, this award-winning Worcester-born comedienne has quickly become one of the most sought-after acts on the local comedy circuit. Widely regarded as one of the Mother City’s funniest female comedians, she has performed alongside top artists such as Rob van Vuuren, Mark Lottering, Kurt Schoonraad and more.

1.  How would you describe what you do for a living?
I am an entertainer. That's how I would describe what I am doing. I feel like a rockstar.

2.  What is your most vivid childhood memory?
My first play, Cinderella.  I played the evil stepsister "Maina".

3.  If you could invite any three people, dead or alive, for dinner, who would they be and why?
1. Michael Jackson
2. David Bowie
3. John Lennon

(Gosh, they are all dead. Well I definitely get on with the dead better then.)

4. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?
It would be "It’s a Man's World". Why? Because I am a woman working in a male- dominated industry. 

5.  How would you complete this sentence?  
The South African cabinet should include a Minister of______________
HASHTAGS.

6.  What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
That I am only a comedian. I have a postgraduate degree in acting and writing, and produce and write all my shows.

7.  What is your (honest) opinion of Cape Town?
It is honestly the Mother City of all cities.

8.  What's the greatest fear you've had to overcome to get where you are today?
My circumstances do not define my destiny. 

9.   What's the one thing you'd like to achieve before you die?
Hollywood.

10.  Which well-known South African personality would you, without a doubt, be able to beat in a street fight and why?  
Charlize Theron. She might be from Benoni but I am from Worcester and we can get woes.
