Comedy in the Park: Your Favourites Live and Outdoors at Maynardville Festival

See which four of Cape Town’s funniest comedians return to Wynberg as the Jesters in the Park at this year’s Maynardville Open-Air Festival

Produced by local comedy hero Kurt Schoonraad’s Cape Town Comedy Club. Hosted by actor and funnyman Rob van Vuuren. Jesters in the Park returns (after a tremendously successful first season in 2018) to shoulder its way between the Ballet and Philharmonic Orchestra at the Maynardville Open-Air Festival in Wynberg, from 31 January to 2 February 2019. Here’s what you need to know about the event and how you can see it.   

The event will showcase four of South Africa’s top comedians and will be hosted by funnyman Rob van Vuuren. See Comic Choice award-winner Phil de Lange cracking jokes, up and coming actor and comedian Dylan Skews (he even has a BA in live performance) as well as the witty Reagen Allen live in this lineup of leading comedians.

Ticket prices range R100–R150 per person. Friday tickets cost R100pp, while Saturday tickets cost between R120pp–R150pp. Block bookings over eight people on Saturday cost R140 per person.

Jesters in the Park is just one of the events a part of the Maynardville Open-Air Festival. The entire festival runs from 17 January until 10 March 2019. The festival, produced and presented by the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre Trust and LiquidMatch Productions, includes an ever-popular annual Shakespeare performance, live music from the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, a ballet, Sunday night concerts as well as the opportunity to picnic on the lawn – all under the stars.
