Keeping You In Stiches features an all star cast of funny men including Riaad Moosa, Conrad Koch, Kurt Schoonraad and Stuart Taylor.

The show forms part of the University of Cape Town Medical School's Centenary celebrations and takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Saturday 17th November at 8pm.

The show will be hosted by doctor-turned-comedian Riaad Moosa, who has recently played the lead role in the South African movie Material opposite comedians Joey Rasdien and Nik Rabinowitz. His previous sold-out one-man shows have included Strictly Halaal and Riaad Moosa For The Baracka, and Three Wise Men and Three Wiser Men, the hit comedy shows created by David Kramer.

Stuart Taylor is probably most familiar as the presenter of SABC 3’s hit travel show, Going Nowhere Slowly, but has swopped life in front of the camera for stand-up comedy. Taylor’s delightful potion of enigmatic entertainment has mesmerised audiences from theatres to boardrooms across the globe, performing for many multinational companies. Taylor is a past recipient of the prestigious Overall Best Comedy award at the National Arts Festival and the Show Time award for the best solo performance.  

Conrad Koch has, over the past 15 years, combined hilarious comedy with world class puppetry, to international acclaim. He has worked all over the world, been featured on local and international television and is a frequent guest at some of South Africa’s biggest comedy events.

Hailing from Mitchell's Plain, Kurt Schoonraad’s earthy humour makes him a real South African boykie in every way. He performs a clean act focusing on the widespread diversity of our rainbow nation’s varied cultures and the funny situations in which we find ourselves. Kurt pioneered Jou Ma se Comedy Club, a popular and ground-breaking weekly showcase that is truly benefiting Cape Town culture and the comedy industry as a whole.

Keeping You in Stitches is on for one night only on 17 November 2012 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), at 8pm. Tickets cost from R100 to R250 via Computicket with discounted tickets available for students on presentation of a valid student card. There is a 10% disclount is available for group bookings.
