Picture of comedian Kurt Schoonraad
After a sold-out national tour leaving many a funny bone shattered in his comedy wake, Kurt Schoonraad returns to the Baxter Theatre with his one man comedy show Home Groan.

Directed by Rob van Vuuren, and a brand new set, Kurt tackles the absurdities of everyday life from men's waxes, alien abductions, super heroes and many more characters that float around his wacky head.

Kurt is no stranger to the comedy circuit, appearing in many local and international comedy festivals and has had  significant roles in popular SABC TV series;  the  quirky accidental tourist in Going Nowhere Slowly,  the whacky protagonist in Crazy Games (2006-09) and was one of the first celebrities to feature in Who Do You Think You Are?  He also pioneered the successful Jou Ma se Comedy Club and, from his hilarious childhood growing up in the Flats to his equally hilarious present, Kurt discovered that coloured people are taking over the world !!

Director Rob van Vuuren, a comic Tour de Force and versatile performer himself (Twakkie, in The Most Amazing Show, Strictly Come Dancing, SA’s Got Talent and more) says; ‘It was a dream come true finally to be working with the man whose hair and eyeballs I had admired from afar.  Home Groan reinforces why Schoonraad is such a stellar player in the South African Comedy industry …. while he crosses that invisible threshold between young manhood and full blown middle age!!’

‘Developing the show with Rob van Vuuren was a humbling experience as I had never tackled comedy from this angle before says Kurt.  It has been very rewarding working with a well known South African comedy genius like Rob ….  but I wouldn’t be able to finish a whole one!”
