Banksrupt6 - 24 Nov 2013
Stand-up Comedy 

South African comedy legend Mark Banks is back – and this time he is going for broke in his new one-man show, Banksrupt!  The show, which is being produced by Whacked: Special Project, incorporates stand-up, sketch and video; making it one that the world cannot ignore!

After several years of working on the biggest comedy line-up shows in South Africa, Banks makes a triumphant return to Durban. The legendary multi-purpose improviser and lighting speed anarchist just keeps getting better! The Royal Albert Hall, the Hammersmith Apollo and the PE Opera House are better off having hosted this iconic showman.  Banksrupt! has been years in the making and in consultation with two wise men, a babbling gnome and Kobus Wiese, the show promises to be his greatest comedy work yet.  

‘The title is about where we are as a nation – we’re broke – financially, morally and mentally and I want to sketch out the villains behind this sorry state we’re in, obviously with a tongue in cheek flavour to keep it interesting,’ says Banks. According to witnesses the show is described as ‘Screamingly funny…’, ‘Up to the minute’ and ‘technically, libel’. This production has even been rated as ‘Blazing’. 

Catch Mark Banks live in Banksrupt!  He takes no prisoners, and your money!   Shows are Wed - Fri at 7:30pm; Sat at 2:30pm and 7:30pm and Sun at 6pm. Tickets are R100 per person, with advance booking through Computicket. The show carries an age restriction of no under 16's.
