Listen to the experts as they lift the veil on how to become a superstar overnight..

Reality TV will never be the same again. With our live entertainment scene upping its pace as 2010 gets into stride, first off the mark are Aaron McIlroy and Lisa Bobbert. The irrepressible husband-and-wife comedy duo are set to unleash fresh waves of hilarity over their fans with their hot-property new show, Reality Bites.

Reality Bites spotlights the inimitable show biz couple as they probe the global obsession with instant celebrities spawned by that media malaise of our age, the reality television show. Aided and abetted by DJ KingB, alias Nathan Redpath,  McIlroy and Bobbert, in the guise of their vacuous stage alter egos, Bruce and Charmaine Siringinson, promise to demolish any misconceptions we may cling to about what it takes to become an overnight sensation.

Rule of thumb for quick-fix super-stardom?  It’s simply a case or ‘Less Is More’. The less you have to offer, the greater your chance of hitting the jackpot – and becoming an overnight celebrity, say our experts. Think Paris Hilton on a shopping spree for designer pet food. Think Tiger Woods, emerging from rehab to set up shop as a marriage guidance councilor..

More specifically, picture our own, upwardly-mobile Charmaine, dragging that ultimate loser of a hubbie of hers, the hapless Bruce, mercilessly along in her wake, as she gate-crashes the tantalizing world of botoxed silver-screen sirens, nipped-and-tucked personal trainers, know-it-all lifestyle experts, ruthlessly outspoken fashion-stylists, and the rest.

Presented by MacBob Productions, Reality Bites promises a fast-paced evening of satire and mirth. The show is liberally laced with up-beat musical interludes and in-your-face multi-media inserts, featuring ‘celebrity guests’ who are drawn from McIlroy’s and Bobbert’s inexhaustible gallery of stage characters – all quick to offer their own advice on how to upgrade your personal branding, and attain instant material success. 

Tickets for Reality Bites at R95 are available through Computicket, on 083 915 8000, or online at Early booking is advised.
