Marc Lottering’s new show Not in 3D at On Broadway

Send to Kindle

I’m sure you have heard about Aunty Merle Abrahams “lemon meringue”, if not then you have obviously not seen Marc Lottering live. This September, come and see Marc Lottering Not in 3D at On Broadway. Join him and some of his favourite alter egos for a few laughs.

Marc Lottering is a familiar face in Cape Town and hands down one of my all time favourite comedians. I’ve seen him in a number of shows and even own a few of his dvd’s, for when I need a burst of laughter to brighten up my day …

Marc Lottering, Not in 3DAs the son of a pastor and growing up on the Cape Flats, Marc certainly has a colourful background which has given him ample opportunity to create characters that every South African can relate to. He has won awards, namely the Vita Theatre and Fleur du Cap as well as performing to South African’s all around the world.

Some of my favourite past shows have been From the Cape Flats with Love, Hallelujah and Three Wise Men (performed with Riaad Moosa and Nik Rabinowitz), here I was introduced to some of his characters, Aunty Merle, Smiley, Colleen and a few others.

Aunty Merle is one character who I will always remember. She hails from Belgravia Road in Athlone and has some wonderful anecdotes of life and love and she will keep you laughing throughout her time on stage.

Colleen is a permanent casual and she has been for nine years. Opinionated and a terror behind the till you may just see a reflection of one or two people you have come across in your life in this character.

If you have been in Cape Town you will have at some point encountered a “gaartjie” who is trying to get you onto his taxi to get you to your destination. Smiley is one such “gaartjie” and has an eye for the ladies. He has some slick phrases and wise words to offer.

Marc’s latest production brings you, the audience, his latest stand-up material and if his past shows are anything to go by you will be laughing all through the show. Some hints on what this show has to offer are Marc’s insights on how to make love to foreigners and how you can get other movie goers not to use their cell phones in the cinema. Sounds like fun doesn’t it?
