THE STAND UP

AARON MCILROY

Funnyman Aaron McIlroy’s stage comedy is co-written and directed by Susan Monteregge.

“ THE STAND UP “ is an all new one man show featuring the inimitable Aaron casting his later beam gaze on the why’s, wherefore’s and where-with-all’s of stage comedy.

One of South Africa’s most popular entertainers , with a string of block busters under his belt ( THE LOSER , MR PERSONALITY , MY COUSIN BROTHER and most recently , the multi-award winning DEFENDING THE PLANET ), Aaron is now set to put the whole comic genre under the microscope.
Stand by for aching abs and tears of mirth as our expert presents the entire spectrum of comics, from the amateur wanna - be to the fully fledged MC.

While Aaron’s comedy style is typically character driven, there is always an element of social satire beneath the surface. Then of course there is also that unpredictable edge, an over the top element in his performance style that single handedly proclaims theatre to be an extreme sport.

The new script introduces a clutch of new characters into the McIlroy gallery , but devotees need not fear , a number of old favourites get a look in – not least the ubiquitous Vee Jay – who appears as the owner of a seedy comedy club !!

Maintaining his winning formula of comedy with music, this new show is set to take the corporate world by storm.

Entertainment that could be physically damaging . . .


AARON MCILROY’S

D.O.F.

Funnyman Aaron McIlroy’s latest stage comedy D.O.F. unleashes the popular entertainer’s distinctive brand of satire on fertile new terrain. Directed by Steven Stead and presented at the Catalina Theatre on Durban’s Wilson’s Wharf, D.O.F. casts a whole new perspective on the Department of Forensics – taking in the sharp (and not-so-sharp) devices of the criminal mind.

McIlroy’s new one-man show takes the form of a lecture demonstration which coincides with the opening of Diep Kaak, a high-profile new prison. Our host is Joel Liebenberg, Chief Forensics Officer at D.O.F. (The Department of Forensics).

“Nothing defines humans better than their willingness to do seemingly irrational things in pursuit of phenomenally unlikely pay-offs,” says Joel. “This is illustrated by the likes of lotteries, religion and, in my experience, dating.”

Taking part in Joel’s lec dem, and only too willing to share the limelight, are several inmates who’ve taken up residence in Diep Kaak (they’ve all been caught by Joel). These shady characters include Dr Norman Lectum, self-proclaimed artist, psychologist and alternative lifestyle guru; Connie Naaiman (a local politician); Pepe “Grande” Gonzales, a vertically-challenged Hispanic drug mule; Shambok Sithole, a reformed gangster; and the ubiquitous Veejay, who declares he’s the only innocent person in Diep Kaak…

Cover songs featured in the show include hits by Super Tramp, Monty Python, Enrique Iglesias, Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, Shaggy and Lou Read.



THE LOSER

With AARON MCILROY

The show features local Durban comedian Aaron McIlroy.
The show is a musical comedy and the duration is 50 minutes.

Aaron McIlroy has a strong background in musical theatre having performed in shows such as “ Grease “ and “ Good Vibrations “ , before deciding to join forces with his wife Lisa Bobbert. Together they wrote , starred in and produced hit shows such as “ Sex, Bugs and rock and roll “ , “ The Revenge of the pink panties “ and “ Belly-Laughs “.

It was during Lisa’s pregnancy that Aaron decided to also offer the option of a solo show and “The Loser” was the result. The show is a hysterical send up of motivational speakers with Aaron portraying motivational speaker TRUSCOTT PRICE. Truscott takes the stage (with the customary slogan and flip chart!!) and introduces himself to the audience. Aaron then proceeds to introduce various “loser type” characters who attempt to explain to the audience how Truscott changed their lives (all characters portrayed by Aaron).
These characters include “ Rocky “ the body-builder from Umbilo , Seamus O Shea – the one arm Irish river dancer and “ Reggie” - the Durban Indian.

The show is a combination of comedy and music and is extremely inter-active – the show can be used as evening entertainment or as part of a team-building session.

Both the private and public sector have applauded the show.
