Friday 31 March at 8pm
The Fringe @ Joburg Theatre
ONE SHOW ONLY
Tickets: R120
Bookings at www.joburgtheatre.com / Webtickets / call 0861 670 670


Join critically acclaimed theatre actor, TV actor, madly talented vocalist and professional k*k talker Mortimer Williams as he discovers the unchartered territory which fascinates us all… the mind of the South African male.
Stand-up comedy meets cabaret in this hilarious show as Morty takes us through stories and songs which demonstrate just what it is that makes the SA male tick… with a few surprises along the way.
From testosterone to toilet time this one-man adventure has it all! Morty will reveal all… literally and figuratively as you join him in doing the Full Morty… although it might not be the way you think.
Morty is the perfect combination of talent, charisma and devilish naughtiness to provide the perfect evening of entertainment for guys and girls of all ages.
The Full Morty opened in April 2015 and played two seasons at the Joburg Theatre and two sell-out National Arts Festivals in Grahamstown (2015/2016).

Live Jukebox – The only live musical game show in the country is back for another kick-ass evening of musical mayhem!
The brainchild of Ginger Cube Productions; Live Jukebox made its debut at the 2016 National Arts Festival and has been performing to raucous crowds ever since.
Seasoned entertainer Mortimer Williams (of Skeem Saam fame) and theatre personality Kristy Suttner come together for this musical rollercoaster that gets audiences tapping their feet and bopping in the aisles. The duo is supported by a 4-piece live band, led by musical genius Saranti Reeders.
So how does it work?
Remember the TV game shows Liriekeraai and Noot vir Noot? What about Don’t Forget the Lyrics or Whose Line is it Anyway?
Live Jukebox is a musical gameshow where the audience calls the shots. In the safe hands of the on-stage team, contestants are led through various games from music trivia to lip-sync battles; guess the note and more. The audience selects the genre for each game, such as pop, rock, local and decades 60’s through 90’s.
Whether you’re into quietly tapping your foot to your favourite Parlotones classic or unleashing your inner Diva on stage with a Whitney Houston impersonation, Live Jukebox has something for everyone.
As that jukebox is played, the audience is responsible for deciding the content of the show and how their night will turn out. No two shows are the same.


Book your seat for Joburg’s sensational musical comedy gameshow and experience a night out at the theatre that will leave you begging for more!
