It’s the start of a new year which means it’s time for SA funnyman Alan Committie to bring us another hilarious look at the world around us….

In this, his 20th one man comedy show, Committie presents a docu-comedy in the highest definition and promises everything we have come to love about his brand of comic madness…. Infectious energy, physical hi-jinx combined with witty wordplay and hysterical observations.

PLANET MIRTH is a comic look at…. well…. everything. Our planet has never been in a more precarious state and that makes it ripe for Committie to unpack how we got here, where we are and how the heck we are ever going to move forward.

Using stand up, characters and sketches, Committie will attempt to hysterically navigate through history, geography, science and even sport but mostly it will make you look at the world around you and laugh till you cry. And then we will collect those tears and you can use them to water your parched gardens!!

It’s a pleasure.

Our obsession with hiking, the science of sign language, the craziness of family gatherings, gallons of garnish and confusing astrology are just some of the topics he may (or may not talk about). I have no control over this fella. I simply write the media release….

There’s even a sketch exploring what it must be like to be a certain president’s therapist. It’ll trump all that goes before it….

It’s the perfect new year tonic to another mad year on this planet.
