0 Comments Dylan Skews At On Broadway Theatre This Month

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 03 Feb 2011 , in the Cape Town Dates To Diarise category

Well, this is in fact the funniest man in Cape Town.

So I got a message from my girlfriend the other day, saying we were going to catch some comedy at Trinity on Tuesday night, and we cruised with Mitch and Claire (Halo Live crew) None of us knew who was going to be on, and no one really stood out, but Dylan Skews.

People don’t read posts without images. So I needed to add one. I couldn’t find one of Dylan Skews, so just got one of old Jonno.

Look, I think the comedy nights at Trinity are an awesome thing, because every comedian needs live show to perfect their performances to get better. It’s all about growing comedians, and some of them are not good, but you know, even the top comedians had people throwing milkshakes at them because their shows were so shit. No one is really good from the beginning, so I can put up with the average performances, it just feels good to be part of something that is growing, and it’s good to allow the guys and girls to perform live, because that way they get better.

But Dylan Skews doesn’t need to get better, and if he does I may honestly die from laughter! Our table laughed from the moment he arrived until the moment he stepped off stage. His views on things such as Kreepy Kraulys, weed, his blow up pool as a kid, home schooling and ‘gay’ sperm were just hysterical. His stoner vibe just adds to the whole performance and his brand of jokes are truly unique, ones that were nothing similar to what I’ve ever heard.

And what really struck me was that none of his jokes really offended anyone. I don’t mind offensive jokes, but I think it takes monumental skill to tell jokes that don’t pick on any one trait of people. It’s easy to pick on the fat guy in the crowd, but it’s really difficult to have the floor dying from laughter, without picking on anyone. To me, that was the standout of his performance. And when he did pick on the dude on the front row, he realised the dude wasn’t that stoked, and quickly turned the joke on himself.

Pure class.

Anyway, Dylan Skews is having a one man show at On Broadway Theatre, Long Street, Cape Town from the 15th until the 26th of February, with a special performance on the 14th of February.

I don’t often get overly excited about event, but I’m urging you to book tickets for this!! The show is called ‘Skews Me’ and I’m really amped for it.

Dylan won the Nando’s Comedy Showdown in 2009, and was the winner of Phat Joe’s comedy show in 2010, where he was named ‘Cape Town’s Next Comedian’ He is honestly the funniest man in this city.

So if you want some easy entertainment, catch ‘Skews Me’ at On Broadway Theatre this month, you won’t regret it.
