30 June - 11 July
BANKSRUPT with Mark Banks!
MARK BANKS in
30th June – 11th July
South African comedy legend Mark Banks is back – and this time he is going for broke in his new one-man show BANKSRUPT, to be staged for two weeks only. After several years of working on the biggest comedy line-up shows in South Africa, MARK BANKS makes a triumphant return. The show promises to be his greatest comedy work yet.
“The title is about where we are as a nation – we’re broke – financially, morally and mentally. I want to sketch out the villains behind this sorry state we’re in, obviously with a tongue in cheek flavour, to keep it interesting” says Banks.
