David Newton - Fleur du Cap comedy

We wanted to congratulate David Newton for his stand-up comedy show 'Defending the Laid Man' being nominated for 2 x 2007 FLEUR DU CAP awards: ‘People’s Choice’ award & 'Best Performance in a one-hander'.

He’s pretty chuffed as his year is really looking sparkly, with lots of shows planned, and even some time planned in London, New York and then an appearance at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in August– but I will have more information closer to the time!

What I can say is that 'Defending the Laid Man' will be in Cape Town for one night only @ Baxter Theatre Concert Hall on the 1st March. David says the evening is going to be a bit of a V.I.P. evening – so get your tickets at Computicket now!

His new show, ‘David Newton Live & Outspoken’ is going to be at the Obz Café, Observatory from 20 March – 14 April, and then at the Catalina Theatre in Durban from 8 – 20 May. This new show is going to beat his previous ratings, and they weren’t half bad themselves; the Cape Times saying “Sex has never been this funny”; and ArtSmart saying “What Dr Phil & Oprah could not achieve ‘Defending the Laid Man’ does: a healthy, open, extremely funny and wonderfully accurate reflection of the realities of sex and relationships”.

Cape Town will have an opportunity of enjoying a good laugh on the 1st of June when Live & Outspoken will be presented at the Baxter Theatre for one night only, for the making of the DVD. A pretty cool way to be a part of David’s success!

Here are some tame snippets from his DVD – Defending the Laid Man – Live at the Obz Café – I had to keep it tame, as this is a family show!
