Catch award-winning Shimmy Isaacs at Hanover Street Comedy Sundowners
Award-winning comedienne, Shimmy Isaacs, is the rose amongst the thorns at the November 2017 edition of the Hanover Street Comedy Sundowners at GrandWest. The Worcester born and raised entertainer unleashes her savvy humour alongside Johannesburg’s Dillan Oliphant and Ndumiso Lindi as well as Bredasdorp’s Dugald Pieterse on Sunday, 5 November 2017.
Isaacs needs little introduction to local comedy fans. She produced her first one-woman show, Allie Pad Funny Worcester in 2010 under the direction of well-known comedian Rob van Vuuren. By 2011, Showbiz Reports ranked her the seventh funniest comedian and actress in South Africa’s top ten comedians of 2011.
In 2012, she produced Howzit my Bra which earned her the KKNK Oudtshoorn Art Festival award for best actress in a solo performance and the KykNet Fiesta award for best newcomer. Over the years Isaacs has performed with and worked alongside top comedians including Mark Lottering, Kurt Schoonraadt, Tumi Morake, David Kau, Loyiso Golo and Mark Banks.
