Comedy Central Presents... Live @ Parkers showcases the best established and up-and-coming comedians in a relaxed and fun environment.
Filmed in front of a live audience at the legendary Parker's Comedy Club in Montecasino, Johannesburg, each laugh-out-loud comedy showcase is hosted by a well-known stand-up artist, who MC's the gig and introduces three African comedians looking for their shot at the big time.
Kicking off the series is award-winning South African comic John Vlismas. The show is hosted by a different comedian each month, beginning with (in order of appearance) Vlismas, Conrad Koch, Loyiso Gola and Barry Hilton.
In each episode a fresh batch of comedians perform sets alongside the hosts. They include Donovan Goliath, Vittorio Leonardi, "Popps" Modikoane, Simmi Areff, Dave Levinsohn, Siya B, Deep Fried Man, Martin Jonas and Lazola Gola.
