Based: Cape Town
Comedian Carl Weber is “bald, confident and owns the stage” (ComedyCrntral). He speaks excitedly about the differences between his hometown of Bloemfontein and his new home Cape Town. He can switch seamlessly between his impersonations and spends a lot of time breaking down what is wrong with the world of TV and films. Rolling your eyes? Not at all. The broad theme might be staid, but Weber gives it a fresh klap and beats it into something original.
This self-confessed “farm boy” has been honing he’s comedic skills on the Cape Town comedy circuit since 2010. He has performed at the annual Rocking the Daisies Festival for the past 4 years, doing outdoor events like 2010 annual Kite festival as well as 2011 Navy festival. In 2011 he won the Phat Joe’s Cape Town’s Next Comic sponsored by Heart FM. Taking the leap into theatre, Carl completed a 4 night run as part of Stuart Taylor’s Intimate Comedy Sessions at On Broadway. He was also chosen to open to 1500 people for Loyiso Gola’s one man show “Life & Times”, where his set was extremely well received. He has gone on to win the Graca comedy showdown 2011, which won him a spot in the coveted Nandos comedy festival, sharing a stage with international comics like Greg Behrendt (best selling author of “he’s just not that into you”) and the internationally acclaimed comic Pablo Francisco.
