Doctor of fun offers a cure

EXPECT top-notch comedy and hunky musicians on the entertainment menu in Port Elizabeth over the next few days.

For instance, although he may look very serious on our cinema screens at the moment in the role of a struggle hero, funnyman Riaad Moosa will be changing lanes to more familiar territory tomorrow night.

The “Comedy Doctor” will be “consulting” in the city during a stop-over on his Doctor’s Orders worldwide tour.

Moosa has promised a whole lot of new material for his performance at the Boardwalk.

He prescribes “a healthy dose of laughter” and looking on the lighter side of life as the remedy for the nation’s ills.

Moosa is winner of the first annual South African Comic’s Choice Award, and played the lead in the well-rated comedy drama movie Material also starring Joey Rasdien and Vincent Ebrahim.

Fans can also see Moosa in the Anant Singh BBC Films production of Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom, which is on circuit at cinema complexes and in which he portrays struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada.

“When I was told he [Moosa] was going to play me, I thought: there’s nothing funny about Long Walk to Freedom,” Kathrada joked earlier this year. For a consultation with “Dr Moosa” tomorrow at 8pm, tickets can be purchased from Computicket for R150 per person.

And then on Monday, the three “handsome hunks” who make up the band ADAM will be performing a mix of self-composed songs and pop and rock covers, with a twang of modern country music thrown into the mix on the Boardwalk Amphitheatre stage at 7pm.

The band is made up of Hugo Ludik, Reynhardt Hugo and singer and producer Joe Foster.

Their songs are played on radio stations across South Africa.

Tickets for the show can be purchased from Computicket for R120 per person.
