Welcome Back - CCA 2014
Last year, the Comic's Choice Awards was the biggest ever, adding R30m in additional media coverage to the local comedy industry, and seeing 27% more comics than ever before taking part.
There were a total of five events, including all the newcomers coming together for a groundbreaking showcase at the Soweto Theatre. Patrons were unanimously struck by the energy of almost every single new comic on one line-up, which whizzed by in two hours, using an innovative "race against the clock"… the sponsors were so taken with the show that they have committed to this event going forward.
The Grilling Of A Lifetime saw Barry Hilton lovingly ribbed by a group of fantastic comics … and the CCA Showcase once again lit up the Lyric. It is now very clear that the Comic's Choice Awards is really starting to make a difference.
A lot of this is thanks to the trust, support and participation of the comedians who register, participate and provide feedback.
South African comedy is really world-class, and we believe deserves to be acknowledged with a fitting accolade. The Waldo statuettes and carefully constructed voting system ticks these boxes.
As always, we have listened to feedback, advised our systems team, and look forward to announcing further refinements, minor tweaks and new parameters as we go.
The team is planning another hopefully "balls-to-the-wall, let's-get-arrested" series of events for 2014, with registration opening on the 27th January.
