When Music Comic Mark Eddie performed in South Africa as part of Nando's Comedy Festival, he won over a number of new fans, including this one, who wrote a glowing review of Mark and the show. Check it out below:
A Review: The Durbs Comedy Fest
By Jil from Zero31.co.za
Mark Eddie kicked off the Nando's Comedy Festival concert with insanely good impersonations of muso's and showed off some seriously good guitar skills. He engaged with the audience from the get go, setting the vibe and pace for the evening. After his set, he introduced us to the next act, Dan Cummins. He was fuh-nee, poking fun at how bizarrely slow Durban moves. It's true, you can't deny it.

Next up was Capetonian Nik Rabinowitz. The one speaks fluent Xhosa, rad! He owned the crowd with his different SA cultural impersonations. Then came a Mr. Michael Loftus. He's one of the writers for the George Lopez show. He's an old hand at this, he was comfortable and did his thing, laughing at his own jokes. Love it when they do that…
...Back onto the stage after him was the talented Mark Eddie. Between each comedian he'd do a little set then introduce then next guy. He is a talented guitar player, and I really dug the way he incorporated the whole muso thing into his sets. He ended it by saying he wished he was in a band, --and whoosh! The curtains behind him dropped and a full band was set up and within seconds they were jamming. Lights flashing, sound roaring through the auditorium. An epic way to end a hilarious evening. Everyone cheered.
We laughed far too much. Definitely a win for a Friday night. If you didn't go, you missed out massively! Dark Knight and I left with happy hearts, sore stomach muscles and pained cheeks...
