Marc Lottering to debut his first online show – “My Fellow South Africans”

Marc Lottering


Local comedian Marc Lottering is about to perform his first online show since lockdown began on March 28. Aptly called “My Fellow South Africans,” the opening line of every presidential speech during lockdown, we know it well, Lottering has not given any hints as to the characters he will showcase in the 50-minute show.

With theatres most definitely staying dark until the end of the year and a tour of Aunty Merle  It’s a Girl cancelled due to the pandemic, Lottering has finally decided to give “digital live theatre” a go.

Hubby Anwar McKay is the director and producer of the show which will be streamed live from the Penny Lane Studios in Wynberg on Saturday night.

As posted on the Quicket website, “ One of South Africa's favourite comedians has some lockdown stories to tell. This is Marc Lottering's first live-stream comedy show. He invites you to wash your hands, sanitize your mask, smoke your tea, and spend 50 happy minutes with him.”

Lottering told The Daily Voice,” “We are living in a seriously hectic time and what I’ve always known about our people is that no matter how crazy things get in the country, South Africans will always find the time to laugh. That’s why I’ve always tried to make people smile on my social media platforms, I think it’s important for our mental health.”

He said that live streaming is a completely new experience for him and something that he will have to get used to, "It’s not something I’ve ever wanted to do because, for me, the sound of laughter from a live audience in a theatre is everything. So Anwar has finally persuaded me to switch off the TV and write some material.”

“I obviously took the title from Uncle Cyril’s regular speeches, which would always set social media alight.”

It will be so very good to get to see you in action again Marc Lottering – and who doesn’t need a good belly laugh right now?
