Jerm Comedy Club book

Comedy Club is here

I am thrilled to announce the launch of my second book, Comedy Club, which will be in bookstores around the country, from October.

Penguin Books launched my first book, Jerm Warfare, a year ago. But now it’s time to retreat from the war, and to be entertained by some standup comedy from our comedians politicians.

Comedy Club is a more focused selection of cartoons, covering a variety of current affairs from the last year. The book’s cover design is gorgeous, and includes blurbs from some of South Africa’s funniest comedians (who are not politicians).

If you’re in Cape Town, then the launch will be at The Book Lounge on the 9th of October, 17h30 for 18h00. Nik Rabinowitz will be the special guest, meaning that you probably won’t get a seat if you arrive late.

Thank you for the support.

UPDATE:  For the book launch, please RSVP.

ANOTHER UPDATE: ZANEWS made a great promo video.
