Fresh Comedy series is a getaway from the general politics of the world and allows one to kick back and relax once in a while.
Held every Tuesday at Cresta President Hotel’s The Meeting Place restaurant, the laugh-a-thon sessions, offers a chilled ambience with good food, fun and affordable drinks.
The weekly sessions are frequented by the young working class, corporates who bring their staff or clients, as well as arts lovers, and socialites, all who want to enjoy a low-key week night out with a difference.
The line-up includes some of the city’s finest comedians such as BK, Brian, Kgafela, Jonny Pula and Trics. Charles Manase is the host with the most. According to a representative of the organisers, Pitch Marketing and Advertising, the aim of the comedy sessions is to provide a platform for upcoming and established comedians to share their experiences, tricks of the trade and skills, in effort to contribute to the growth of the comedy industry in Botswana.
“We would like to grow so as to establish other shows in urban centres nationwide.
The short term goal is to have a fresh line-up with fresh jokes and games,” he said.
He added that the attendance currently averages 50 people each week and doubles at month end.
“We want an intimate feel.
We have started having a regular fan base and we hope that the attendance will grow, although we would like to keep that small crowd feel.”
