Kurt Schoonraad is one of South Africa’s most instantly recognisable stand-up comedians. With his earthy humour and comedic range he connects with audiences from every corner of South Africa, not to mention internationally, even making the front page of the New York Times.

The actor and comedian says that hailing from Mitchell’s Plain in Cape Town, one of South Africa’s largest townships, Kurt Schoonraad – Corporate Comedian was highly influential in developing his sense of humour and comedy style.

Kurt’s professional comedy career took off almost two decades ago. In that time he has been consistently performing stand-up comedy onstage, and has also gone on to produce and perform his hugely successful one man shows all over the country.

Kurt first earned attention as the quirky accidental tourist on the hit TV series “Going Nowhere Slowly”. He has since been acknowledged as one of SA’s favourite TV personalities, hosting game shows, appearing in the well-known BBC format “Who Do You Think You Are?” and “Comedy Central presents Kurt Schoonraad”. He stars in various big screen productions, with his most recent lead performance in the international award-winning South African movie “Skeem”.

Kurt Schoonraad represents a wholesome character that is easy to relate to – a strong, friendly persona that is synonymous with popular culture, and has made him a favourite with the South African media.

Some of his most popular one-man shows include Home Groan, inviting the audience on a wildly funny journey into the deepest reaches of his warped mind, while Spiders & Mayonnaise exposes the lighter side of being South African (pre & post 1994) and his sense of the ridiculous has everyone in the audience laughing at their everyday fears and pet hates.

Kurt Schoonraad – Corporate Comedian has also pioneered Cape Town Comedy Club at the V&A Waterfront, a popular and ground-breaking weekly showcase that is truly benefiting Cape Town culture and the comedy industry as a whole. Cape Town Comedy Club was voted into the Top 10 Comedy Clubs in the world
