Martin Jonas, discovered at South Africa’s first real comedy club, Hysterix in Johannesburg, has impressed audiences with his novel style and pertinent observational humour. Martin Jonas is South African to his fingertips and was one of the few performers to receive a standing ovation at the inaugural Smirnoff Mule comedy Festival at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town in 1997.

Martin Jonas is one of the most sought-after corporate comedians in the business. His brand of comedy can best be described as observational, from where he has been known to explore some surreal territory. His repertoire also includes unique impressions.

Is Martin Jonas funny? You better believe it! But there is a striking depth and intelligence to his dialogue that leaves you feeling that Martin Jonas is destined for big things. Martin Jonas’s brand of comedy can best be described as observational, from where Martin Jonas has been known to wonder off into some very surreal territory.

Martin Jonas has always pursued live entertainment and Stand-Up is the most direct route to connecting with an audience, and a live audience will always let Martin Jonas know when something is really funny. Martin Jonas impersonations of famous people are also a treat. My guess is that if there had been a contest to impersonate ex-President Nelson Mandela, Madiba himself would come second to Martin Jonas.

Martin Jonas’s novel style and insane observations about life in South Africa has comedy fans screaming for more. Delivered in English, Afrikaans, Tswana, Sotho and a smattering of Zulu, Martin Jonas appeals to audiences across the board. As a clever and topical comedian, Martin Jonas’s a firm favourite in the corporate market as both entertainer and as an MC. To liven up a dull crowd, you just can’t do better than the down to earth Martin Jonas.

HIRE MARTIN JONAS









Martin Jonas, discovered at South Africa’s first real comedy club, Hysterix in Johannesburg, has impressed audiences with his novel style and pertinent observational humour. 

GRIFF has wanted to be a comedian since he was three years old where his mother use to set up the seniors in The Convalescent Homes where she worked, in an audience typesetting and let her son make sleeping and comatose old people laugh. So after working the Geriatric Circuit for a couple of summers his destiny was settled. Since then, that little funny boy with the faith of a PLANET has made a name for himself as one of the leading comedians and On-Air Personalities in the Country by headlining across North America (including Canada), New Zealand, The U.K. and Africa.


With his quick wit and unsurpassed knowledge for sports news, “GRIFF” took sports took sports to the ‘next level’ with his comedic twist on athletes and their stories. In 1999 he received Georgia’s Sportcaster of the Year Award and in 2004 “Street Skillz”, a program he provided the color commentary for was nominated for an EMMY.


Ultimately, GRIFF is a Comedian, an On-Air Personality, an Author, an Actor, a Motivational Speaker, a Daddy, an EMMY nominated Sportscaster and a man who puts Jesus Christ ahead of all men all wrapped into one.
