An award-winning comedian, John Vlismas is one of South Africa’s most creative, prolific and well-known international comics.
Outspoken and sometimes controversial, Vlismas is a firm favourite on the SA comedy scene and a household name to boot!
Some of his successful (and usually sold-out!) one-man comedy shows and tours have included POW (2009), Lucky Plebian (2008), the award-winning Gay, and Black & Immortal (2007), Whacked (2001), Grinder (a twohander with Bevan Cullinan, 2001), Aggravated Assault (1999), Man in Black (1998), and Mr Ballistic (1997).
He produced and headlined Have a Heart (HAH) in aid of Child Welfare Johannesburg in 2006, while in 2002, he hosted and co-produced the largest ever stand-up comedy event seen in South Africa, Laugh Out Loud, which played to 7000 people.
Other performance highlights include being support act in Steven Wright’s South African tour, and performing for SA Tourism at the Sydney Art Museum in 2004. John also produced the South African leg of Henry Rollin’s world tours in 2007/8 and 2010.
