Mr & Mrs Normal in East London

Mr & Mrs Normal

Catch Aaron & Lisa in their hot new comedy!

Aaron McIlroy & Lisa Bobbert get set to wow East London with their hit comedy -Mr & Mrs Normal!

Great news for theatregoers in East London and vicinity! Perennial favourites Aaron McIlroy and Lisa Bobbert of MacBob Productions are due to take The Guild Theatre by storm with a lightening tour of their latest comedy hit – Mr & Mrs Normal. This hot property show has just three performances between 30 April and 2 May. So don’t delay! Book now at Computicket to avoid disappointment!

Billed as an ‘all-you-can-eat comedy buffet’, Mr & Mrs Normal is a zany musical smorgasbord that caters for all theatrical tastes. You’ll get to revel in some sizzling new characters, as they rub shoulders with those old favourites, you’d feel cheated to miss. Interspersed with show stopping musical hits, this laugh-out-loud comedy is directed and choreographed by theatre whizz Daisy Spencer. It comes hot-on-the-heels of Bulletproof – MacBob’s hilarious, ovation-award winning production that wowed the National Arts festival in Makhanda last year.

You’d best hold onto your seats, as Bobbert and McIlroy plunge right into the vortex of funny as Charmaine and Belinda, opening the show in a pair of ‘gym bunnies’ where just the sight of Aaron with a cup size to challenge Lisa’s will have you rolling in the isles before they even utter a word. Die-hard MacBob fans will know they’re in for a treat, as the evening unfurls. Bobbert’s inimitable take of a car guard carolling away at ‘I dreamed…’ never fails to send her fans into orbit, while she impresses connoisseurs with her nuanced vocal prowess.

Reviewing the debut season of Mr & Mrs Normal in Durban last December, ArtsSmart critic Romi Schumann cherry picked some of the stand-out moments, such as: ‘The old couple singing clever lyrics to well-played acoustic guitar… the Mexicans – Ricky and Martin, and VeeJay in his green tracksuit all give sound advice on how to survive in our current world while giving our laughter muscles a terrific workout… ‘Watch out for VeeJay,’ Schumann cautioned. ‘His quick brain and sharp tongue will take you out at the knees if you do not rise to the occasion and give as much as you would like to get.’

As ever, Mr & Mrs Normal sees MacBob’s comedy stars taking their audience on a joyride to a land of funny all their own, that has become their byword in the annals of South African Big League Comedy. Seamlessly switching identities, their lightning-swift costume, make-up and wig changes keep the audience guessing who’s about to appear next and from where. Aaron and Lisa’s side-splitting antics are interspersed with musical hits that include Work Bitch; Hound Dog; Wonder of You’ Those were the Days; Mother Tongue; She Bangs; Party People Song; I’m Addicted; Dream a Dream; and Venga Party Bus Medley.

Mr & Mrs Normal is just what we need to keep our theatre scene alive and kicking. Tickets are R180 (R160 for pensioners, students & block bookings of 10 or more). The show is in two acts, duration 100 minutes including interval. To book telephonically call 0861 915 8000.
