An Evening of Chemody with John Vlismas, Aaron McIlroy and Jem Atkins

An Evening of Chemody with John Vlismas, Aaron McIlroy and Jem Atkins

Durban audiences are set to enjoy a completely unique evening of belly laughter at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on Monday 26 June at 7.30pm as three of our favourite funny men: John Vlismas,  Aaron McIlroy and Jem Atkins,  join forces for an excellent cause, to help contribute towards medical expenses for theatre all-rounder, Themi Venturas.
John Vlismas and Aaron McIlroy have been making people laugh really hard for decades. They are old friends and have something else in common.  Both of them did extensive work early in their careers with the legendary Themi Venturas; recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Joining John and Aaron is another superb local comic, Jem Atkins, who is possibly as talented,  but said to be much better looking than both of them!  What better way for Durban to rally and get Themi the treatment he needs than these three lunatics doing the stand-up comedy that has made them household names, and then answering questions from the audience and recounting stories of their most ridiculous experiences on and off stage.

Many people have no idea how funny it is when performers share horror stories with each other, and now you have the chance to hear it straight from the source. This will be a night to remember, with hilarious comedy and an intimate, honest and meaningful look behind the curtain at what the show looks like from the other side.
John, Aaron and Jem will be doing one night only of this completely one-off show in honour of their friend, and all the money they raise will go to his medical costs.

“We are not spending any money – it’s all going to the medicine,” says John, “there are no posters, no flyers, no frills. I’m very excited to be raising money for drugs than an actual doctor prescribed, it’s a first.”

“That’s true, but we will have jokes,” says Aaron, “and you will get a seat – if you book soon.”

Tickets are R225, and advance booking is possible through Computicket, who are waiving all commission costs to support this cause.  Call 0861 915 8000 or visit www.computicket.com, or buy tickets directly at any Checkers Money Market Counter.  There will also be door sales on the night, subject to availability.
