After some thought I have come to the conclusion that I was perhaps being a tad unfair to the cat people out there when I stated in my previous post … Continue reading
Iain EWOK Robinson special guest Mon2nd
Iain EWOK Robinson [a.k.a. Creamy Ewok Baggends a.k.a. Hused Whut a.k.a. Cremosa a.k.a. CremDeLa a.k.a. Creamy a.k.a. Call-me-what-you-like-and-will-tell-you-if-I-don’t-like-what-you-call-me] gets stoked on flames. He likes matches, especially Bok matches, but he’s more used to matches what can light metaphorical fires, coz one-two metaphors are strong as three similies and he lights a Mic like a match (1) like a coal (2) like a Bic (3), in fact when it comes to sound systems and stages his heart’s part spark (meta4). Dude likes words, plain down straight-up, and he makes it his business to get you liking words for their worth in poetry, in praise and in the slightly cynical but mainly motivational things he says. Cats a rapper, like a condom rapper even, providing the world with protection from dick-heads. Sometimes he raps with a beat, sometimes he beats with a rap. His parents used to tell him he had verbal diarrhea which was his first experience of a truthful metaphor. He still talks crap, but it’s serious crap, and serious crapping is all about a balance between sustained strain and the relief of release, just like life. There, you can have that one for free. You can have more of that here www.reverbnation.com/creamyewokbaggends and here www.soundcloud.com/creamy-ewok-baggends and here www.myspace.com/creamyewokbaggends and at Pants On Fire. Fire? Excellent. This brief bio was in no way inspired by the jealousy caused by all of the kiff attention that that Elephant Shrew freak was getting for his bio on the Pants On Fire blog. Not at all. When approached for an opinion on that particular piece Creamy Ewok Baggends offered the following statement for immediate release: “I’m a shrewd elephant / kinda clever kinda phat / I sock a puppet like punch Postman Pat.” All of this was communicated while firmly clutching the crotch of his oversized pants thus demonstrating both his incredible intertextuality as a performer and his firm grip on…reality.
Warren Robertson headline act Fri6th
A nominee in the Breakthrough category of the Comic’s Choice Awards in 2011, Warren Robertson has since firmly established himself on the SA comedy scene; headlining across the country in theatres, festivals and clubs, as well as regularly MCing large corporate functions and golf days. Such is the growth in his following that he is now pleased to announce that at least 10% of the people who recognise him in shopping malls refer to him by name instead of saying, “Hey you’re that comedian guy”.
The Godfather of SA Stand up comedy Mel Miller has described him as being, “Probably the smartest, funniest young comedian in the country today”.
His growing legion of supporters, who follow him on both Twitter (where he is @warrenrcomedian) and on his blog www.indiecomedy.blogspot.com, has lead to demand for his first one man show Spamily, which will debut at the Grahamstown Arts Fest in June 2012.
He continues to like “photographs of babies dressed like flowers”, “feigning an interest in the literature of Proust” and “referring to himself in the third person”, but has gone right off, “long-lazy Sundays spent riling up Steve Hofmeyr on Twitter”.
