Opportunity for Female Sitcom Writers, Barry Hilton is in Town, Auditions and More

Call for Female Sitcom Writers

A local production company is looking to build a creative team for a female driven sitcom for a major broadcaster. At present they are looking for an all female team, with more roles to follow.

They are looking for a Headwriter and team of Writers to work with the Creator of the concept to produce a South African first...a quality sitcom of international standard with a strong, empowering female lead.

They are looking for young up and coming talent, as well as established talent. Any culture any background as long as you are a strong writer with an open mind to your creative process.

As the main character is a 'rapidly approaching 30, modern black woman' they need people who can relate to a local girl with an international outlook.

Email for more info and include a CV and a short paragraph that our young single, independent yet hapless character may post as her description on a dating website.

A Father’s Day filled with laughter

Two hilarious Barry Hilton shows will ensure an abundance of laughter this Father’s Day, Sunday June 15, in Durban and Pietermaritzburg.
The ever-popular comedian, who was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award last year, will be performing at the Gateway Barnyard in Durban and the Golden Horse Casino in Pietermaritzburg before he jets off for shows in London. Barry’s busy international concert schedule also includes kick starting the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival in September and shows in Australia and New Zealand later the same month.
With a career spanning a phenomenal 30 years and a fan base that spans continents, Barry appeals to people of all ages. Often referred to as the ‘King of Clean Comedy’, he steers clear of swearing, profanity and crude content, making him a firm favourite South African performer.
Barry’s new show, The Way I See It, gives you a peek inside the goings on in his quirky head. His hilarious facial expressions and exaggerated physical movements are so funny that he often doesn’t need to say a word to get the audience laughing.
Tickets for the Durban show that starts at 2pm at the Barnyard are available from and for the Pietermaritzburg show, to be held at the Golden Horse Casino, from


The play, ‘The the B.E.E Sting’ celebrates twenty years of democracy and centers on a cross-cultural relationship between an Indian female and a Black male.
