Marc Lottering’s new show to light up kykNET&kie in March

Whether he’s behind the microphone doing stand-up or as Aunty Merle in one of his musicals, Marc Lottering always has audiences roaring with laughter.

In 2023, his latest stand-up comedy show, So I Wrote That Musical, made its debut in Cape Town. It was also seen in Johannesburg and Durban and then returned to Cape Town for another run, and with each packed show, the audiences wanted more.

The good news for anyone who missed it, is that So I Wrote That Musical was recorded, and you can take a front-row seat in your own living room when kykNET&kie becomes the first to broadcast the hit show on 31 March at 20:00.

“I’m very happy to be back in people’s homes,” says Marc. “It’s been too long.”

In So I Wrote That Musical Marc reflects on the challenges of moving between the worlds of stand-up comedy and musical theatre. And as is to be expected, he weaves in his sharp satirical views on the madness of contemporary South African life.

“He takes you to dark places but switches a light on for you. Or he leaves the porch light on in case you are feeling lost,” Laetitia Pople, arts and entertainment editor of Netwerk 24, wrote in her review.

Other critics also raved about Marc’s new show.

“But the thrill of Lottering that makes him not just a crowd pleaser, but the kind of entertainment magnet that has otherwise respectable looking audience members, shrieking with such unabated laughter that they have to reapply their lipstick during the show, is that he’s developed his shtick to complete perfection,” wrote Robyn Sassen on The View.

“I love Marc Lottering. I love him so much. I would watch him read the classifieds, and I would laugh. And his new show is just the cutest, funniest, whackiest, most charming hour and a half of the best kind of laughing there is,” said Megan Choritz on Weekend Special.

“So I Wrote That Musical is a master class in long-form stand-up/observational comedy,” was the verdict of Robyn Cohen (The Cape Robyn).

“Trying to direct Marc is always a hair-raising experience,” says Anwar McKay, director of So I Wrote That Musical. “But I think we managed to come up with something fabulous.  Enjoy!”

So I Wrote That Musical is 80 minutes long. It will air on 31 March at 20:00 on kykNET&kie (DStv channel 145).
