Fresh off the release of his Netflix Special, Schalk Bezuidenhout brings his brandnew show Feeling Good to Dubai for the first time.
One of South Africa’s most exciting talents is debuting in Dubai. He’s strong, funny and has a thick moustache. When we say ‘strong’ we mean mentally. Physically he has the body of a very tall grade 5. Schalk had, like all of us, a lot of free time during the lockdown. And what did he do with all this free time? He wrote a show. A very, very funny show. Come join Schalk for an evening of comedy. This might be his funniest show yet. Because, more than ever, he is Feeling Good.
Two-time SA Comic’s Choice Award winner. As seen on Netflix & Comedy Central.
‘Fast-rising talent’ -The Guardian
