BANKSRUPT! Comedy that’s just common cents.

BANKS’s unique eye on all that is happening in and around South Africa has always made him a firm favourite on theatre and comedy circuits. BANKSRUPT! takes a side-splitting look at just how bankrupt we really are! Not just from a financial aspect but bankrupt morally, politically, internationally, psychologically and socially.

Comics Choice Awards Lifetime Achiever Recipient MARK BANKS blazes back to the theatre stage in his hilarious, up-to the minute, critically acclaimed revue BANKSRUPT!

We meet characters and situations from everyday life in South Africa. From classically trained car guards to the Jewish Women’s Guild of Yemen performing extracts from The Beginner’s Guide to Protesting. From the world’s first news reader mugging, to how to raise and train your very own Member of Parliament.

Mixing up-to-the-minute stand-up with BANKS’s zany characters, video, visual effects and comedy sketches, BANKSRUPT! delivers a quick-fire laugh-a-minute rip-roaring one man show from a seasoned comedy legend who is at the top of his game.

“With a lifetime of comedy under his belt BANKSRUPT! promises to be an hilarious evening’s entertainment with something to touch everybody’s funny bone (hummeratus pantatis)!” – Rob Graves, The Bone Digger Gazette.
