The Comedy Show

He has a wild wacky energy.  He looks like he’s the rep for red bull. It’s nice to see somebody that breaks the boundaries and is not scared to go forward.  We all have our own genres and hopefully our genres make us different and that is one of the reasons that John is so special. He is so fast and so up to date. It is nice to see a young man who still has the same energy he started with 10 or so years ago and this makes him always a pleasure to watch. He is proud that he is South African and that shows that we have world class acts in this country.” Barry Hilton praising John Vlismas

“Whether it’s on a rock stage in front of thousands, or entertaining a small audience in The Underground, Don Packett is more than comfortable on stage.

From turning current affairs into comedy (SA government unfortunately does that by itself) to why Afrikaans people should be attacked by sharks, he makes sure his audience is entertained from when he walks onto stage until he’s dragged off.

A likeable enough guy, Don MCs and speaks at events, breaks bones doing extreme downhill sports, and you can catch him on the SA comedy circuit. He thinks he’s funny. And that’s all that matters.” Don Packett praising Don Packett.

For our adventurous guests, Cape Xtreme Adventure Tours have sponsored an auction prize package including a sandboarding trip at Atlantis sand dunes for two people.

27 – 29 April

WTF! Social Media has gone main stream. What does this mean? At WTF Media Conf we will explore social media, mobile media and cloud computing – the three big trends for 2010. According to Jesse Schell, “Facebook, a social networking site, is big, strange and terrifying or rather unexpected.” (BTW, Facebook had more hits than Google for the second week in March, 2010.)

Online or Mobile, Social Media is changing the way we live, work today and will continue to do so in the future. If you want to know more about what’s coming and how to use it, then you are in the right place. WTF Media Conf will focus on knowledge and application (case studies) and of course, life would not be complete without the crystal ball, a couple of predictions.

The conference, organised by CPUT (Cape Peninsula University of Technology), comprises two components: Boot Camp and WTF Media Conf. Boot Camp is a mixture of knowledge, skills development and practice for the novice or beginner.
