Kurt Schoonraad
Kurt was spotted as a Fresh Face at the October 1999 Smirnoff Comedy Festival, and was immediately whisked to SAMP's Comedy Lab workshops for training. Within a mere six months, he was headlining at the Cape Comedy Club. Kurt describes himself as "Mitchell's Plain, born and fled" and he bases much of his material on recollections of his upbringing. His physical style is reminiscent of a young Barry Hilton, and his comic impression of the Cape Flats man-on-the-street has already made him a legend in clubs such as the Galaxy. He also elicited rave responses at the Oppi Koppi music festival in Pretoria where he headlined the comedy stage.
