John Vlismas


I think great comedy lives next door to horror.” – John Vlismas

John Vlismas is sometimes described as an “observational” comedian, which is kind of like calling someone who throws a bottle through their television a “viewer.” Known for controlled-burst attacks on cultural and political icons, as well as masterful crowd work, Vlismas is one of the most recognizable faces in South African comedy (and not just because of his outlandish hair). He has performed at prestigious venues around the world, appeared in numerous films, TV shows and radio programs, and in 2012 he hosted the first ever “Comedy Central Presents…Live at Parker’s” show. He also recently performed 40, the “most technically complex” show of his career, to commemorate his 40th birthday.
