Piet Potgieter is a new breed of Comedian that has exploded onto the Cape Town comedy scene, being able to deliver content in both Afrikaans and English fluently.
Piet’s Comedy career started in 2007 when upon enquiring about where to go watch live shows, he agreed to try a 5 min open Mic set, besides, how hard could it be??
Well 10 years and over 200 performances later he still hasn’t figured out that most patrons are laughing AT him as opposed to WITH him.
His affable personality has gained him a loyal following all over South Africa...
He is one of the premier Afrikaans stand-ups in the country causing laughter and mayhem as far as he goes.
The crowning achievement though has to be that he has been selected to be a Full festival performer at the 2012 Vodacom Funny Festival at the Baxter in Cape Town
Having learnt from the best in the business as a recurring headline act at the famous Cape Town Comedy Club”, Zula, the Stage etc he is sure to spice up any line up, not to mention three successful one man shows.
A critic described his show best with the following:
“Going to Piet’s show is like going to a braai with the guy and just listening to him talk crap all night”
Piet Potgieter is a likeable, smart, sexy comic, with razor sharp observations and a body to back his mouth up. His style is fun, relaxed and non-confrontational.
Never one to settle and sit still, a new evolution is in progress, 25 Years in the making as an entrepreneur, farmer, chef, business manager and IT specialist not to mention over 10 years as a comedian, being too old to start a career as a professional pole dance he decided to enrol for an Masters degree in business, the dreaded MBA.
“Through the course of my studies, I realised this was all common sense, except stats, that's sorcery.
My mission is to combine the love for comedy and business in such a way that it actually makes sense, and hopefully, I will figure it out myself along the way. Business of Common Sense is born. Difficult theory laid bare in its most simple form, common sense!
Comedy is not only about being silly and business is not only about being serious, lets have some fun doing both.
I will continue to grow and develop my stand-up but now I can also offer tailor made Business Content delivered in a fun witty and most of all educated way.”
