There’s a new virtual special called the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar with which you’ll be able to connect with friends and billed comedians through an online Virtual meeting as venue for the events given the current coronavirus restrictions.
The Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar will consist of two elements – the weekly Bar Nights and bi-weekly Comedy Specials. The weekly Bar Night events, which will be hosted on Zoom, will feature two talented comics and an equally talented host. Comedy Specials will be run every two weeks and will star nine different comics and their host comedic barman. These will be via Instagram Live, Facebook Live and YouTube Live on Savanna’s social media channels and will provide a full 90 minutes of entertainment.
The first Weekly Bar Night will be held tonight, Thursday 9 April at 6pm, and will feature David Kau and Nik Rabinowitz, with Coconut Kelz as host. The first Comedy Special event will start on Saturday 18 April and will star nine of SA’s comedic talents who will be announced soon.
This virtual comedy bar isn’t just for comedic heavy hitters, however. Savanna is also offering aspiring comics a shot at auditioning for their spot on the lineups of these events. Those that are keen and want to be part of the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar can submit a sixty-second audition clip on why they think they should be included in the lineup to firstname.lastname@example.org.
