Comedian and actor Schalk Bezuidenhout, also known as “Jersey Boy”, returns to the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival stage for two weeks only, from Monday June 5 to Saturday June 17.

Born and bred in Kempton Park, Schalk studied drama at the University of Cape Town. While studying, Schalk slowly began to realise that “there was so much more to life than boerewors and rugby”, and started doing stand-up comedy in April 2011.
