HQ #ComedyNight Competition


Knock, knock. Who’s there? Headquarters (HQ) comedy night round 4! Wednesday 17 July 2013 the sophisticated urban hotspot will host a night of good food, good spirits and plenty of giggles. The elegant steakhouse-come-bar have made no bones about the fact they offer the best steak experience in town; and now they’ve added tickling your funny bone to their list of accomplishments.

The night will be hosted by premier comedian, Martin Davis, and he’ll be accompanied by headliner Siv Ngesi and middle man Schalk Bezuidenhout. Often you will find Martin Davis billed as a UK comic, which implies he is only an occasional visitor to South Africa. He is however a regular here. He is a highly accomplished comedian on both sides of the world, and South Africa can consider itself lucky to have someone of his caliber appearing on our stages as regularly as he does.

When it comes to his set, it is not really the jokes that make it special, it’s the way he conducts the crowd to his crazy, highly energetic and slightly manic tune. His heavy cockney accent only enhances his wicked wit and his way with people. When one hears the one-liners he comes up with to dismiss a heckler or an errant waiter who wonders through his stage. In the end it’s his absolutely unique way with a crowd, combined with his wicked wit and razor sharp ability to understand and handle people that makes his set.

The entertainment will take place in the bar area; think exposed heritage brick walls, moody lighting, and leather seating. Cocktails, wine and premium spirits will be on offer, paired with new and delicious tapas from the bar menu. Just picture the scene: outside it’s wintery cold, while inside you’re snug in Cape Town’s iconic Heritage Square, smashing red wine and delectable bar snacks. The word on the street is that this comedy night will also be accompanied by a set three course meal and Grants Whisky tasting, taking place before the giggles.

If you really want to make a night out of it —book a table for dinner beforehand and try HQ’s award winning sirloin steak that comes served simply with their signature Café de Paris butter, and thinly cut fries, with a classic salad to start. The three-course meal and pairing is valued at R200.

The dinner will commence at 7pm followed by the comedy show at 8:30pm. HQ has just given us a reason to love winter. Call 021 424 6373 to make a reservation.

    A guy is trying to relax at home, but his wife keeps nagging him to mow the lawn. Finally, in between nags he blurts out, “Answer just this one question for me.”

    She pauses momentarily, and he takes this opportunity to say, “You know, a Deer, a Cow, and a Horse, all eat grass. But a Deer’s excretions are pellets, while a Cow makes flat pies, and a Horse makes clumps…why is that?”

    His wife says, “I don’t know.”
    He replies, “Well then, how can you bring up the subject of the lawn, when it’s obvious you don’t know sh*t?”

    On his Birthday, a man named Peter was really upset because none of his family members or near and dear ones wished him. As he walked into his office, his secretary Anna said, “Good Morning Boss, and by the way Happy Birthday!” He felt a bit better knowing that at least someone remembered. In the lunch time Anna knocked on his door and said, “You know, it’s such a beautiful day outside, and it’s your Birthday, why don’t we go out for lunch, just you and me.” Peter happily agreed They had their lunch but on the way back to the office, Anna said, “You know, it’s such a beautiful day… We don’t have to go right back to the office, do we?” Peter replied “I suppose not. What do you have in mind?” She said, “Let’s go to my apartment, it’s just around the corner.” After arriving at her apartment, Anna said, “Boss if you don’t mind, I’m going to step into the bedroom for just a moment. I’ll be right back.” “Ok.” He nervously replied. She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes; she came out carrying a huge birthday cake… Followed by his wife, his kids, and dozens of his friends, and co-workers, all singing “Happy Birthday”. And Peter just sat there… On the couch… Naked!

    A mother was teaching his child about the side-effects of alcohol. She gets two short glasses, filling one with water and the other with whiskey. She says “I want you to see this.” She puts a worm in the water, and it swims around. She puts a worm in the whiskey, and the worm dies immediately. She then says, feeling that she has made her point clear, “what do you have to say about this experiment?” The child responds by saying: “If I drink whiskey, I won’t get worms!”

    A guy walks into a bar looking frustrated. The bartender asks, “What’s the matter?”

    The guy replies, “Well I’ve got these two horses and I can’t tell them apart. I don’t know if I’m mixing up riding times or even feeding them the right foods.”

    The bartender suggests, “Why don’t you try shaving the tail of one of the horses?”

    The guy says, “That sounds like a good idea, I think I’ll try it.”

    A few months later, he returns to the bar in worse condition. “I shaved the tail of one of the horses, but it grew back and I can’t tell them apart again!”

    The bartender says, “Why don’t you try shaving the mane?”

    A few months later the guy is back. “I shaved the mane of one of the horses, but it grew back!”

    The bartender yells, “Just measure the damn horses. Perhaps one is slightly taller that the other one!” The guy storms out of the bar.

    The next day, the guy runs into the bar. “It worked, it worked!” he exclaims. “I measured the horses, and the black one is two inches taller than the white one!”

    One weekend, the husband is in the bathroom shaving when the kid he hired to mow his lawn, a local kid named Bubba, comes in to pee. The husband slyly looks over and is shocked at how immensely endowed Bubba is. He can’t help himself, and asks Bubba what his secret is.
    “Well,” says Bubba, “every night before I climb into bed with a girl, I whack my penis on the bedpost three times. It works, and it sure impresses the girls!”
    The husband was excited at this easy suggestion and decided to try it that very night. So before climbing into bed with his wife, he took out his penis and whacked it three times on the bedpost. His wife, half-asleep, said, “Bubba? Is that you?”

    Confused, the bartender says no.

    Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other man pulls out his cell phone and calls emergency services. He gasps to the operator, “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator in a calm, soothing voice replies, “Take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

    Back on the phone, the hunter says, “OK, now what?”

    He rushes downstairs to grab the phone, but just as he’s dialing, his four-year-old son comes up and says, “Daddy! Daddy! Uncle Ted’s hiding in your closet, and he’s got no clothes on!”

    He slams the phone down and storms upstairs into the bedroom, past his screaming wife. He rips open the closet door. Sure enough, there is his brother, totally naked, cowering on the floor.

    “No, Mom, down underneath.”

    His mother blushed and said, “Oh, that’s nothing.”

    The father returned, and the mother went off to get a soda. As soon as she left, the boy repeated his question.

    The father took a good look and explained, “That’s the elephant’s penis.”

    The next day, she needed to get chicken breasts. Again, she didn’t know how to say, and so unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her breast. The lady got what she wanted.

    n Pa loop verby sy seun se kamer en tot sy verbasing sien hy die bed is netjies opgemaak. Hy sien n koevert op die kussing, gerig aan “PA”.
    Liewe Pa
    dis met groot verdriet dat ek hierdie brief skryf Ekt weggeloop saam met my meisie Lisa, omdat ek nie met jou en ma wou rusie maak nie. Ek en Lisa het ware passie ontdek, sys so oulik. Ek weet julle keur haar nie goed, omdat daar so… baie ringe deur… haar lippe, neus en baie ander plekker is. En sy is n volle 5jr ouer as ek. Maar is nie net verliefgeit nie, pa sy is swanger. Ons wil sommer nog baie kinders he. Lisa se ons sal baie gelukkig wees. Sy het n woonwa wat iewers in ‘n bos staan en daar is n hele hoop vuurmaakhout vir die winter. Lisa het my ook geleer dat dagga nie net sleg is nie. Ons gaan sommer self n bietjie daarvan in die bos kweek en dit aan die ander mense verkoop. Dan kan ons met daardie geld duurder drugs koop.
    Intussen hoop en bid ons dat die wetenskap n kuur vir vigs vind sodat Lisa gesond kan raak. Moenie bekommerd wees nie pa eks darem al 15 en kan na myself kyk. Ontspan en geniet die kleinkinders wat nog kom. Liefde jou seun Pieter. PS PA NIKS HIERVAN IS WAAR NIE EK IS BY JANNIE, WOU NET VIR PA HERINNER DAAR IS BAIE ERGER DINGE AS N SWAK RAPPORT (dis onder my kussing), laat weet maar as dit veilig is om huis toe te kom!
