The 8th Annual Savanna Comics Choice Awards - Celebrating the Comedy Industry throughout Africa. This year, we change lenses again and we dive into one of the most underrated tools in a comedian’s box of tricks - the “Rhythm of Funny.”
What is the Rhythm of funny? It’s the way a comic pauses between the set-up and the punchline, the way a word gets stretched or shortened to make it funnier. How they ride a big laugh and roll their eyes at just the right moment. It’s that beautiful, masterful and totally naturally occurring phenomenon of “ta-dum-dush!” It’s the pure music of comedy.
Music has always been a close friend to the CCA’s, with Fabian Sing’s superb composition and musical direction providing the second strand of the CCA DNA. This year, he’ll collaborate even more closely with the soon-to-be-appointed director, head writer and surprise in-house band to create a world-class demonstration of comedy rhythm in action.
This year will see a fantastic fusion of music and comedy, with a special focus on the delivery of lines by rhythmic masters of stand-up.
