Carl Weber

All the way from Bloemfontein this self-confessed “farm boy” has been honing he’s comedic skills on the Cape Town comedy circuit since 2010. Carl’s comedy revolves around growing up in the Free State but undoubtedly his “what if” movie and soapie scenarios.

While still new to the comedy scene, Carl has performed at the annual Rocking the Daisies Festival, the 2010 Kite Festival as well as 2011 Navy Festival. In 2011 he won both Phat Joe’s Cape Town’s Next Comic sponsored by Heart FM, as well as the Graca Comedy Showdown, which also won him a spot in the coveted Nando’s Comedy Festival, where he shared a stage with international comics like Greg Behrendt (best-selling author of “he’s just not that into you”) and the internationally acclaimed comic Pablo Francisco.

Carl then took the leap into theatre and completed a 4 night run as part of Stuart Taylor’s Intimate Comedy Sessions at On Broadway. After which he was chosen to open to 1500 people for Loyiso Gola’s one man show “Life & Times”. Carl has since worked his way into hosting and headlining comedy nights at all the big club gigs in Cape Town, becoming one of Cape Town’s most entertaining hosts.

In 2012, he made his TV debut on Comedy Central, which was extremely well received.

Comedy Central Review:

“Carl Weber is bald, confident and owns the stage.  Coming in as the second act in the show, he had had the luxury of Klaas’ energized performance to rev up the crowd. But he would not have needed it anyway. Born and raised in Bloemfontein, the Vin Diesel lookalike (well for the sake of a joke at least) speaks excitedly about the differences between Bloem and his new home Cape Town. He can switch seamlessly between his impersonations and spends a lot of time breaking down what is wrong with the world of TV and films. Rolling your eyes? Not at all. The broad theme might be staid, but Weber gives it a fresh klap and beats it into something original.”

Carl has also been chosen to open for Riaad Moosa at the Baxter Theatre, for his latest one man show ‘WHATS NEXT”, Carl is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the South African Comedy Industry. Humble to his Bloem-boykie roots, Carl promises to tickle your funny bone till it hurts and then tickle some more.
