Jack Parow paid his dues to become an “overnight success”.  He started out as Bong Scare, moved on to being General Quick-Draw-McGraw to Muis is Baas before he watched Pirates of the Caribbean and became Jack Parow – Pirate of the Caravan Park.

His first release as Jack Parow was the Bring en Braai EP which he recorded on his home PC, wrote onto a CD, photocopied the album covers at the library and personally dropped off at people’s houses, before Cooler as Ekke catapulted him to success,

Jack Parow released his debut self-titled full-length album in 2010.  It went platinum within a year and his  music video for Cooler as Ekke  was the first Afrikaans music video to strike a million views on YouTube.  His second album, Eksie Ou reached Gold status within four months of its release.

Since his debut release Parow has headlined at all the major festivals in South Africa.  He has performed in Russia, England, Belgium, Hong Kong and the USA and has toured the Netherlands so often, garnering such a massive following that it led to his own biennial festival in Utrecht called PAROWFEST.


Mark Banks is one of the most recognized and respected comedians of his time.

In over 25 years of comedy, Mark boasts at least one new one-man show each year, of which he writes and performs all the material himself. Since his acclaimed inception to comedy, Mark has continuously played to packed houses nationwide. Widely recognized for his political satire and commonplace poke at the rich and famous, nothing and no one is sacred to Mark’s blatant humour.

He says that the reason behind the silliness is that “it’s easier to look at the other side of things that don’t have another side, and if they don’t have one, invent one.”

His constant banter and uncontained one-liners have often lent him undeniable praise as MC for award ceremonies, corporate functions, banquets and conferences whereby he casually digs into all and sundry with his potent brand of Banks humour.
