‘Sister, Can I Do Your Hair?’ is a one-woman stand-up comedy show by Hildegard Titus.
Catch the comedian quipping wise about her experiences as a woman in today’s world. The title is a repeatable play on the harassment people face should they be brave enough to walk past a cluster of pushy hairstylists.

‘God. Family. Comedy’ is a show by Big Mitch.
This Friday, the comedy just does not stop, with the longtime comedian Mitch Gaoseb delivering a one-man show and gunning for a full house.
