Joe Parker

Comedian and MC - Johannesburg
Joe Parker


South African born Comedy legend, Joe Parker, sports a career that spans three decades in the industry. Having worked in London and Melbourne, one of the few comics to have an episode of Dali Tambo's hit talk show "People of the South" devoted to him. His cheeky defiance of all things politically correct combined with provocative, innovative story telling, Joe Parker continues to etch himself on the memories of at least three generations of comedy lovers in our country.

The most popular English-language South African stand-up comedian in the country for over the last 15 years, is probably how we know Joe Parker. Working on all the major comedy venues including the Superbowl at Sun City, he has developed a unique style and presence – able to read the mood of his audiences.

Joe Parker has worked in London and Melbourne and is one of the few comics to have an episode of Dali Tambo's hit talk show "People of the South" devoted to him.

A fine musician to boot, he isnt' shy to pull out his guitar and treat his audience to a few rib-tickling songs. Sharp to the point, Joe is best described and risque but never crude.

Wherever comedy in South Africa crops up as a topic and has become something of a cult on the club circuit, he is talked about. His comedy has always provoked comment – both positive and negative – and not a few times invoked the wrath of the press.

The content of his shows varies from the foibles of sexuality to the behaviour patterns of the people of this land – and lots in between!

Joe has astounded audiences countrywide with his tremendous vocal range – a fabulous, but optional extra to his show! And, should the function require some really top class singing, then look no further!
