For most of us the thought of standing on a stage and making people laugh isn’t very funny at all. But for this weeks guests, Joey Rasdien and Richelieu Beaunoir this IS life!
Gauteng local Joey Rasdien had for more serious plans for his life, with a B Comm degree from RAU and a career as a financial advisor at Alexander Forbes. In 2002 his wife encouraged him to give comedy a go and he’s been making South Africans laugh ever since, on stage, in commercials and in movies.
Richelieu Beaunoir grew up entertaining his family telling jokes now he’s writing his own and entertaining the country! The Durbanite’s first professional gig was in Johannesburg in 2010, a city he now calls home. Nominated for a Comedy Choice Award in the Audience Choice Category, his comedy clearly resonates with audiences.

ELMA SMIT COMES OUT ON TOP IN THE BATTLE OF THE SUPERSPORT PRESENTERS
Good friends off screen remained good friends on track when Elma Smit and Julia Stuart went head to head in Speed Stars. For the Supersport presenters it was less about who won and more about seeing girl power at the top of the leaderboard.
There really wasn’t much to choose between the two of them over the two-lap race, Elma’s combined time of 3:13.34 narrowly beating Julia’s time of 3:14.05 and seeing here winning the matchup. But its their fastest lap time that goes up on the leaderboard, and here Elma extended her dominance with a 1:32.95 versus a 1:34.19 posted by Julia.
Sadly, they both fell well short of the top of the leaderboard – Rob Forbes’ time set in Episode One remains the time to beat. The leaderboard as it currently stands after two episodes:
And don’t forget that our two public contestants, Jason Absmeier and Louis Pires have already posted their lap times, but we will only be revealing these at the end of the season – what impact will that have on our top eight who’ll contest the final!
Congratulations to our winner of our Predict the Winner Competition: Claudio Raposa correctly predicted that Elma Smit would win this match up and won a R3000 tyre voucher from Goodyear.
