The show will be on at the Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace on the 22nd and 23rd of July 2016.

Jones recently visited South Africa to participate in filming "Madiba", a six-part US miniseries based on the life and times of Nelson Mandela, in which he stars as Oliver Tambo.  "It was one of the greatest experiences of my life," reveals Jones.  The miniseries, which also stars Laurence Fishburne as Mandela, will air in 2017.

During his trip, Jones was also a guest judge, alongside "sushi King" Kenny Kunene, at the first Comedy Central Roast Battle, shot at Parker's Comedy & Jive in May, which saw some of the best local comedians sparring in a hilarious show-down.  

Jones was so impressed with the standard of the local SA comedians he saw at the battle, that he invited local comedians Dillan Oliphant and Simmi Areff to join him on stage.
