It was clear from a very young age that performing was more than something fun for this Johannesburg born Cape Townian. From tasting the seduction of the spot light from school musicals and plays, to MC a 35 000 strong 2010 Fifa world cup Coca-Cola fan park crowd in Cape Town, he found himself on the road to being a live performer.
Earning his stripes on both the JHB and CPT underground comedy circuit since 2014, 2017 saw a Savannah New Comers Showcase performance and tv debut for this talented comedian. A witty insightfulness, an almost nostalgic familiarity, is felt by this elegant storytelling navigation, of the stand-up form of the craft of funny.
Despite the grander accolades belonging to the time spent perfecting his craft in the mother city, festivals, theatres, comedy clubs, open parking lots or even the line at the bank, 2017 also saw him as first runner up at Joe Parkers Comic-kazi competition, at Monte Casino. From Joburg to the fringes of Pretoria, a new voice is quickly gaining momentum.
2018 a new dawn broke as a feature role in an independent proudly South African short film, Oorgang (The Crossing), showcases the flexibility of this multi-creative new comer. Coupling the on-stage experience with the instant attraction to wanting to be his friend, Etienne is sure to share his stories for a very long time.
When the driving force behind every performance is the aim to put on a great show, it’s no wonder his impressions, accents and stories have had everyone asking for more.
