More About Lord of the Flings
Guaranteed to have audiences laughing themselves to tears, comedian Andrew Simpson spoofs everyone’s favourite and most hated characters from movies like the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Matrix and Twilight. An unofficial parody, Lord of the Flings combines the story lines of your favourite fantasy movies, with a fresh local twist centering on the current political and social stories making news in South Africa.
Featuring some local favourites – or not so favourites – like Jacob Zuma, Julius Malema, Helen Zille, Mamphele Ramphele, Robert Mugabe and Steve Hofmeyr, the show focuses on a young wizard, forced to live in Benoni, before a powerful wizard shows up and tells him that’s he the chosen one, destined to save South Africa from corruption by destroying the one ring and facing down the evil Darth Zuma.
A powerful, thought-provoking, hilarious and proudly South African show, Lord of the Flings promises an evening of laughs for audiences of all leanings.
