INTRODUCING Justin-Ray Stoffels

Justin-ray Stoffles

“I was first introduced to Justin-Ray by my friends at the Cape Town Comedy Club. Looking beyond his performance, the way he was received by the audience was absolutely mind-blowing, and I decided then and there that this young man needed to be on the Big Stage!” – Eddy Cassar, producer of the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival, delivered by Turkish Airlines.

Justin-Ray Stoffels has been on the comedy scene for just four years, but this new kid on the block is destined for greatness.

Born and raised in the sleepy hollow of Greyton, Justin-Ray moved to Cape Town after finishing high school, where he is making waves on the local comedy circuit.

Inspired by greats like Chris Rock, Eddy Murphy, Louis CK and Richard Pryor, his energetic performances include stories about his countryside upbringing, his relationships, cultural observations and side-splitting analysis on South African and International topics.

Some of the highlights of this fresh talent’s career include opening for Nic Rabinowitz, as well as placing in the top 5 in the 2015 Comedy Central Grab A Mic Competition.

A regular at the Cape Town Comedy Club, he has also performed in Johannesburg at Lyric Theatre Gold Reef City.

Justin-Ray says he finds comedy the ideal way to express himself creatively and to serve people through the power of laughter.

His favourite performances to date include his gigs in Mitchell’s Plain and at the Cape Town Comedy Club where he delivered his first few successful sets.

Don’t miss out on Justin-Ray Stoffels’ very first appearance at the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival, delivered by Turkish Airlines, between 11 and 23 July 2016. Only at the Baxter Theatre.
