The BIG Boys (Full Festival)

Big Boys

We sat down with Ash Searle, from The Big Boys, and here’s what he had to say…

I have always been involved in performing arts, and have danced from the age of 8. The year I left school I was cast in FAME the musical. From that moment I got sucked into the theatre world, and have performed in many stage musicals including African Footprint, Chicago, We will rock you, Buddy Holly, and more.

After a while the touring life got too much, and my wife and myself opened FollowSpot Productions. Over the past 7 years we have created many shows, but the crowd favourite is most definitely the BIG BOYS franchise. Brads and I have taken the show to all over SA as well as Australia and the UK, snapping up an OVATION AWARD in GTOWN as well as being the audience choice award in Brighton. We are so excited that the two of us are finally involved in the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival.

Brads and I are both essentially dancers/actors with a unique comedy style, combining the dancing and the dialogue to create two hander comedy dance shows. We love the fact that our shows are accessible to anyone. Not just arty theatregoers. I couldn’t think of anything I’d want to do more!
