Aaron McIlroy’s comedy classic ‘The Loser’ returns!


Great news for theatre goers starved for prime entertainment! Comedy legend Aaron McIlroy returns with one of his all-time signature pieces, The Loser – to East London’s Guild Theatre, for a limited run of just three performances, on 4 and 5 November 2021.


The smash hit Vita Award-winning musical comedy has played countless venues down the years, delighting generations of audiences throughout the country as it draws back the curtain on those interminable motivational speaker sessions we have all had to endure at mind-numbing conferences and seminars.


Jam-packed with high-energy theatrical content, always a hallmark of McIlroy’s shows, The Loser never fails to bring the house down with its side-splitting gallery of Aaron creations. Heading the line-up is the comic’s manic álter ego’, Truscott Price, whose precarious leaps in logic pose formidable challenges to his attempts at sustaining a magnetic public appeal.


Offering audiences welcome respite for their aching abs, McIlroy’s one-man comedy tour-de-force is interspersed with rock ‘n roll hits from the likes of Queen, Peter Gabriel and others, not forgetting the “King of Rock” – Elvis.


Co-written by theatre luminary Sue Monteregge – who famously credited Aaron with “single-handedly transforming theatre into an extreme sport” – this vintage show guarantees unbeatable entertainment. It remains a must-see for anyone in need of a generous dose of laughter. Tickets are R180 per person (R160 for students and pensioners, and block bookings of 10 or more). Book through Computicket on 0861 915 8000 or online at Covid protocols apply.
