Hannes Brummer

Comedian, MC and Actor - Johannesburg
Hannes Brummer


Hannes Brümmer has often been asked if he is hyperactive, but he has never been able to sit still long enough to find out for sure. His comedic style is highly energetic and physical with his tongue virtually bursting through his cheek. He likes to rant honestly about his Afrikaans heritage, the influence of the media on society and the ever raging battle of the sexes. He is at times self-deprecating, but almost always foolishly optimistic.

Since 2005, Hannes has been a member of Joe Parker's Improv Express and subsequently the Starship Improvise. He has also become a regular face in South African stand-up comedy venues over the last five years, performing several headlining spots as well as festivals such as Rocking the Daisies (2009, 2010) and Splashy Fen (2011). He is also one of Die Flying Dutchmen, an Afrikaans Comedy duo with Melt Sieberhagen, who have proved themselves leading exponents of Afrikaans Stand-up. In 2008 and 2009 he was a finalist in the Jozi Comedy Showdown.
