[interview] We Chat to Funny Man, Joey Rasdien, Ahead of Park Acoustics this Weekend

MA: Do you mind starting with a quick 101 on who Joey Rasdien the comedian is?

I am a human being. Phylum Mamalia. Who happens to do comedy. Something I love.

MA: Where in SA are you from?

Johannesburg

MA: Have you always been a “funny guy” growing up, or was comedy something you worked/ practiced hard at before stepping up on stage?

I wish I recorded myself since birth. That would have answered this question perfectly.

MA: Can you describe the first time you ever stood up on stage to do a comedy show? Were you funny? 😉

What I think and what others think of me are two different things. So I don’t know whether I was funny or not. It was at a place called the Underground in Melville hosted by John Vlismas. My first time.

MA: What are your thoughts of our local comedy scene at the moment?

Absolutely Brilliant. It’s not a scene. It’s an viable industry.

MA: Any comedians/venues that you think need a special mention?

The Underground. It’s closed now but that’s where the industry basically started.
