They say life begins at 30. In the case of Marc Lottering, it was his comedic life that came to life. And he's making South Africa laugh for over twenty decades with the many hats he wears.
He's the son of a preacher in the Cape community of Retreat. He and his brother found their place on the church stage, singing and playing the piano, from an early age. From here, he moved to drama classes at school and working at the Baxter theatre, and it was not long before the performance bug bit. A taste of the lights, curtain calls and thunderous applause led him to his other "home".
Marc endeared himself to the hearts of audiences around the country with his colourful, honest and funny depictions of every day people. His one-man shows poke fun at the stereotypes we grow up hearing. But his hilarious takes on characters like aunty Merle, Colleen 'the cashier' and Shmiley 'the taxi driver', amongst others leaves the crowd in stitches! These are characters we all know too well and recognise in our every day. His uncanny ability to keep us cracking at situations sometimes close to him make him one of SA's favourite acts.
Every one has a story to tell. And as long as he's got his eye on them, we can be sure we'll be laughing along for decades more!
