It's probably more than 10 years ago when I first saw Chris Forrest perform live on stage. It was at the ICC in Durban at an International Comedy Festival. I still remember him coming on stage in a suit and those round rimmed glasses and introducing himself in this monotonous, Savannah Dry voice, "Hi My Name is Chris"
Someone in the audience instantaneously screamed something (which I won't repeat for our younger readers) to which Chris casually commented in that same flat voice, "Doos". The crowd was hysterical and that set the ball rolling for non-stop laughter throughout the rest of his act.
In recent years as Chris has started a family with his wife and two young kids, his act has changed and so has the events that he has been performing at or asked to host. In the last few months I've probably bumped into him at least 3 times at baby/toddler events. The last one being at the Mama Magic Baby Expo in Johannesburg.
Chris was there to promote his new one man show, "Who's Your Daddy?" The stand-up comedy act is about a clueless dad's journey to fatherhood, from pregnancy to raising an infant and a toddler, and everything in between. A must see for any parent, or parent to be.
