Food is terrible
Jan 2020 • Friends
I ordered the chicken wings here. They were the smallest wings I've seen in my entire life. The portion advertises 10 wings. Basically the kitchen staff took 5 wings and cut each of them in 2 to make 10. They were each smaller than my pinky finger. For R95. Total rip-off. Rather eat elsewhere before you enter and watch the comedy acts. The comedians were good.

Horrible food
Dec 2018 • Couples
The chicken wings are absolutely horrible. We ordered mojitos and the bar man used normal sugar instead of castor sugar thus our drinks were bitter as the sugar could not dissolve.

Night out
Oct 2018 • Friends
Joe Parker and all the staff, brilliant night, thank you. The comedians were on fire, each having their own twist on life and having the venue in tears of laughter.
If you want a great night out with the best atmosphere and excellent food & drink menu then come to Parker’s!

Defending the Cavemen by Tim Plewmand
Jun 2018 • Friends
The Defending the Caveman show by Tim Plewman was AMAZING yesterday. Absolutely worth watching. I've seen it years and years ago, and he changed it a little bit to make it more relative to today. Still hilariously funny and so relevant.

The Service at the Parker's Comedy and Jive was very good. We had a really good time.

Good comedy, but don't like the format
Jan 2018 • Couples
The headline act, Jason Goliath, was by far the best act of the night. The MC was also good, but I didn't like the format. Doors open at 18:00. We had dinner elsewhere, so when we arrived at 19:40, there wasn't great seating left. The comedy acts aren't long, but there's an interval after each act. So, by the time the main act came on, it was 22:00, but we'd probably only seen less than an hour's worth of comedy (including the MC). The format should be worked on.

Great night out
Jan 2018 • Couples
Went there on a wednesday eve. Didnt know who was performing. A few locals and two from the UK. The MC was hilarious. Some of the acts werent too great but was still a fun night out. Their cocktails are really nice and give a parkers feel to them...like the parkers pole. The food was pretty good...had a pizza and the chicken curry which was good. Definitely go again...but with more well known acts. Definitely a great vibe to watch a show. Definitely recommend it

Great night out

Parkers is a comedy club with top notch comedians .

If you are looking for a good evening of entertainment then this is the place.

Food is basic pizza amd other fast food items are ok but nothing to write home about and you don't have to eat here. Drinks and cocktail menu is fairly extensive and reasonably priced.

Joe Parker is a legend and is often here overseeing the club. I've never been disappointed in the entertainment put on werher it was a specific show or open mic night.

Started well
Apr 2017 • Couples
Went to Parkers this evening. The compère was good and the first act on stage was brilliant. The next two acts were not as funny, they geared the jokes towards African people which meant we didn't understand some of the humour. Ordered a glass of wine which was fine,then ordered Amarula and was given the smallest amount I have ever seen with a huge block of ice in the glass. Overall a good night and probably would try it a second time.
