When local comedian and businessman, Jem Atkins, started performing comedy in 2009, he worked the Durban comedy scene as hard as he could for those first 12 months, taking every slot he could find, even for no pay. That first year he did 6 gigs. 6 gigs!! In a year!!So what did he do? He started On Fire Comedy – a ‘Proudly Durban’ company dedicated to promoting comedians and building the almost non-existent comedy scene in good ‘ol sleepy, laid-back Durbs.
