Alan is currently Defending the Caveman at theatres around the country. He has taken over this legendary one man show which has been running in South Africa for the last 9 years and for more than 1500 shows! Alan has received rave reviews and continues to play to full houses with this hysterical play. He alternates between this show and his own stand up shows and can be seen at various theatres around the country.

In fact, ALAN IS THE ONLY PERFORMER TO HAVE PERFORMED ON EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE FESTIVAL ACROSS THE COUNTRY BETWEEN 1997 AND 2003!
Other recent theatre credits include
De Fledermaus, Loveborg’s Women, Dracula Unclotted!

Alan can currently be seeing on MNET’s comedy hoax show Laugh out Loud where he has a weekly rant in the guise of his alter ego: Johan van der Walt! Alan has also appeared in various TV adverts including FAMSA, Polo Classic, OK Bazaars, Castle Lager and Cadbury’s. He has made cameo appearances on many SA sitcoms and and was one of the friends in the comedy sketch show MARC LOTTERING AND FRIENDS.
Alan also adds his voice to the new SABC animation series URBO as a multiple character voice on many of the episodes.
Alan’s voice can be heard on various radio spots and his speciality is comic character voices and quirky offbeat roles… He has also been the “unofficial” film reviewer for Nic Marais’ breakfast show on KFM where he is THE FILM WURM!
Johan van der Walt
ImageA highly officious, disturbingly pedantic and rude man, vd Walt is a part-time Sheriff of the Court and full-time bumbling irritant (not unlike a Basil Fawlty from De Aar).
This character was used for a particular function where delegates were told they were to be addressed by a motivational speaker…
* Austin Powers Impersonation
* John Revolta
* Drunken Waiter
* Oom Gerrie
* Inspector Cleaseau
* Charlie Chaplin
* Bionic Braai Boy
* The Scotsman
* The Mexican: Pedro Non Morales or Julio Eeegassy Ass
* Ivan the Hippie
* The Hobo
* The Mad Professor
* Mr Bean Impersonation
One Man One Remote
It’s official! Television is 30 years old in South Africa! To celebrate this, Alan Committie returns to the Kalk Bay theatre where he presents the continuation of TV or not TV…
In this brand new stand-up comedy show Committie explores the huge variety of choice that is available to us on the ‘giggle-box’. He covers everything from disastrous decoders to suffocating soft porn and includes a look at reality TV, talk shows, Springbok radio, DVD technology and Saturday afternoon sports …
And – for no additional cost – that insufferable part-time security officer Johan van der Walt (from MNET’s Laugh Out Loud) has joined the Television Censorship board and addresses the audience on the sickly “state of the nation”.
