Mel JonesLocation: Based in Cape Town
Born and raised in Cape Town and a proud resident of Mitchell’s Plain, Mel Jones describes herself as "the favourite" of three siblings.
She is a single mother, comedian, award nominated producer and an energetic MC. Her career started taking flight when she was fondly received at the Spier Amphitheatre only 6 short weeks after doing her very first open mic slot. Since then, you may have heard her on the radio as co-presenter of a very popular morning show, seen her on SABC3's Comedy Showcase, the Phat Joe show, the King Size Comedy Tour, the Blacks Only Comedy Show, Mind The Gap, The Heavyweight Comedy Jam, Kings & Queens of Comedy, the critically acclaimed comedy & sketch show, Bitches, the Vodacom Funny Festival where she was their very first female host, Comedy Central and is hugely popular as a corporate comedian and MC.
There’s also a strong possibility that you may have read about her in various magazines (not the ‘bikini’ mags – the edu-tainment ones. Ask her mom, she’s saved every copy). In fact, she was the guest editor for an edition of Khuluma magazine, Kulula.com’s in-flight magazine.
She’s also been featured in a book called ‘Mitchell’s Plain – A Place in the Sun’ which led to an award winning production, which she starred in and was showcased at the Suidoosterfees at the Artscape in Cape Town for 2 years in a row.
The shows, ‘Doing It for the Money’ and ‘Still Doing It’ in which she co- starred with another very popular Cape Town comedian, have been met with great reviews as a Cape Town hit.
Mel takes laughter and hilarity very seriously and as one of only a handful of female comedians in the country, she is part of a very exclusive club.
