3 TONS OF FUN - One of Cape Town’s most loved all-female groups

3 Tons of Fun have emerged over the last 8 years as one of Cape Town’s most loved all-female groups. They are in great demand on the corporate circuit throughout South Africa and have performed at functions for top companies including amongst others Standard Bank, Ernst & Young, BOE, Sanlam, Transnet, Bidvest, Pick n Pay, Rabie Properties, IBM and Ericsson as well as at many prestigious events at the Arabella Sheraton Hotel, Kelvin Grove, and at Evita Bezuidenhout’s 80th birthday party in 2005. 3 Tons of Fun were invited to perform at SABC3’s 3Talk Conference early in 2006 and at the Woman of the Year function in July of that year.

Their first international engagement was in Thailand in September 2006 to entertain Pick n Pay franchisees from all over the world in their annual Conference. Since then they have travelled to Switzerland, Swaziland, Togo, Zambia, Ghana and Namibia as well as wowing audiences throughout South Africa and performing regularly at conferences at Sun City. They were the performers who wowed the audience at a Gala Dinner at the closing of the World Orchid Society Conference in Cape Town in September 2007.

3 Tons of Fun sang the acceptance speech for John Vlismas at the 2007 SA Comedy Awards. They were also privileged to be part of some of South Africa’s top performers to perform at the switching on of the Christmas lights in Cape Town in December 2007. Most recently they have performed at the Loerie Awards 2008 and the Huisgenoot/YOU Skouspel in October 2008. In 2009 amongst many corporates throughout South Africa they also performed in Botswana, Nigeria and Thailand and are performed in Thailand in April of 2010 as part of the Freedom Day celebrations

What the press has to say

More tons of voluptuous fun … when they are looking the three divas can have any crowd eating out of their hands.” …

BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY – THEY JUST BRING THE HOUSE DOWN … The Three Tons of Fun are glamorously substantial, to say the very least, and once again they are demonstrating their power to hold an audience and leave them clamouring for more. The moment word got out that On Broadway had a four-day gap and the Three Tons were going to fill it, the patrons began packing in, for the gals have built up a loyal following on the cabaret circuit. I could watch them all night” …

“Love, the nastiest, yet the most joyous sensation in our human frame of reference. And we deal with it so badly clutching comfort food, razor blades and bawling buckets through our tear ducts. And it takes three large ladies to remind us that the idealised versions of romance and goo-goo emotions we see on screen isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. Three Tons of Fun takes us on a pleasurable journey of self-discovery. Don’t be alarmed when the penny finally drops and from the playlist you realise ‘Ohmigosh that’s so my life unfolding on stage !’ – Three Tons of Fun is great the first time around, but fantastic with a second viewing. Do see.” …

THREE TONS OF TALENT AND PLENTY OF FUN … For some time Three Tons of Fun has existed in a universe of it’s own. There simply hasn’t been as durable and ubiquitous a stage / cabaret act as these three larger-than-life divas. A cultural phenomenon, the women have taken Cape Town by storm, and at the end of this show, when the audience showed their appreciation with roaring approval, it was as satisfying to this reviewer as it must have been for the perfromers. They have enough razzle-dazzle to fill at least two full-scale musicals. One senses a synergy between the performers and if it continues, the whole world beckons.” …
