About Mel Miller

 

Mel Miller

As he celebrates 45 years of, turning the Stage into his home, Mel Miller, is still recognised as one of South Africa`s finest comedic minds.The veteran performer is admired by all who dare tread a Stand-Up stage and the feeling is evident, when the countries most successfull comedian, John Vlismas says "Mel is my Comedy Dad!"

 

It`s almost impossible to believe that it`s 45 years since he first told a joke whilst performing in the then very popular folk group, "Mel & Mel".
Mel spent time in Isreal during the late sixties and while their performed in hebrew. On returning to South Africa in 1970 the comedy genius had grown, and Mel formed part of South Africas first comedy TV series "Biltong and Potroast". He also played the Adam Leslie theatre and was known for his performances in "Group Hairier". "The Adam Leslie Revue" and "A Tribute to Cole Porter".

 

Mel`s voice soon became recognised on radio too, when he involved himself in Radio theatre with "Springbok Radio" and was heard on the hits: "The World of Hammond Innes", "Marriage Lines", "Jet Jungle" and "Squad Cars".Stand Up Comedy was not a popular artform during the ‘Apartheid' era and one night after a show, Mel was picked up by the security police, a typical Hillbrow police station beating ensued followed by sincere threats to the wellbeing of his family and even his telephones were tapped.As the countries political policy transpired, Mel Miller and Joe Parker decided to write a review called "Nelson De Klerk and his Amazing Technicolour Country" - which enjoyed capacity audiences for six weeks.

 

 

As Stand Up Comedy in South Africa evolved and the culture was formed Mel`s art became more and more popular, having been invited on nearly all the Smirnoff Comedy Festivals. Performed at the Grahamstown Festival twice, Toured with 5 self penned solo performances, and has headlined at ALL ‘The Comedy Shop' productions.


Mel has allways had an understanding of corporate events and during his 45 year career has been the profiled performer at numerous events accross the country. His clients are loyal repeat customers. In some cases Mel has done annual shows for the same companies for over ten years.
