Angel Blythe Campey

Acts like a lady. Thinks like a man.

Angel is a Capetonian comedian, born in Durban and raised in Plett, Jozi, Somerset West and her grand-mother's house.

Given the name Angel at birth, she didn't have the career luxury of becoming a doctor or lawyer and her options were limited to being a stripper or stand-up comedian. After a few test runs in front of her own mirror she chose comedy as it made the neighbours boo less violently.

As a new comedian she counts herself lucky to have performed on the best stages with some of SA's comedy heavyweights already. She also appears regularly at well known comedy clubs, has opened for one man shows and performs at top festivals, theaters and events.

In her first 4 months of comedy, Angel was selected by Alan Comittie as the 'Breakthrough Comic' to perform at the Fugard Theatre in the 'Fugard Fest of Comedy' - December 2011 alongside Riaad Moosa, Stuart Taylor & Mark Banks. She was invited as a guest to tour to The Pieter Dirk Uys' Evita Se Peron Theatre in Darling for 'Wise Cracks' as well as opening the Vodacom Funny Festival 2012, to a sold out Baxter theatre in Cape Town. She opened for Joey Rasdien's one man show, Mixed DNA at the Vodafone Dome. Angel was also chosen as a 'Queen' for Emporer's Palace's 'Kings and Queens of Comedy 2012 and 2013' with Comedy Central alongside comedy greats including: Tumi Morake, Tracey Klass, Marc Lottering, Joey Rasdien, Chris Forrest & Barry Hilton.

FESTIVALS Angel has performed comedy at include: Rocking the Daisies 2011 & 2012, Synergy Live 2011 & 2012, Rock the River - New Years Eve 2011 - 2012, Mardi Gras- 2012 & Up The Creek 2013.

With an Honours degree in Film& Media from UCT, a history in acting that starts at age 3 and a life well traveled from all over SA to UK, USA and Asia, Angel feels right at home on stage and is easily adaptable to different crowds.

She has her own radio show with co-host Kamini Pather, 2 girls 1 mic every Friday 1-3pm on 2oceansvibe radio.

Angel is enjoying continuing success performing stand-up around South Africa - but wont object, however, if you'd still like to slip R100 notes into her belt strap.
