Corne and Twakkie

Comedy duo

Corne and Twakkie are the stars of the comedy duo The Most Amazing Show.

These two madcap characters, who were a hit with their interactive, confrontational live comedy at festivals and in bars around the country, finally got their own television talk show on SABC2 last year. Broadcast from the inside of a dilapidated caravan, it showed the best and worst of local talent. Corne was born in 1969 in the ablution block of the PG Duvenage caravan park in the then Eastern Transvaal to a runaway youth from Klerksdorp. Twakkie was born to Sulette and Manuel Drevidos, a Puerto Rican immigrant hairdresser, in an undisclosed caravan park in 1970. The former is known to be the inventor of a much-copied disco move called The Faucet.

In real life they are known to be performers Louw Venter and Rob van Vuuren, nominees of the prestigious Vita and Fleur du Cap theatre awards
