Who we are
A little bit about us
Co-owned by one of South Africa’s most outspoken and controversial comics, John Vlismas, and seasoned management executive Taffia Keight, Whacked now incorporates an artist/speaker booking agency, exclusive talent management and an expanding production division.
Begun in a spare bedroom in 1997, Whacked now books hundreds of appearances annually, produces theatre and television and provides management to eight leading SA comedians.
Whacked is synonymous with talent development. Our greatest ongoing contribution in this regard is the “open-door” policy, which allows any talent, regardless of representation or lack of it, to book time with us to seek advice, guidance or strategy. This is given freely and confidentially.
