About Me
Comedian, MC
(Af)fluent in both Afrikaans and English, Anne Hirsch was born and raised in the beautiful city of Bloemfontein (well it will be once they finish building it). She graduated from the University of Stellenbosch with a degree in Drama and went on to avoid doing a real job, by earning an Honours and Masters Degree from the University of Cape Town in Theatre and Performance with a focus on comic performance.

She has performed and co-written 3 successful one woman shows and won SABC’s ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ Season 2 in 2009. She also formed part of Theatresports, South Africa’s longest running improvisation troupe for very many years.

The Anne Hirsch Show is South Africa’s first (s)talk show hosted by none other than the*#ROFLMBOFOMF hilarious, Anne. She has interviewed over 40 of South Africa’s top celebrities, from Helen Zille to Kenny Kunene. The online comedy show released weekly, has enjoyed 5 seasons, garnered over a million views and boasts over 12 000 YouTube subscribers, making her one of the top Youtubers in the country. The show set a new benchmark in South African online media production in terms of technical quality and content.

The Anne Hirsch Radio Show Season 1, a version of the online show, was aired on JacarandaFM, East Coast Radio and OFM and was nominated for an MTN Radio Award for Best Night Time show. Anne also hosted the weekly Youtube show; FOBLO (Fear Of Being Left Out) written and directed by Oliver Hermanus.

Anne has established herself as one of our top comedians and MC’s with her own special brand of humour and charm and has MC’d some of the country’s biggest events including the prestigious YOU Spectacular Awards for 3 consecutive years and the Bookmarks Digital Awards for two consecutive years.

Anne has hosted BBC’s Lifestyle’s ‘The Great South African Bake Off’ for two seasons and despite the fact that she doesn’t know a spoon from a spatula, the show has achieved top ratings for the channel.  

In previous years, she was crowned one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year – Next Big Thing and one of Cosmopolitan’s Awesome Women. As a comedy writer, Anne contributes to various publications and has won a SAFTA’s for Best Comedy Writing for ZANEWS and was included in the Mail & Guardian’s prestigious Top 200 Young South Africans list.

Oh, and did we mention Angelina Jolie is her best friend?
