So who the 'al is Prodgers?

My parents had a sense of humour. They named a boilermaker's boy-child Alistair Martin Prodgers, and sent me off to school to get the snot beaten out of me!

"What's your name, then?"


"Prodgers to you too!" (BIFF! SCUFFLE! PUMMEL! OUCH!)

All Prodger is highly experienced and has represented SA in London, Toronto, Dubai and various African countries including Namibia, Zambia and Uganda. He is accessible with a sense fo humour that is easily understood by both South Africans and visitors from abroad, in fact in 2008 he was a finalist in the prestigious Yuk Yuk Great Canadian Laugh off of 2008. He regularly performs on major stages in South Africa with a highlight being the 2010 Vodacom Funny Festival at the Baxter Theatre Concert Hall in Cape Town.
