Conventions fly out of the window, no warning lights flash to alert you as to what’s coming next. Every word is a cue for a song, an anecdotal story about past encounters real or imagined. Alvon does everything ‘his way’ and if you happen to get in that way, be prepared to be taken on a crazy ride into a world of entertainment in which he has earned the right to be called ‘The Entertainer’ and be awarded civic honours for his massive contribution to the industry.
Alvon Collision born in Cape Town, has been called “Mr Showbiz” in South Africa for many years. He had his own spectacular caberet floor show at Kyalami ranch in Johannesburg. 18 shows in 3 years. He performed in “Joseph and his amazing Technicolor dreamcoat” (3000 performances). Tim Rice, the author, said he was the best Pharoah in the world.
After winning the Gallo award and Three Leaf award for his performance as Pharoah in "Joseph", he performed Jesus Christ Superstar as Herod and in Evita portrayed Magaldi.
Countless productions of his own “Showtime”, with a cast of 40 singers and dancers, which received standing ovations, at Artscape Theatre in Cape Town.
His TV credits include “Spotlight on Alvon Collison”, “Late Night Live”, “Open End”, “The Knicky Knacky Knoo Show”, “Something old, something new”, “Music a la Carte” and “Revue Plus”, “Noot vir Noot” and “Liriekeraai” and many chat shows. As MC, compere, singer, dancer and fun man, his big songs are New York, New York, Click Song, Simply The Best, Rock ‘n Roll medley, Elvis tribute, Wonderful World, To Life, Le Chaim, My Way, Rice/Lloyd Webber medleys and his witty repartee is a favourite with everyone. He is never offensive.
A professional and enjoying his life to the fullest, he is grateful to God for giving him a second chance with his life after being rescued from the sinking of the ill fated Oceanos Liner.
Motivational shows are his forte and companies who have employed him as speaker and entertainer are BP Customer Responsiveness Course (40 Shows up and down the country) , I&J, Red Cross Children's Fund (Helping to raise R2 Million), Rotary Clubs of Sea Point, Constantia and Claremont, Nissan Group, Atlantic Forming, Seardel, Woolworths.
He will sing and entertain with joy at your weddings, divorces, Barmitzvah's and birthdays. A big thrill was singing for Archbishop Desmond Tutu at his 70th birthday and also at The Arch and Leahs 50th wedding anniversary, and meeting Nelson Mandela. At Premier Ebrahim Rasool's residence he performed many times for the premier's guests.
