THE ENTERTAINERS

The Grand Finale of Mr. Gay South Africa™ :


The Hostess: Cathy Specific

Who's that girl? If you're somewhat puzzled by the identity of that voluptuous air-hostess (boasting calves of steel and dressed in a baby blue uniform) that you might have spotted at a posh function or cabaret show, wonder no more: That outrageously imposing blonde woman is none-other than Cathy Specific, a flight attendant and stage performer extraordinaire. Cathy is also the star and co-writer of the musical comedy revue show, Mile High with Cathy Specific.

The Host: Jason Greer

Jason Greer was introduced to the events and entertainment industry in 2000 when he worked as an entertainment coordinator for the Rand Show. After a successful three years with this iconic event he had the opportunity, amongst other things,to work at MonteCasino as a Promotions MC.In the eight years since, Jason has worked as an MC and in the field of event production, and has learnt that no job is without its pressures and demands. These are the challenges he thrives on when taking an event to its successful conclusion.Having left SABC 3 at the end of March 2009, Jason can now be seen as one of the new faces on the M-Net new entertainment show, All Access, broadcast every Thursday night at 7.30pm. Fortunately, this still lends him time to continue to be actively involved in marketing and entertainment solutions with The ProduXion House. On top of this he has appeared in numerous TV commercials, corporate videos and done many voice-overs and in his spare time, Jason is as an accomplished trainer on AutoCAD, an architectural design programme.(Read more about Jason here: http://www.jasongreer.co.za/)


The Diva: Judy Page

Judy Page is a true-blue South African musical theatre Legend who’s played some of the stage’s most memorable roles - from Dolly Levi to Roxie Hart. Born in Zimbabwe, Judy first thought of making a career as a dancer, but she was persuaded to instead harness her singing talent. Moving to South Africa in the 1960’s she became a band vocalist and cabaret performer before breaking into musical theatre in the mid-70’s production of From Berlin to Broadway. She’s since appeared in countless stage musicals including The Sound of Music, The King and I and Mame.Those who thought that Chicago was first performed in South Africa in 2005, may be surprised to learn that Judy was our first local Roxie Hart in the 1977 production. She also played Mama Morton in a Port Elizabeth production in 2002.Her award winning career has included tributes to Brel, Sondheim, Piaf and Judy Garland, performing in Sun City extravaganzas and even a stint in the now cringe-inducing SABC Dallas-wannabe soap series Westgate in the 80’s. Most recently she performed as Golde in last year’s Fiddler on the Roof.(Read more about Judy here: http://www.mambaonline.com/article.asp?artid=1677)


The Crooner: Timothy Moloi

Timothy Moloi is one of South Africa’s most extraordinary and yet up till now, unsung talents. With his smooth-as-velvet voice and masterful range, Moloi is an established and formidable singer with a talent that ranks up amongst the all-time greats. Highly revered and respected by his singing peers, Timothy has shared stages with some of the country’s finest acts, performed at some of the most prestigious events and been highly active in the music world, yet he has managed to remain, for the most part, out of the public eye. However, all that is destined to change with the 2009 release of his debut solo album through Thatch Music.
