Comedian Kurt Schoonraad on life as a parent
South African comedian and actor Kurt Schoonraad has learned that parenting is no joke.
When he's not running the Cape Town Comedy Club, he's a husband and father to his 10-year-old son, Jack.
The comedic legend says his life changed drastically after the birth of their son and he and his wife have to juggle two businesses.
Schoonraad says parenting is made up of a lot of apologies.
