Ari Kruger


Ari is a two-time SAFTA Best Comedy Director winner for his sensational mockumentary series Tali’s Wedding Diary and Tali’s Baby Diary, with the shows also ranking among the most awarded comedy series in South African television history. He is also the co-creator and director of the hugely popular web series SuzelleDIY, which has garnered over 32 million views on YouTube.

Ari’s foray into advertising has brought equal success, with his exceptional ability to direct performance and conceive visual humour quickly making waves in the shorter format. His feel for comedic timing and understanding of tonality make him equally adept at both situational humour and more stylised narratives, and his strong visual sensibility and background in post-production shine through in work that is distinct, punchy and memorable.
