(NEW YORK) — Like other comedians around the world, Aries Spears is doing his best to make people laugh even during these trying times.That’s why it’s not surprising that the MADtv alum and master impersonator, who recently posted some hilarious impersonations on his Instagram, told ABC Audio that when it comes to comedy, “Nothing’s off limits.” “No, but timing is everything in comedy,” Spears clarifies. “If it’s some tragic that just happened, you might want to hold up. But at some point, time heals.”“So, you’ve got to move forward,” he continues. “And, you know, that’s why the whole thing about laughter is pain and pain is laughter: The two go together.”Spears’ thoughts on the importance of laughter definitely ring true for today. Since the news broke of the COVID-19 pandemic, the comedian-actor has been consistently posting funny videos and impersonations to help fans get through the difficult time.“You know, no matter what goes on in your life, you’ve got to at some point figure out how to laugh at it to move on,” he says. “Or, to take the sting off of it. So, yeah, no, nothing’s off limits.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

In the backline, JJ Engelbrecht is bracketed at outside centre with Jan Serfontein, while Juan de Jongh will come onto the bench if needed. Classic clashWith the title on the line, the All Blacks’ controversial 29-15 win in Auckland during which Bismarck du Plessis was incorrectly shown a red card (as admitted by the International Rugby Board), and a massive crowd expected at a ground that has been somewhat of a bogey venue for the New Zealand, a classic clash is on the cards. There are two changes to the Springbok team that beat Australia by 28-8 in Cape Town last weekend, as well as one possible late change. 3 October 2013 “We will give JJ all the time he needs to fully recover from his quad muscle injury, but if he can’t make it, Jan will start with Juan on the bench,” explained Meyer. ‘A wonderful achievement’“What a wonderful achievement for Beast,” Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer said in a statement on Wednesday. While some may consider a victory with a four-try bonus point too much to ask, the Springboks have done even more in their last two tests against New Zealand at the ground, running in 11 tries and scoring at least 40 points in successive victories. Locks“Juandre will slot in without any difficulty as he’s been part of the squad since day one and I’m very pleased for Franco, who has been training with us for more than a year already. In August 2004, the Springboks won 40-26, with Marius Joubert dotting down three times, as the Boks crossed the try line five times, while in 2000 they won 46-40, scoring six tries, including two each for Werner Swanepoel and Robbie Fleck. SAinfo reporter and SA Rugby The Springboks need to beat the All Blacks at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Saturday, scoring at least four tries while restricting the Kiwis to not more than three, in order to win the Castle Lager Rugby Championship. A bridge too far for the South Africans? Maybe not. While the All Blacks are the reigning world champions and in a prime position to claim the Castle Lager Rugby Championship, their record at Ellis Park is unimpressive: in 11 tests at the Johannesburg venue, the Springboks have won eight times to the Kiwis’ three wins. Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira, who made his debut in the green and gold in June 2008 against Wales in Pretoria, will play in his 50th test for the Springboks, joining his fellow front rankers, Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis, and Morne Steyn, who all reached the milestone this season. RotationUp front, Bismarck du Plessis rotates with Adriaan Strauss at hooker, while Juandre Kruger comes in at lock for Flip van der Merwe. The uncapped Franco van der Merwe has been selected on the bench. So, maybe, South Africa winning with a bonus point is not as far-fetched as some may think. “Franco’s attitude since day one has been fantastic. He’s waited patiently and always stayed positive, which is what we as a team stand for. On Saturday, he could make his debut against New Zealand in front of his home crowd at Ellis Park.” Mtawarira will also become the fifth prop to achieve the feat behind Os du Randt, CJ van der Linde, Ollie le Roux and Jannie du Plessis. “He is someone who doesn’t speak a lot, but you know he always gives everything he has for the Springbok jersey. It’s always good to see hard work and dedication pay off like this.”

He added: "If there's going to be some sort of product integration [with VAR], it's got to be authentic. It's got to be endemic."

"We didn't get the most important thing in football, as you know, which is the result, but we got some positives for sure from the game," the manager explained afterwards."Analysing the game, we didn't start like we wanted to. They started the game strong, faster with the ball than us, more aggressive than us."Until the goal they scored, the first, they were clearly better than us. After that we showed that reaction and desire to challenge them and try and get a different result."The reaction was really good and after that the game was more balanced with the possession and the quality they have to break that immediate pressure in some moments."
