The “King of Satire” Loyiso Gola makes a triumphant return to the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino for two shows only on November 2 and 3.
He will be performing his latest and what is set to become his bravest show yet, ‘Professional Black’.
Gola has been gracing live stages and television with his exciting, unique and frank comedy for over a decade. He has won many admirers with his fresh outspoken views, going where few comedians have dared to go. His last show ‘Life & Times’, with which he celebrated a decade of performing comedy, sold out houses in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pietermaritzburg and Soweto.
‘Professional Black’ should prove that even ten years down the line Gola is only getting better and his comedy odyssey just beginning.
Having recently returned from being invited to perform at the two biggest comedy festivals in the world, the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Gola is confident that his new offering will take his craft to a whole new level.
“I wanted to have a title that would spark interest, ignite curiosity and provoke debate,” says the award-winning comedian as he explains how the show highlights the preconceived notions and assumptions as to what ‘Professional Black’ means. The show will consist of the laugh out loud comedy that he has become known for but will also debunk and illustrate just how ridiculous many of the stereotypes that exist in South Africa today are.
Golla’s groundbreaking TV show ‘Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola’, now in its fifth season, is the country’s only satirical news programme with each installment drawing over a million viewers every week.
* Performances take place at 8pm nightly. Tickets are priced from R120 to R305 and can be booked at Computicket or at The Lyric Theatre Box Office on 011 248 5000. For more information, visit www.goldreefcity.co.za.
