One of South Africa’s fastest-growing comedy brands, ‘Blacks Only Comedy Show’, is set to once again get Jozi buzzing. Award-winning comedian David Kau is in the driver’s seat for the one night only event, which also features an entourage of some of South Africa’s top black comedians.
‘Blacks Only Comedy’ will take over Emperors Palace on Saturday, May 30, at 8pm.
Comedy fans can expect an evening of unbridled laughter as the comedians unmask their homorous and revealing views on a range of uniquely-South African issues.
‘The Blacks Only Comedy Show’ was co-established by Kau in 2004 to give emerging black comedians a platform to showcase their talent. Over the past decade, ‘Blacks Only Comedy’ has become renowned for featuring seasoned stand-up talent and budding comics. True to its roots, the “cast” of ‘Blacks Only Comedy’ primarily comprises people and puppets of colour.
Kau has been on the South African comedy scene since 1998 when he became the first black comedian to perform at the Smirnoff Comedy Festival in Cape Town. That and the raging success of Blacks Only Comedy are among Kau’s many highlights.
The line-up will include the likes of:
