Comedians:

Dalin Oliver

Comedian, Corporate MC and radio personality (Good Hope FM’s Breakfast Show), Oliver has captured audiences far and wide with his funny, clean-cut, energetic brand of humor.

From sold-out one-man shows, to touring with some of the biggest names in the country (Riaad Moosa, Barry Hilton, Stuart Taylor), to being featured on Comedy Central and recording his first DVD Special, the man has enjoyed overwhelming success.

He even recently played the lead role in his first feature film – Finders Keepers – which released in cinemas across SA in 2016.

The man is funny!!

 

Kagiso Mokgadi

Since winning a Comics’ Choice Award for ‘Best Breakthrough Comic of the Year’, 2014, comedic powerhouse, Kagiso, has swiftly become one of the most sought-after acts in the country.

Instantly likeable and undeniably funny, he has shared the stage with SA’s comedy elite (Riaad Moosa, Marc Lottering, David Kau, Nik Rabinowitz, to name a few!) while his debut one-man show – ‘Heavy’ – was met with standing ovations and rave media revues at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival.

Some of his best known performances include ‘The Jive Funny Festival Cape Town’, ‘London, Keeping You in Stitches’ with Riaad Moosa, The ‘Marc Lottering Roadshow’, ‘Blacks Only Comedy Show’ and many more.

The man is genuinely hilarious!

 

Yaaseen Barnes

Another Comics’ Choice Award winner (‘Intermediate Comic of the Year’), Barnes is not only a sought after Stand-Up Comedian but also an accomplished comedy writer for the SAFTA-winning ‘Point of Order’, a South African panel show which sees comedians go head to head in a mock parliament.

He is currently filming the third season of his extremely popular web series, ‘The Weekly Noise’.

Known for his hard hitting one-liners, Yaaseen has had a meteoric rise in comedy since winning the Good Hope FM Laughmaster Competition in 2014.

Notable appearances include ‘Kings and Queens of Comedy’, ‘The Jive Funny Festival Cape Town’ and many others.

 

Carl Weber

Comedian, Weber, who is also Oliver’s Good Hope FM co-host, burst onto the comedy scene in 2011 after winning ‘Cape Town’s Next Comic’ with Phat Joe, and later made a name for himself with his sold-out 2016 debut solo show – ‘Bloem-Boykjie Diaries’.

Since making his TV debut on Comedy Central, he has opened for Loyiso Gola (“Life and Times”) as well as international acts, Greg Behrendt and Pablo Francisco.

2018 saw him launch his latest solo offering – “Waar Was Jy”- at Cape Town Comedy Club.

 

Masood Boomgaard

No stranger to the Durban comedy scene, Boomgaard has been performing since 2007, and has shared the stage with pretty-much every top local and national act.

With his unique, clean brand of Durban-centric humor that appeals to a wide range of audiences, Boomgaard has toured extensively both nationally and internationally.

As one of the most popular acts in Durban, his acclaimed one-man comedy shows have been a huge hit over the years!

He has performed his one-man shows in Australia (2 tours) as well as Dubai and the UK.

Boomgaard writes, he makes movies (‘Curry and Vice’)…and he’s FUNNY!

 

Dustin Moore

Twice selected to Tour as host/opener to Brian Aylward (Canadian Stand-Up Comedian of the Year, 2016), this South African-born, international comedian has a “unique high-energy, free-flowing style of comedy that fills the room with positivity and laughter”.

He has performed in over 7 countries alongside world-class comedians, such as Netflix’ Tom Rhodes (Magners International Comedy festival, 2018), Ron Josol (CAN) from Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, and many more!

 

Darryl Williams

Named one of Durban’s brightest new prospects in his 2017 On The Couch interview with Durban journalist, Se-anne Rall, Williams is one of the hot Durban acts making leaps and bounds in his comedic career.

He has a style that’s guaranteed to entertain all types of crowds.

Raised in Durban, and exposed to all cultures, he addresses different issues from relationships to politics and life in general.

He has performed with the likes of Joey Rasdien, Donovon Goliath, Kagiso Lediga, Marc Lottering , Mark Banks and Carvin H Goldstone, to name a few.

2018 saw him perform his debut solo show in Australia.

 

Tsitsi Chiumya (JHB)

Featured on the Mail & Guardian ‘Young 200’ list, and nominated for South African of the Year in the ‘Young Achiever’ category, as well ‘ Newcomer of the Year’ at the 2017 Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards, his quick wit, charisma and gentle style of comedy have made him a comic to look out for.
