South African, Nigerian and Ugandan comedians unite for a once off and outrageously funny comedy showcase, The Heavyweights International Comedy Show, to promote African Unity and a bid to fight against xenophobia in South Africa.
The show will be held at Carnival City on April 1.
The diverse ensemble of local and international headliners includes AY – Ayo Makun (Nigeria), Kansiime Anne (UGANDA), Thenjiwe (SA), Trevor Gumbi (SA) and supported by Tumi Stopnonsons (SA) and Nina Hastie (SA).
All established comedians in their own right each brings their own unique brand of comedy to the event, with the promise of huge laughs for all.
In the driver’s seat as host for the evening is none other than the charming and equally hilarious, Toll Ass Mo. Another massive draw card for the show, he is a Xhosa comedian straight out of Tembisa.
The comedy show starts at 8pm but doors will open early at 7pm. Tickets cost R200 per person and can be bought from Computicket, Shoprite, Checkers and House & Home.
