The Heavyweights International Comedy Show is here with the aim to make ’em laugh and leave ’em wanting more!
The event is setting the stage to be one of the largest cultural events with a world class comedy appeal and roaring laughs on the 11th December 2016. This year’s debut international comedy show will host an eclectic mix of both local and international headliners such as the hilarious, funny and multi award winning African comedic great Ayo Makun who goes by the stage name AY from Nigeria. He is also an actor, writer, director, radio and T.V presenter.
The ever ludicrous, funny and fearless Gina Yashere will also lead the pack gracing South Africa for the first time. Born in London and now residing in New York, Gina broke onto the American comedy scene with her appearances on Last Comic Standing (NBC), where she made it to the final 10. She then went on to be named one of the top 10 rising talents in the Hollywood Reporter and then never went home. She is also known in the US for being the only British comedian to ever appear on the iconic Def Comedy Jam an HBO television series produced by Russell Simmons.
The local line up includes retired lawyer and ‘Laugh Technician’ Thenjiwe who’s apparently lodged a complaint with the Knowles family claiming Beyonce is her daughter. The multi talented Trevor Gumbi, Tumi Stopnonsons and Nina Hastie are also bound to leave viewers in stitches. The witty and energetic Tallassmo features front and centre of the show as the MC.
Tickets are available at Computicket.
