Make ’em laugh and leave ’em wanting more! The Heavyweights International Comedy Show aims to do just that.
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 1st April 2017 (its an April fools joke that’s not actually a joke) 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. AY has also held the ranks of being named a UN peace ambassador in 2009 for his efforts for social and economic issues affecting ordinary citizens in his country. The ever ludicrous, funny and fearless Kansiime will also lead the pack gracing South Africa for the first time.
Born in Uganda Kansiime has won multiple awards such as Comedy YouTube Sub-Saharan Africa Creator Award and African Entertainment Awards USA, Best Comedian’s Award 2015 to name a few. 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.
