Get your prescription of laughter with Riaad Moosa & Friends over Heritage weekend this September at Emperors Palace on Sunday, 23rd September, 2018 (especially since the Monday is a public holiday)!
Joining Riaad Moosa for a top-notch night of entertainment are his good friends – and some of South Africa’s biggest comedy heavyweights – Dillan Oliphant, Joey Rasdien, Khanyisa Bunu, Tumi Morake, Muthu Murugan, Ndumiso Lindi, Robby Collins, Schalk Bezuidenhout and Simmi Areff.
With this royal flush of SA comedy giants, this is guaranteed to be a show of hysterical proportions. As an award-winning comedian, actor, writer and presenter, Riaad Moosa is one of South Africa’s most popular and acclaimed funny men – and he happens to be a qualified medical doctor too. He certainly seems to have the remedy for the nation’s ills – a healthy dose of laughter, straight up – and hold the aspirin.
Dillan Oliphant has in a short amount of time grown from a fresh-faced novice to making waves nationally with his dead-pan-one-liner comedy. His stage presence makes his unnervingly clever jokes accessible to all audiences and not
Joey Rasdien is instantly recognisable. His endearing stage persona is intellectually absurd, physically hysterical and thought-provoking. He not only makes you laugh but makes you think as well.
Teacher-turned-comedienne, Khanyisa Bunu is a fan favourite. She was the first woman to win the audience choice award at the Comics’ Choice Awards and has also made her mark on SA TV with roles in Scandal! and Ses’Top La.
With a comedy career spanning over 11 years and numerous outstanding credentials under her belt, Tumi Morake continues to be a formidable force in the comedy industry. Her edgy and unpredictable brand of comedy has wowed audiences around the globe. When she’s not on stage, Tumi Morake can also be seen on TV screens hosting WTFTUMI and Point of Order as well as channeling her talents into writing, acting and producing.
Known as the ‘King of Indian Comedy’, Muthu Murugan has been wowing audiences for many years. Sharp-tongued and witty, Muthu will bring some Durban flavour to Johannesburg.
Another comedian who has risen to stardom over the past few years, Robby Collins started out as a lanky, long-limbed actor on the Durban theatre circuit and has become a comedian of high acclaim. The sincerity of Robby’s material is matched only by that of his stage presence, seeking out the funny in otherwise painful experiences. He has far surpassed the label of promising talent and is on the up-and-up as a multi-talented entertainer.
Schalk Bezuidenhout, the talent as sweet as mother’s milk and with a skop as powerful as brandy, is not your run-of-the-mill comedian. His refreshing approach to comedy explores his conservative upbringing and his current liberal outlook on life.
Simmi Areff was rated one of the top up and coming comedians in the country. Go ahead and ask him! This much-loved comedian started his career while completing his journalism degree. Having toured extensively around the country, Simmi’s witty tongue-in-cheek comedy has made a strong contender in the industry.
