Getting older can be confusing and what seemed to be tolerable before doesn’t seem to be anymore….
Riaad Moosa has always been the ‘nice guy’ but these days, he finds himself feeling rather irritated and moody with some of the ‘little’ things in life – like his kids using his thumbprint while he is sleeping to unlock his phone to play Pokémon. The idea of being a nice guy seems to be appealing, however, this philosophy doesn’t seem to be genuine anymore. Caught in this middle-aged delirium, Riaad Moosa unfolds his tales of getting older, what makes up a nice guy and what his solution to dealing with age in his hilarious brand-new one-man show, ‘Not A Nice Guy’.
Off a successful run at the end of 2019, Riaad has added new shows for the 2020 season which will include Durban (27 March), Newcastle (28 March), Pietermaritzburg (29 March), Witbank (3 April), Krugersdorp (4 April) and Cape Town (11 April).
“The human condition is very confusing. I talk about how hard it is to know what the correct choices are in life; it’s a show that people will relate to on different levels,” comments Riaad. When asked about whether he has experienced any tell-tale signs of a midlife crisis, Riaad adds: “I’m confused a lot. Also, I’ve developed grey hair where there should not be grey hair. But on a positive note, I haven’t tried to buy a Harley Davidson, get a new young girlfriend or grow a ponytail”!
And from one doctor to another (well, doctor of statistics that is), Mo Vawda has been confirmed as the opening act for the upcoming tour. His wildly amusing and unique comic stylings of clean-cut material and hilariously accurate accents has built him a loyal fan base. Sharing hilarious stories about living in South Africa, being a husband and soon-to-be father of two and daily musings, Mo Vawda original style of comedy has seen him rocketing to be one of the greats of the next generation of South African comedians.
