As Sartuday the 28th of March draws closer we all wait to see Comedians take to the centre stage as we celebrate an initiative that has bought comedians and comedy lovers together in Bulawayo. Umahlekisa was founded by Comedian Ntando Van Moyo in 2013. A project which has been self funded. The first show was a backyard Comedy concept at Jimmy’s Restuarant with Doc Vikela, Simba The Comic King,Long John,Clive Chigubu Chichi Tat, and the founder Ntando Van Moyo.
Umahlekisa Comedy Club has also groomed talent, with the first female comedian Nomsa D came from the club. The great achievements also include the partnership with Intwasa Arts Festival KoBulawayo.
Umahlekisa Comedy Club has become the premium humor service provider in Bulawayo and we wish the club a Happy second Annivesary we wish to see the initiative grow and reach dizzy heights.
Our writer gives us a snippet of the Comedians that will be on stage on Sartuday.
Q (The Boss)
Is a hillarious comic who is willing to let a rich man sleep with his woman for a substantial amount of money, he also has a double barrel surname Dube -Siziba showing his mom is the dad at home. His claim to fame include the hit Ztv show Ma1. He will be in Bulawayo on Sartuday and we will see him bring the house down.
Talented and Creative Babongile Skhonjwais another comic to look out for as he takes on stage to give us his ever hillarious side.People want Bulawayo music to win awards and get airplay, how when the musicians sing about laxatives and such? Laxatives should be used as comedy material.
He has been making waves for some time . His amazing talent has seen him doing Theatre. We remember him from Studion 263 and currently scintillangly hillarious Zambezi News as An AA ‘officer ‘ .
He has toured several countries and will be in Bulawayo for the 2nd time and for the 1st time on the Umahlekisa stage, with all this in his bag certainly he will bring the house down.
