In the past few years we have seen the significant growth of comedy in Zimbabwe; we have seen many fresh talented young comics appearing on the scene. We have also seen the birth of 2 of Zim’s leading comedy clubs Umahlekisa and Simuka which has have proved to be a training ground for some of our well celebrated comics. Although not all the comics that we have seen on stage are the best, some are just not that good.
After last week’s comedy show in Bulawayo a show which celebrated Umahlekisa Comedy Club 4th anniversary some had questions on who are our top comedians in Zimbabwe. We went on a research drive and managed to ask comedy enthusiasts and some of our bloggers who have watched the comics on stage and today we give you our research findings. Some comedians have turned our normal every day happenings into artistic expressions and have managed to entertain us.
On coming up with the list the following things were taken into consideration quality,relevance and talent. Here are Zimbabwe’s 7 top comedians.
