Keeping Up With The Xhosaz
Xhosa People this; Xhosa people that; Xhosa people be like... clearly this is one tribe that has become the Kardashians of all Southern tribes.
Comedian Ndumiso ‘The Roosta’ Lindi brings together Xhosanostra’s funniest comedians under one roof at Vodaworld in Midrand for Keeping Up With the Xhosaz on Saturday, 31st of August.
From the long bus ride to the City of Gold packed with hopes and a big dream – and not forgetting “umphako” (skaftin - lunchbox) - this will be a showcase of genuine homegrown comedy with Xhosa’s funniest talents including Tats Nkonzo, Loyiso Madinga, Ntosh Madlingozi, Khanyisa Bunu, Isaac Gampu and Luphelo Kodwa; Ndumiso Lindi as host.
“We are a diverse country with different cultural backgrounds. Experiencing an art form in your mother tongue is something that should be normalised. Comedy has come a long way, audiences now want to hear their stories delivered in their own languages. Representation is key, diversity should be celebrated in all its forms,” comments Ndumiso about why he put together this show.
Adding: “The comedians we’ve chosen are a true reflection of where we all come from, they each offer different styles of comedy and came from far to make a mark in the city of Gold.”
The show will be performed in a mix of Xhosa and English. Tickets are available from R165 per person from Computicket online or retail outlets. The show is rated PG16 and starts at 20h00.
