To some people comedy is defiance. As American comedian Will Durst aptly summed it : it’s a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. And it’s the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.”

Stand-up comedian Nkosinathi Maki will put this to the test in the hope that abantu base Skom will come out of their winter hibernation and get laughing the winter blues away at Guga S’thebe, Langa on Saturday at 6pm.

“For the past three years, we have been running three comedy shows on a weekly basis around the city and now are venturing into the townships,” said Maki,

The show is titled Nathi Comedy Nights and has been consistently performed in Observatory at the Florentine on Mondays, on Tuesdays at MR Pickwicks and Pastry Lounge in Kenilworth on Wednesdays,

Maki says they offer a platform to 20 up-and-coming comedians who can been frequently seen on Comedy Central.

“We are branching out to new and bigger audiences now,” he said.

The first gig in Langa will see comedy fused with fashion and soul music.

Comedians like Gino Fernandez and Schalk Bezuidenhout, Welsely Cockrel, Khanyisa Kenqa and Phila Mnyanda will share the stage .

Admission is R50. For more details call 0744919465

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
