BREAKING the ice with a healthy dose of comedy this winter is sought-after South African comedian, Loyiso Gola, host of the twice Emmy-nominated Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola.

He will be at The Boardwalk Amphitheatre on Friday, June 5, for a one-night-only show.

“When one of the country’s most popular award-winning comedians comes to town, there’s only one thing to do: get ready to laugh until it hurts. We are thrilled to have him back at The Boardwalk this winter,” says Vuyiswa King, the entertainment manager at The Boardwalk.

Gola is not only one of the most gifted comedians South Africa has ever produced but he is also one of the most important ones. He has been enthralling live and television audiences with his unique brand of frank and outspoken comedy for more than a decade.

His comedy journey began at the age of 19 when he went to Johannesburg to pursue his dreams. Almost immediately recognised as an up-and-comer not to be taken lightly, he won the Sprite Soul Comedy competition and was runner up in the professional category of the Freshest Five Comedy Competition.

From performing with the Cape Comedy Collective in the Cape Town comedy circuit, he has evolved into a comedy phenomenon performing all over the country as well as appearing on television, radio and the big screen.

Tickets are available at Computicket from R100 per person
