Trevor Noah isn’t the only South African comedian in the international spotlight following his debut as a member of Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show. Comedian Tats Nkozo has further cemented South Africa’s comedy stake in the international comedy arena by taking the top honours at the annual Montreux Comedy Festival’s annual comedy contest in Switzerland on Sunday. Over the past 25 years the festival has grown to become mainland Europe’s biggest comedy festival making this win a significant victory for this up-and-coming comedy star and TV host.

Nkozo beat finalists from the USA, Europe and the Middle East in this fiercely competitive comedy laugh-off. Check out the submission video that got him the prize below and make sure you get to newsstands this weekend for more laughs in this weekends #Trending – The Comedy Edition.
