Top comedians head for PMB

2013-08-29 00:00

POPULAR stand-up comedians Trevor Gumbi and Celeste Ntuli are set to wow the crowd at the 99% Zulu Comedy show in the Pietermaritzburg City Hall at 8 pm on Friday, September 6.

Also on the bill are Vuma 103FM’s Kwasa Breakfast Show co-host Felix Hlophe, Mondli Mzizi, the Satma winner for best traditional comedian, Satma nominee Siyanda Maphumulo, hot KwaZulu-Natal comedian Mpukane, and newcomer Mali “Mshini” Ntuli from eNkandla.

Gumbi, who is performing in Pietermaritzburg for the first time, is the host, head writer and voice-over artist of Mzansi Magic’s Headline. This is a glamorous magazine show that brings viewers closer to celebrities in SA.

He writes and stars in the SABC1 sitcom Ses’top la, a spin-off of the hugely successful City Ses’la. He also hosts Mzansi Magic’s travel show Msawawa True South with Trevor Gumbi, and starred in the film 31 Million Reasons.

He has also performed at Kings & Queens of Comedy, Oppikoppi, Rocking the Daisies, Kingsize Comedy Jams, Blacks Only, Laugh out Loud, Arts Alive comedy festival and many more.

Gumbi’s charm offsets his assertive energy on stage. He brings to the fore politically uncomfortable issues, delivering them with hilarity.

Wow Entertainment is staging the event in the city with the support of The Witness and Gagasi 99.5 FM. Monwabisi Grootboom of Wow Entertainment said: “We’ve decided to stage such a huge show in Pietermaritzburg purely because of the support we’ve been receiving in the area over the years.

“For this reason, we’d encourage people to buy their tickets sooner as this show will sell-out before the date.”

Tickets are R150 at the Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores.
