YOUNG comedians and poets, not recognised for their talent, were chosen by Cavals Modelling Management Agency at a fund-raising talent session at the Shayamoya Hall last Saturday.

The agency founder, Asanda Phungula, said young comedians and poets are struggling to get exposure at many Kokstad events.
He said the agency is going to organise workshops for some comedians and poets.
“The agency will organise gigs for selected poets and comedians so they get exposure. Kokstad has many talented young people, but they are unrecognised,” he said.

Phungula called on government departments and municipalities to support youth organisations and young poets and comedians as a way of reducing crime, poverty, unemployment and the high drug abuse.

Artist Nhlanhla Kapok said comedy is lacking support and as a result young people are reluctant to participate in it.
“Young people need to be educated about comedy,” he said.
