HOT from the start of its sold-out 10th anniversary launch show at the Durban Playhouse, the 99% Zulu Comedy is coming to the capital city tomorrow in what is to be a most spectacular show.

The South Africa’s most travelling commercial brand and only vernacular stand-up comedy show since 2005 has chosen PMB as its only KZN town to celebrate its 10th anniversary in a show that’ll take it’s usually sold-out audience down the memory lane.

Counted as the one of top two of the biggest comedy brands in the country, the show that features the same line-up as the Durban Playhouse, will be hosted by Skhumba Hlophe from SA sitcom on SABC 1, Thandeka’s Diary.

Hlophe is a Tembisa-born comic who launched his career by blazing the Soweto and Tshwane comedy festivals.

His style of comedy is influenced by everyday township life and his hilarious, but smart way of seeing and interpreting it, makes humour that will crack even the hardest comedy critics up.

Skhumba commands a strong and growing career following performances at various venues in South Africa that include Soweto Comedy Festival, Tshwane Comedy Festival, 99% Xhosa Comedy Show in East London and Port Elizabeth, Opening Guys on Mzansi Magic and Blacks Only.

He is one of the main acts on the Mzansi Magic’s Taxi Ride series, is a regular feature on the Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola as well as M-Net’s LOL, and currently features on a number of television adverts.

His material mainly comprises stories of his childhood as well as encapsulating the absurdities that come with living in modern-day South Africa.

Skhumba is making a huge impact on the local comedy industry, especially through his weekly radio comedy slot on Kaya FM with Bob Mabena and Kuli Roberts.

“Before the most talked about comedy show at the Durban Playhouse, we had just returned from a two-night sold-out run at the Goldreef City in Johannesburg, and we can’t wait to stage this phenomenal not-to-be-missed show for the second most supporting city in KZN, Pietermaritzburg,” said the producer Monwabisi Grootboom.

The show will take the people down memory lane and will feature messages against xenophobia.

The show strictly starts at 8pm and

tickets are available at Shoprite Checkers for R180.
