FOR the first time Pietermaritzburg’s renowned comedian Justice Kubheka will hold auditions on 26 April at Sprytz Premium lounge.

The auditions will be combined with a mentorship programme aimed at unearthing comedic talent.

Speaking about the auditions Kubheka said: “Comedy is a special genre which needs to be nurtured. There are so many people who take comedy for granted and think it is something that comes natural, when in fact it also requires training.

“Before you can become a comedian, you need to understand your audience and how to deliver to your audience. People need to be taught what to do in situations where the audience does not find their jokes funny.

“There is so much that can be learnt about comedy. It is not only about talent, it is a skill that one acquires. We are calling aspiring comedians to come to the auditions. Afterwards will be offered a mentorship programme.”

Auditions start at 12pm lasting until 3pm.

On 30 April there will be a comedy night at Sprytz when comedians Mise, Kubheka, Smanga and Kedibone Mulaudzi will share the stage. The show starts at 7:30pm. Entrance is free
