SINCE making his stage debut 10 years ago, the enigmatic and charismatic Karou Charou has, via his numerous sold-out shows across the country, amassed a huge fan base both nationally and internationally and is by all accounts one of the most commercially successful comics on the SA circuit. This success and popularity was recognised by the international brand of Mcdonald’s, who handpicked him as the face of their Hot and Spicy burger campaign, which included two TV ads, street billboards and cinema ads.Last year Charou acquired the status of international artist when he became the first South African comic to perform three shows in three cities in Australia (Perth, Sydney and Brisbane). The secret to Charou’s success is his vibrant & dynamic style, which often sees him leave the comfort of the stage to engage in unscripted yet hilarious banter with the audience. Audiences also love the fact that they can easily relate to his comic tales.The show will see the “turbaned one” perform some of his best material from his various shows over the past 10 years. Among other things, he will reveal why most Indians can’t swim; why Indians choose not to play rugby; and how Indians put the “fun” in funerals. He will also explore Indian weddings and aim to explain why marriage is “just not normal”.With this being a family show, Charou has an entire segment where he invites kids on stage to have fun with them. Then there is the finale segment, which can only be described as a “hoe down”. Music, song comedy and dance ... It’s a roller coaster of laughs for the whole family. Catch Karou Charou live at the Golden Horse Casino in Pietermaritzburg on Friday, March 29 at 8 pm. Early bird ticket sales are now closed, tickets, available for R150, are available at Computicket and Medikist Pharmacies. Enquiries to email@example.com — Supplied.
