JOIN Mozambik, Hillcrest, for another entertaining comedy night, featuring three of the biggest names in SA comedy on 31 May at 8.30pm.

Catch the comedian-guitarist – Deep Fried Man – as he shares the stage with one of Trevor Noah’s favourites - Robby Collins – and Richelieu B.

It’s an 80-minute show guaranteed to have you rolling with laughter.

Collins is considered one of the most prominent faces of the new generation of South African comedians and has played to some of the biggest audiences in SA with appearances at The Heavy Weight Comedy Jam, Kings and Queens of Comedy and Comedy Central Live at Parkers.

This comedian was personally selected as Noah’s opening act at over 70 of Noah shows across the country, including his latest country-wide sold-out tour, Nation Wild.

He earned a nomination for “Breakthrough Act of the Year” at the 2011 and 2012 Comics Choice Awards, and received a Emmy nomination for his writing on “Late Night News” with Loyiso Gola.

His recent winning of a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the 2014 National Arts Fest for his one-man show - This Bushman’s Crazy! - is further proof that this guy is funny.

Headline act the Deep Fried Man, a highly-acclaimed, award-winning musical comedian blends folk, rap, parody and as many as six guitar chords into his hilarious and sometimes controversial brand of musical satire.

In his first three years as a comedian, Deep Fried Man won a Comics Choice Award and has been nominated for three more. He has made a host of television and film appearances, and spent four seasons as a permanent cast member on the Emmy-nominated and Safta-winning satirical show - Late Nite News With Loyiso Gola.

Support Act is Richelieu B originally from KZN, this Comics’ Choice Award-nominated comedian is well-known for his various television appearances (LOL Show on Mzanzi Magic, Live at Parkers) as well as his 2014 one-man comedy show – From Where I Stand.

More recently he has been tearing up the national comedy scene performing huge, sold-out theatre shows alongside comedy giants – the Goliaths – and is arguably one of South Africa's hottest up-and-coming comedy stars. For information or booking contact 031 765 6556 or email - Supplied.
