ARNOTTE Payne will perform his debut­ one-man show, 49 Shades of Black, on Friday and Saturday at the Durban Jewish Club.

49 Shades of Black is about a Durban man who grew up with a slightly confused identity - a Coloured man with black parents, who was raised by his Indian granny in Stanger. The show explores interracial relationships, mixed families, politics and one-liner comedy.

A motivator, comedian, actor, singer, instrumentalist and public speaker, Payne has been performing around the country for 15 years.

This year he became the first Durban comic to perform at the Comics Choice Awards.

He has performed with Carvin H. Goldstone, Eugene Khoza, Nick Rabinowitz, Laughing Stock, Trevor Noah and Afzal Khan.

Voted best KZN comedian in 2008, he presents a clean comedy­ style that has been well received in a variety of settings.

See him twist famous tunes into hilarious parodies at the Durban Jewish Club this weekend.

Tickets at or phone 083 291 5702 to book.
