FAMED South African comedian Riaad Moosa was set to host a national tour which included a show at the Golden Horse Casino on Sunday, March 28, but because of the recent announcement of 62 confirmed cases in the country [at the time of going to press]; gatherings of more than 100 people have been prohibited and so the show has been cancelled. For his ‘Not A Nice Guy’ Tour, Moosa was going to have shows at Suncoast- Durban, Blackrock- Newcastle, Sliverstar Casion in Krugersdorp and at the Cape Town ICC Auditorium.Roshika Doolabh, public relations officer of MS Publicity has confirmed that the show has been cancelled. According to Doolabh, the reason for the ‘Not A Nice Guy’ Tour: “Riaad Moosa has always been the ‘nice guy’ but these days, he finds himself feeling rather irritated and moody with some of the ‘little’ things in life – like his children using his thumbprint while he is sleeping to unlock his phone to play Pokémon.” She added that the idea of being a nice guy seems to be appealing, however, this philosophy doesn’t seem to be genuine anymore. She further explained that caught in this middle-aged delirium, Moosa had planned to unfold his tales of getting older, what makes up a nice guy and what his solution to dealing with age in his hilarious one-man show, ‘Not A Nice Guy’. Moosa started doing comedy while he was still tertiary but his career in Comedy took off in 2006 with his first one-man show “Strictly Halaal” with sold out shows around the country. For the tour, the comedian decided that he would tour PMB to reach his loyal fans who are unable to travel to DBN to watch him live. The comedian firmly believes that “Laughter is the best medicine”, however he is cancelling the show for safety purposes and will reschedule his tour once it is safe to do that. Other major events such as the Royal Show and Two Oceans Marathon have been cancelled.
