QUEEN of Zulu comedy Celeste Ntuli is coming to the Boardwalk Amphitheatre in Summerstrand on Saturday 29 October.

Ntuli (38), who has been a lone female voice in the 99% Zulu series, will be here to wrap up her 2016 one-woman stand-up comedy tour, Black Tax.

Guaranteed to have audiences in stitches and gasping for breath the Queen of Zulu comedy has been reported to be excited to come to Nelson Mandela Bay to wrap up what has been already a successful run of the Black Tax Tour which she wrote herself.

The eMpangeni, KwaZulu Natal born Celeste, who has had SATMA nominations for Best Indigenous Comedy a couple of times, also took part in the 99% Xhosa Comedy with the likes of Ntosh Madlingozi, TD Jokes and Donovan Goliath.

“We cannot wait to host Celeste who is such an exemplary South African woman and has achieved so much just by being who she is and doing what she loves,” said Nqobile Majozi, the Marketing Manager of The Boardwalk.

Hilarious, straight forward and outspoken, one of the few in South African women comedians, Ntuli plays the award winning role of Siphokazi Zungu, an old infertile wife in a polygamous marriage in the popular soap opera, Isibaya.

She has been quoted saying that it never enters her mind that she is a black woman doing comedy, and that she didn’t think beyond the fact that it was just what she wanted to do.

Ntuli speaks her mind on issues regarded as taboo. She is as bold, blatantly honest and hilarious as they come.

Black Tax is something we have all paid, sometimes rather unwillingly, but this show is said to get audiences laughing at themselves and falling in love with their beautiful country all over again.

The show starts at 7:30pm and tickets cost between R140 to R165 per person at Computicket.
