The 2015 Nando’s Mass Hysteria comedy showcase announced its comedy cabinet at a press conference at Nando’s HQ in Lorentzville near downtown Jozi. South Africa’s favourite comedians gathered to have their portfolios announced, saying “if comedy had a government, this would be it”.

Nik Rabinowitz was announced minister of shark-infested water affairs; Chester Missing the shadow puppet minister; Tumi Morake the minister of Ben 10s, Yolo (You Only Live Once) and homesteads; Mpho Popps Modikoane the minister of television and gratuitous adverts; John Vlismas the minister of non-communicative diseases; and Marc Lottering the minister of the Cape, retail therapy and statues.

Although they weren’t in attendance on Thursday morning, Alan Committie and Emmy-nominated Late Nite News host Loyiso Gola are also part of this year’s line-up.

Those who were keen to experience another kind of art had an opportunity to look at some of the exceptional artwork on display, which is part of Nando’s various art initiatives.

The Nando’s Mass Hysteria 2015 tour is called The Long Bunfight to Freedom, which takes a swipe at the chaos seen in Parliament recently.

The tour hits Joburg from August 19 to 23 and Cape Town from October 14 to 25.

Damaged traffic lights and load shedding have led to a mushrooming of informal traffic controllers – mostly homeless people or beggars – in Joburg's major intersections. What are your thoughts?
