Comedy lovers will gather around for a taste of the best medicine life has to offer – an evening of endless laughter. Twenty of Mzansi’s up-and-coming stand-up comedians will compete at the Savanna Newcomer Showcase at the Soweto Theatre on Sunday, 29 May. Each of 20 new comedians, many of whom have never performed to a large theatre audience before, will have five minutes to perform a stand-up comedy set and compete for nominations for the 2016 Savanna Newcomer Award. These acts will be interspersed with sets by past winners.

Past winners of this award, which include Yaaseen Barnes (2015), Loyiso Madinga (2014), Schalk Bezuidenhout (2013), Dillan Oliphant (2012) and Deep Fried Man (2011), will put in special appearances to bolster the new, as yet undiscovered stand-up comedians. The aim of the event is to give these rookie comedians a platform to show what they are made of and to get members of the comedy industry to vote for them for the 2016 Savanna Newcomer Award to be announced at the 6th Annual South African Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards® on 3 September at the Teatro at Montecasino.

“There is no doubt that we South Africans all need to laugh more and Savanna certainly has the apples to make this happen!” says Tania Kotze, Savanna SA Marketing Manager.

The show starts at 16h30 but doors open at the Soweto Theatre at 14h30 for a pre-show Shisa Nyama, banging house tunes from Kaya FM DJ’s and a complimentary Savanna Premium Cider on arrival. Tickets at R100 are on sale at www.webtickets.co.za, Pick n Pay stores and www.sowetotheatre.co.za.
