Who Had The Last Laugh: Recap Of The Savanna Comics Choice Awards

Check out the winners of the Waldo statuettes at the Savanna Comics Choice plus pics of celebrities who attended the awards.

Published

on

It was an eventful Saturday evening at the Teatro as Monte Casino played host to the sixth edition of the Savanna Comics Choice Awards 2016. It wouldn’t be an award show without winners and loosers, long acceptance speeches, a few laughs here and there as well as history being made. Last night’s award ceremony had all of that and then some. The spectacle also had a galaxy of stars from the entertainment industry in attendance, to add some class to the proceedings.

Kicking off the night’s proceedings as the first award to be handed out was the coveted Savanna Newcomer’s Award which went to Ebenhaezer Dibakwane. The comic gave a memorable performance in-between the handing of the Waldo statuettes with his sketch comedy and stand up, often leaving all in attendance gasping for breath. The Goliath & Goliath brotherhood took the Best Friend of Comedy Award for the second year running while the Savanna Audience Choice statuette was awarded to Summary.

Casper De Vries was the recipient of the 2016 Lifetime Achiever Award for his out-of-the-box brand of comedy that stretches over a decade and a host of other accomplishments to his name.

The most nominated comic of the night, Skhumba Hlophe (four nominations) walked away with only the Flying Solo gong in a highly contested category that included Mzansi comedy legends Loyiso Gola, Marc Lottering, Alan Committie and Mashabela Galane. The Kaya FM comic conceded the Non-English Award to Mashabela Galane and the Breakthrough Award  to Virgil Prins.

It goes without saying that Skhumba would have loved to have went home with the award of the night, the Edgars Comic of the Year Award. That honour went to the beautiful Tumi Morake, who in her acceptance speech paid homage to Skhumba for the amazing year that he had. In winning the award, Tumi made history in becoming the first ever female comedian to be crowned Comic of the Year at the annual awards.

Here’s a full list of all the winners below:
Savanna Newcomer’s Award – Ebenhaezer Dibakwane

Best Friend of Comedy – Goliath and Goliath

Intermediate Comic – Yaaseen Barnes

Non-English Award – Mashabela Galane

Savanna Audience Choice –Summary

Comics Pen – Kagiso Lediga
