Botswana: Two Comedians to Perform in South Africa

| April 28, 2016

Gaborone - Jujuvine and Phenyo The Master will this Friday share the stage with their South African counterparts at the Mahikeng Comedy Jam.

The comedians are expected to deliver hilarious work and leave a lasting impression following the recently held comedy show at Railpark mall where the two proved to be good on stage.

Taking local comedians to South Africa is an effort by Major Moves Comedy to create a sustainable market and continual artist development.

According to Major Moves Comedy media liaising officer, Gaolathe Kediemetse the main aim is not only to bring top class comedians to local stages but also to export local talent to South Africa and other countries such as Swaziland, Lesotho and Namibia where they can experience different crowds.

Major Moves Comedy has in the past taken Charles to dazzle Morula Sun in Pretoria, Oefile 'Mawee' Mokgware who mesmerized Rock The Mother Tongue in Johannesburg, and maun based Elijah 'Ouza' Gaoakanyediwe who took on Rhapsodys in Sunnyside Pretoria among others.

Meanwhile, Phenyo The Master is no stranger to South African stages as last year he graced the monthly 'Tips and Friends' event at Taliban in Ga Rankuwa.

He performed so well that he got a standing ovation at the end of his performance with the audience asking for more appearances in future events.

He has been featured in all the top comedy shows in 2015 such as Heavyweights Comedy Festival (HICOFEST) featuring Chester Missing, second Annual Francistown Comedy and Poetry Night featuring Mashabela, Strictly Come Laughing featuring Kagiso Lediga and All Star Comedy Tour.

Namibia based Jujuvine who made his comedy debut at the Rail Park Comedy and Cocktails Night will introduce his act to the SA market at Mahikeng Comedy Jam.

He is well known for sharing funny skits on social media that has earned him loads of fans in Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa alike where the skits have been widely shared.

This created interest from different media as he has been interviewed by among others Motsweding FM and almost all the radio stations locally including BTV.

The Mahikeng Comedy Jam event will also feature two South African comedians Vuyo Jiya who hails from Mafikeng and So You Think You're Funny Winner Khanyisa Bunu.
