From Apartheid to Zuma
Stand up Comedy Africa style
The documentary explores the future of SA comedy by tagging along with six aspiring comedians competing against each other for a chance to perform at the Nando’s International Comedy Festival.
Our crew adopts a fly on wall approach to the backstage antics as we witness the frayed nerves, the fear of dying on stage and finally.... the sweet sound of laughter!
We then travelled across the country, interviewing the major players of today’s comedy circuit to find out the origins of SA comedy, what it looks like today and what we can expect in the future?
With Ndumiso Lindi’s city boy edge, Mel Miller’s sledgehammer approach, Kagiso Lediga’s rib tickling anecdotes and some historical footnotes from Joe Parker, a coherent and fascinating mosaic unfolds.
A view of South Africa’s stand up comedy scene presented by the very comedians who have been making us laugh for years.
