Comedian Joey Rasdien

The Comedy Central Presents gigs have become a must-see on South Africa’s stand-up circuit. This time around comedy heavyweight Joey Rasdien is headliner.

Rasdien (@JoeyRasdien) was right there as post-Apartheid South Africa first learned to laugh at itself. As part of the collective of comedians behind the groundbreaking sketch show The Pure Monate Show, Rasdien and comedians such as David Kau and Kagiso Lediga found the funny in a changing society still grappling with sharp racial inequalities. Since then, Rasdien’s hilarious observations of his community and country have seen him headline scores of shows including the 2006 indie film Bunny Chow.

Rasdien is cheapest uk supplier viagra joined by fellow comedians Trevor Gumbi, Paul Snodgrass and Nina Hastie. Stand-up comedian, Twitter king and TV presenter Gumbi became even more recognisable when he appeared with nothing but a smile on a bilboard advertsing his first one-man show. The charming yet controversial Gumbi has also notched a string of comedy festivals on his belt as well as starring roles in local sitcoms.

Comedian,

radio host and extreme golfer, Snodgrass (@Snoddie) has come a long way since he started his comedy career at the Smirnoff International Comedy Festival nearly 10 years ago, becoming a regular on Cape Town’s comedy scene as well as a gig at the Edinburgh Festival and a sold-out one man show.

Fellow broadcasting veteran Hastie (@ThatNinaHastie) first made a name for herself as the youngest radio host in South Africa at the tender age of 13. After five years with youth radio station YFM and children’s television channel K-TV, Hastie has also lent her voice to animated characters in films such as The Adventures of Dick King and Bushfire Fairytales. She’s now turned her razor sharp wit to stand-up comedy.

Comedy Central Presents Joey Rasdien Live at Parker’s takes place at Johannesburg’s Montecasino on Wednesday 30 January.
