Loyiso Gola's coming home

Many years ago, a young man born and raised in the township of Gugulethu, Cape Town, rustled up enough money to buy a one-way ticket to Johannesburg to pursue a seemingly impossible dream to become a comedian. Eight years later this young man, now an award-winning comedian, celebrated as one of the country's most gifted comedians, comes back to perform his one-man show in Cape Town for the first time ever. Loyiso Gola is coming home on 30th April!

Loyiso Gola's Coming Home Comedy Show is brought to you by Cape Town's Beat Heart 104.9FM. “Comedy resonates with everyone and as the voice of Cape Town we are proud to bring such a talented act back home,” says Marketing Manager for the station, Alexis Searle. “Entertainment is what we are about and what better entertainment than comedy.”

In this comedy and music extravaganza, Loyiso will be supported by two of South Africa's hottest music acts in award-winning musician HHP (winner of a MTV Music Award) whose incredible live performances have become legendary as well as the enigmatic JR whose track “Make the circle BIGGER!' has to surely go down in the annals of history as the hit of 2010.

Loyiso's previous one man show, “Loyiso Gola for President”, enjoyed groundbreaking success, earning him rave reviews as well as a South African Award for Best Breakthrough Comedy Act of the Year and a nomination for the Best Comedian of the Year at the Mzansi Awards. This show is now on DVD and is selling well nationwide.

In terms of the show, Loyiso will unravel stories of his life and the adventures of growing up in crazy South Africa. In a frank but tasteful manner, he will make commentary on issues that we are surrounded by today and his set will cover anything and everything from gender relations to race relations, growing up in the townships to cruising in the suburbs, Bantu education to union strikes.

“His insights into South African life showed his keen social eye and the enviable ability to find the humour in everyday situations. Hilarious and unmissable in my opinion!”
Emma Nicholson - The Star

This show takes place on the 30th of April 2010 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for ONE NIGHT ONLY with an after party at a venue yet to be confirmed. Tickets for the show are R150.00 and can be bought online at or at Computicket outlets nationwide.
