Season finale of Comedy Central Live at the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar

After a whirlwind first season, Comedy Central Live at the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar drew to an exciting close this Sunday. The innovative new format shot during lockdown brought together by some of South Africa's most legendary comics and rising stars. Comedy Central Live at the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar was packed with laughs and an entertainment lineup that included the likes of David Kau, Farieda Metsileng, The Black Wendy, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Carvin Goldstone, Lihle Msimang, Rob Van Vuuren, KG Mokgadi, Ebenhaezer Dibakwane, TsiTsi Chiumya , Prev Reddy, Muzi Dlamini and to name but a few.

The Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar came to life during lockdown Level 5 to show its continued support for the SA comedy industry. During this time, the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar lived on Savanna’s social media channels and due to restrictions, no production or filming could take place. As a result, fans followed a YouTube/Facebook link on Thursday nights to receive their weekly dose of laughter when they needed it the most. With a lineup featuring much loved SA comedians, the show didn’t disappoint. The Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar then moved to Comedy Central where it will live for the foreseeable future.

The finale episode featured Siya Seya as the barman material is the perfect blend of wit and humour and is sure to have our virtual audience in stitches. The first headliner of the night was the extraordinary Lihle Msimang whose original set was very relevant to South African culture and is sure to knock audiences off their socks. The episode also features a funny skit by viral sensation Farieda Metsileng who is famous for her light-hearted personality and entertaining clips on social media. She played out that awkward scenario when one shows their parents their final school results and let’s just say it doesn’t go down all that well.

The last act was a giant in South African comedy, the one and only David Kau. He talked about all the lessons and challenges he’s experienced during lockdown and with everything this year has brought us. If you missed the show on Comedy Central, catch it on Savanna’s social media page on Thursday.
