Back with a bang

Nam Comedy Circle ended with a bang last year, leaving the Kalabar packed with comedy devotees spilling into the passage leading to the stairs and Ekipa restaurant.

The organisers hoped that, despite the perennial januworries, such enthusiasm will be carried over into the new year. It is, after all the last year of the decade.

Comedy does not rest, has no holidays. Too many things have happened that may not remain untold. As such, Nam Comedy Circle returns to Hilton Hotel's Kalabar on Wednesday, 29 January.

MC Mark Kariahuua is back from Okakarara, filled with new vigour that only weeks of peace of mind in the countryside can instil. A fresh face at Kalabar but well-known among comedy circles is Hildegard Titus, the awkward feminist. Another new guy with old demeanour is Marvtown, and finally, Funny Lip's alter ego Lloyd is back.

Titus was born in Otjiwarongo but grew up in Cuba, Windhoek and Washington DC. While Oshiwambo is her mother tongue, she admits she can't really speak it. “I'm what they call a mbwiti – the linguistically challenged,” she said. The artist, curator and photo journalist had her comedy debut at the Free Your Mind all-women show in 2015. She draws her material from an unlimited repertoire of blunders and misadventures.

Let the truth be told. Marvtown is not a previously unheard of comedian, but rather a new character: Invented, developed and assumed by none other than Clerance Mervin Claasen.

Veteran comedian Lloyd has not been resting either. He offers brand new material under the theme 'you have to know where you are coming from to know where you are going'. Lloyd will also share some secrets and revelations, like: Why there are fewer stray dogs in Katutura during January?

On top of the comedy, Kalabar gives away prizes and invites the lucky winners to test its Hilton Breeze Spa, D'Vine Wine and Sushi Bar and Ekipa Restaurant.

The show starts at 20:00 and entrance is free.
