Monthly dose of laughter

Nam Comedy Circle at the Hilton Hotel's Kalabar has since its inception assumed something of a cult status.

21 February 2020 | Art and Entertainment

The last Wednesday of the month is comedy time again! Five comedians of repute – Taap The Guy, Cassie Jessica, Kris With A K, Erich Nepembe and Joh White – will set the Hilton Hotel's Kalabar alight with laughter.

Jessica is the new kid on the block, who only recently started making a name for herself on the live comedy circuit. She comes across as a go-getter, a millennial with a mission who does not shy away from real or imagined taboos within her community. On stage, she bubbles like a fountain, releasing bursts of comedy in her vernacular, Oshiwambo, which she mixes with English to get the message across. She can further be described as a refreshing new character on the local comedy scene.

Kris with A K returns after a hugely successful solo comedy show late last year. There he brilliantly packaged and sold tested material, while at Kalabar it will be all new stuff. “It's about me, myself and I in an economy that is dooming, about the month of love as seen from a single polygamist's perspective and about the Hilton Hotel and the type of people who mingle there,” said Kris.

Who remembers Taap The Guy, the comedian with the pink suitcase who made a mark in the 2015 and 2016? Well, he's back with a vengeance, this time around with an obscure mix of sketches embracing Valentine's Day, the coronavirus, Fishrot and election hangover.

Finally, Erich Nepembe, geologist turned comedian, will rock the stage with an analysis of black versus white behavioral patterns, spanning areas as different as love, politics and witchcraft – the latter a field in which, according to Nepembe, black people could learn so much from their white counterparts.

Highly endangered Caucasian comedian White leads the evening, with Mark Kariahuua taking a brief but well-deserved break.

Kalabar will once again give away prizes, inviting the lucky winners to test the Hilton Breeze Spa, the D'Vine Wine and Sushi Bar and the Ekipa Restaurant. The show starts at 20:00. Entrance is free.
