NAM Coamedy back with Easter laughs

Watch out for the eighth regular NAM Comedy Circle on Wednesday, 24 April 2019, just after the Easter long weekend.

18 April 2019 | Art and Entertainment

The regular comedy event, which takes place at the Hilton Kalabar on the last Wednesday of the month, this time around features three of the most celebrated comedians on the circuit. Again, the Hilton Hotel offers prizes galore: a cocktail for two at the Skybar, a complimentary massage for one person at the Hilton Breeze Spa and, of course, a dinner for two at the Ekipa restaurant, with a choice between Indian, International, Local is Lekker, Inter-Active Dining and Italian Pizzas, depending on the evening of the week the lucky winner selects to cash in the prize.

Sibongile Tshabala will open the show at 20:00. Ms Sibo, as she is affectionately referred to by her fans, shares with us her personal take on Easter and her latest escapades at the recent Wika event and, not unrelated thereto, sports her new chosen life motto 'what does not kill me makes me stronger'. The explosive Ms Sibo demands her audience's undivided attention from the word go. She may spontaneously pick out a member of the audience and, in good humour, challenge and engage the unsuspecting individual. The organisers' advice: do not sit in the first row during a comedy show if you are faint-hearted.

Next on is Joh White, a veritable veteran comic with 10 years of stand-up comedy and an uncountable number of live performances that took him, inter alia, “to the USA and to SA without the U”. Also, and without doubt Joh remains the best (and so far the only) white comedian in town! Joh will give us a part-time accountant's stance on the Chinese buying our mines, on current Namibian local matters that are not always 'lekker' and, finally, wraps up with a belated review of the year 2018 (highlighting why the year 2019 must be better).

Normally he is the master of ceremonies and host of NAM Comedy Circle, but this time around Mark Kariahuua changes hats and takes centre-stage as a certified, full-grown and award-winning comedian in his own right, presenting his first, full-length comedy performance of 2019. With his distinctive, energetic style and keen insight into modern culture, Kariahuua is a representative of the generation current lawmakers often refer to as our 'future leadership'. Against this background Kariahuua claims the right to take on politicians who make headlines for the wrong reasons; and he advises on Namibian methods to survive the current economic adversities in style and generally promotes the lighter side of life in the capital.

Entrance to NAM Comedy Circle is free of charge. The event begins at 20:00 and it is advisable to come early for a good seat in front of the stage. Excerpts from previous NAM Comedy Circle shows may be seen on YouTube. For further information contact Ernst Herma @ 081 122 3709.
