NAM Comedy Circle August edition

Just Hendrick, Ndangi Likela and OC Ebs to perform.

23 August 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Two newcomers to NAM Comedy Circle will grace the stage at the Kalabar, come Wednesday, 28 August.

When Just Hendrick last performed at the Warehouse Theatre's Free Your Mind Show in 2015, writer Martha Mukaiwa described him as amusing, animated, outrageous, local and immensely inspired performer leaving each preceding comic in the dust. Then, without warning, Just Hendrick 'just' disappeared and the local comic scene was temporarily deprived of a promising new star on the horizon.

Well, Just Hendrick is back with brand new, funny and expressive sketches on everyday life situations. The millennial with a mission claims he inherited his humour from his mother.

OC Ebs is a down-to-earth woman and staunch member of the Namibian working class. Since August is considered to be a month to celebrate women worldwide, OC Ebs vows to empower, praise and offer advice to all her sisters and members of the stronger (sic) sex.

Ndangi Likela describes himself as a Namibian stand-up comedian with a sense of humour that is somewhere between that of a politician and a traditional healer. Likela's imagination knows no boundaries, yet his jokes remain respectful.

Well-known comedian Mark Kariahuua is the MC and anchor around which comedy at the Hilton Kalabar unravels every last Wednesday of the month. The show starts at 20:00 and entrance is free of charge. The evening is complemented with surprises and prizes courtesy of the Hilton Hotel. The prizes include a voucher for two for a day to use the gym, pool and steam room combined with a 50% discount at the Hilton Breeze Spa, a dinner for two at the D'vine Wine & Sushi outlet or at the Ekipa Interactive dinner buffet.
