Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace, Johannesburg, Gauteng
South Africa`s first and only commercial vernacular stand-up show, 99% Zulu Comedy returns with a galaxy of comics that are sure to leave the usually packed audience in stitches.
On 18 and 19 July, the Palace of Dreams will face a Zulu ukuhlasela that will have the East Rand shaking and quaking with laughter
99% Zulu Comedy, SA’s number one, vernacular stand-up comedy show will hit the newly improved Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace. A welcome improvement to the theatre is that it now offers guests vastly improved sightlines with plush, fixed seating for an enhanced show experience.
The new seating has increased capacity to over 1000 seats, complete with a VIP area for ultimate comfort.
For two nights only, some of South Africa’s most sought-after comics will entertain the abantu basegoli with their usual antics, the exception being the entire show will be spoken in isiZulu.
The popular Afrocentric stand-up comedy show will feature a tribe of master comedians, including Jay Boogie, Mdu Ntuli, Skhumba and Sya, all of whom will leave their individual rib-tickling stamp on this unique evening that akumelwe lingabi nawo!
Guests can expect satirical perceptions on a range of social and political issues, intelligent wit and relevant humour packaged in a hleka and their home-grown dialect as a way of contributing to the preservation of indigenous languages and African pride.
The show is aimed at the Afropolitain, a mature urbane who is socially and politically conscious and individually rooted in cultural heritage.
