Producers bring popular show back for one performance only on May 30.

After the sell-out production of the 99% Zulu Comedy in March at the Playhouse, the producers decided bring the show back for one show only on May 30 at the ICC Durban Arena in response to overwhelming public demand.

For the first time, the show will host Marc Lottering, one of South Africa’s biggest comedians. He will share the stage with the Zulu Queens of Comedy, the talented Sne Mkhize and Celeste Ntuli. Vusi Ximba will perform at the ICC for the first time since his recent illness. The winner of SABC1’s So You Think You’re Funny?, Sifiso Nene will prove his mettle as a formidable force in the comedy circuit.

The Ntuzuma-born Siyabonga Radebe, known for his comical role in the SABC1 drama series A Place Called Home, will be a surprise comic find in the programme.

However, the real highlight of the show will be Ndumiso Lindi. Known for his trade mark hat, funky urban stylish look and brilliant impersonations, Ndumiso Lindi is regarded as one of South Africa’s top black comedians. An entertainer with flair, he delves into honest observations of everyday life in South Africa; the diversity of South African cultures; as well as the uniqueness of black people – he paints the nation from a young black man’s point of view.

Durban and the broader KZN will be treated to new levels of comedy in a programme directed by the popular Kenny Makenzo. DJ Siyanda will spin from his “old school” vinyl collection throughout the show.

99% Zulu Comedy starts promptly at 20h00 at the ICC Durban Arena on May 30. Tickets R120 available at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers.
