Former Durban actor Sans Moonsamy brings zany Indian comedy to The Globe Theatre.

Former Durban actor Sans Moonsamy, now one of South Africa's premier comedians, is back at The Globe Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino in Johannesburg from October 8 to 18 with a hilarious comedy show about Indian lives, wives and drives that will have you rolling in the aisles.
