(Masood Boomgaard)

Enjoy a feast at Mozambik, Ballito, of delicious Mozambican cuisine whilst enjoying a top-class show from three hilarious stand-up comedy acts: Gareth Woods from Cape Town, Richelieu B from Johannesburg and Durban’s own Masood Boomgaard.

Gareth Woods is an ex-Durbanite currently owning the comedy scene in Cape Town! His intelligent wit and hilariously funny guitar parodies make him stand out from the crowd. He has performed his unique brand of guitar-comedy on TV’s Comedy Central (Channel 122), and regularly shares the stage with some of the top acts in the country!

Host for the evening, Masood Boomgaard, has been performing stand-up comedy since 2007. He has shared the stage with almost every top local comedian. A highly sought-after MC and a columnist with the Sunday Tribune, he recently performed his highly acclaimed one-man comedy show at Sibaya - Funny Country! Visit

Providing the support act will be Richelieu B (JHB), acknowledged as one of South Africa's hottest up-and-coming comedy stars. Originally from Durban, Richelieu moved to Johannesburg and for the past two years has been tearing up the comedy scene in the Big City. Accolades include being nominated in the Comics Choice Awards in the Audience Choice category, hosting the Proudly Coloured Show and State Theatre shows and regularly performing improv comedy on the LOL show on Mzanzi Magic.

Comedy Night takes place on May 27 at 20h30 at Mozambik, 4 Boulevard Centre, Compensation Road, Ballito. Tickets R30. Information and bookings on 032 946 0979 or email: Early booking is strongly advised,
