(Dusty Rich)

You’ve seen him on TV (LNN, Comedy Central, Nation Wild DVD), now catch him LIVE in Durban!

After leaving his home-town of Durban for Johannesburg in 2013, Dusty Rich has become a comedy force to be reckoned with. He has performed all over the country with Trevor Noah himself (That’s Racist, It’s My Culture, Nation Wild) and just finished filming his half-hour special on Comedy Central Presents!

Incorrigible, sharp-witted, fearless and downright hilarious, the man is a master of crowd interaction and literally oozes ‘funny’.

Presented by On Fire Comedy, Rich will make three appearances in Durban:
