(Riaad Moosa)

Shake the shackles of winter with a giant sized dose of comedy relief with South Africa’s comedy doctor, Riaad Moosa at the Wild Coast Sun’s Tropical Nites Theatre on August 6.

Award-winning Moosa, one of the most prolific comedians of his generation, also happens to be a qualified doctor. With his own unique style and the remedy for the country’s irks – a healthy dose of laughter – he is widely-known as the ‘comedy doctor’.

Moosa has been on the local comedy circuit for a number of years. He has featured in various shows including Alex Jay’s 5fm comedy Jam and he also wrote and performed in the Pure Monate Show, which was aired on SABC 1 and ranked the most popular show amongst the urban youth. A regular headliner on the comedy circuit all over South Africa, Moosa has performed with some of South Africa’s comedy greats, and is famous for his own one-man shows such as Strictly Halaal and For the Baracka.

His most recent standup comedy tour in 2013, Doctor’s Orders, was one on the biggest tours of his career, performing to over 35,000 people all over South Africa and Africa.

Riaad Moosa appears at the Wild Coast Sun’s Tropical Nites Theatre on August 6. Tickets R120 booked through Computicket and at the Wild Coast Sun’s Information Desk.
