(Troy Tesla)

South Africa's premier comedy and jazz series Jokes & Jazz IV is back for its 2017 finale at UKZN Centre for Jazz and Popular Music on October 3 at 18h00.

Hosted by renowned MC & comedian Troy Tesla, the 90-minute outtake exploded this year to become one of the best rated and best attended entertainment experiences in Durban.

Fresh from his Johannesburg & Cape Town tours with acts like John Vlismas & Rob Van Vuuren, Tesla will anchor a fresh line-up loaded with the best of the city's new comedians & musicians.

Comedians include Leah Jasmine - queen of woke comedy and recent finalist at the Kill or Die Comedy Competition as well as Daryl Williams - one of the most sought after of Durban's rising stars. This family friendly act has toured Swaziland, Mozambique and notable for side-splitting solo performances on the Sinfonia cruise ship! The line-up also features Shannon Rice, Maxamilion and newcomer Nabeer Peel.

The music sector will be represented by UKZN School of Arts (Music) students and guest artist will be Zah Nkwenkwezi - a bilingual poet and pioneer of the Durban poetry industry. She recently made a special appearance on UKhozi Fm.
