The second instalment of 2018 Soweto Comedy Festival is a few weeks away. It is set for August 24, 2018 from 8pm at the Stanbic Piazza at Molapo Crossing in Gaborone.
On April 20th, the famous event kicked off the celebrations of the 10th anniversary of this prestigious relationship between Botswana and Soweto Comedians under the leadership of Kedibone Mulaudzi at the Maitisong Festival. They thrilled the audiences with a spectacular show hosted by MOD and Chris Mapane. It featured Botswana’s Bambino, Triccs and Zimbabwe’s Brian Sibanda who went head to head with Thapelo ‘Kingflat’ Mametja and Skholo Manyisa. It was a ‘ribcracking’, almost sold out evening, the biggest paying show of the Maitisong Festival 2018.
The next show promises to be bigger and better with exciting offerings to give the audience an incredible experience. This time around Amble Promotions has partnered with Big Show Entertainment, Molapo Crossing and Culture Art Café.
The show boasts an impressive line-up of high profile comedians from South Africa and Botswana. The lineup of comedians includes; Trevor Gumbi - Comedian and television host of Friends like these every Saturday on SABC 1); Eugene Khoza - The face of Nedbank for many years; Kedibone Mulaudzi – The Daily Sun Show (Mzansi Magic).
From Botswana we will feature MOD, Bambino, Triccs, Jonny Pula and Ribcracker. These are the stars of laughter in Botswana. Bambino is preparing to launch a new television programme, details to be announced soon. Triccs recently launched his debut comedy CD and a successful one-man show at Phakalane Golf Estates.
