Vote for LOYISO GOLA

We were just saying the other day that it’s time us young people got amongst and started doing things our way… looks like we have a leader already! Loyiso Gola, one of our favourite most outspoken comics is ready to lead the revolution… Disillusioned by the leaders of today? Tired of the succession battle? Unhappy about floor-crossing? Sounds like you need to follow the growing group of … supporters for the next “president elect” – Loyiso Gola. After hosting the “Let Durban Laugh Festival” which will be held at the Durban City Hall on the 8th and the 9th of December and is expecting about 4000 people over the 2 days, Loyiso Gola hits the road again with a much anticipated run of his one man show which will aptly carry the gripping title, “Loyiso Gola for President”. This show will run at the Market Theatre, Newtown from the 30th of January to the 4th of February 2007. Popular radio station YFM has come on board as the key media partner and will be giving the show a substantial amount of support during its run. This will be the first instalment of this show and be the first opportunity for Loyiso to perform this set to the public. However it will also be the last time Jozi sees him perform for a while as he leaves for Durban shortly thereafter to perform as the warm up act for internationally acclaimed comedy superstar Sugar Sammy for the entire month of February at the Suncoast Casino resort. (Sugar Sammy hails from Canada and his meteoric rise to fame culminated in him touring North America last year with Dave Chapelle. It is testament to the profile that Loyiso Gola now enjoys on the local comedy circuit that he was selected by the organisers of the event to be part of this show) Loyiso Gola has been described in comedy circles and numerous articles as “the next big thing in South African comedy” with some going as far as saying that he is the future of comedy in this country. His unique sense of humour and his affinity towards openly frank and observational commentary has carved Loyiso into a comedy genius and has elevated his status in the realms of local comedy. In taking his one man show to the people, Loyiso follows the path of many legendary comedians before him in packaging a one man show with its own distinct style and subject matter. Many of these, namely Richard Pryor’s I’m Crazy; Eddie Murphy’s Raw; Chris Rock’s Never Scared; Jerry Seinfeld’s I’m Saying This For The Last Time and Dave Chapelle’s Killing...

STEVE HOFMEYER – the new Chuck

We got so tired of those Chuck jokes… they really were overdone. Don’t people know when to stop? But the new wave of Steve jokes did make us laugh…. Hiers a lag vir ‘n koue Donderdag. Dankie to Ang for the mail. Although they take the piss out of Steve, imagine what they could for his career. Our favourite must be: When Steve Hofmeyer goes to Pick ‘n Pay he just picks. … Screw Chuck, we have Steve! Steve Hofmeyer once slept with 10 Poppies at once. Steve Hofmeyer braai’s with his fingers. Steve Hofmeyer doesn’t support the Bulls, the Bulls support Steve Hofmeyer. Steve Hofmeyer doesn’t have a good voice, the microphone is scared of Steve Hofmeyer and makes his voice perfect. When Steve Hofmeyer stares at raw meat it turns to biltong. Bless Bridges didn’t die in a car crash. Steve Hofmeyer beat him to death with a red rose. Morkels gives Steve Hofmeyer any guarantee he wants. Steve Hofmeyer repossessed Bob Mugabe’s Farm. Not even Chuck Norris gets as many fathers day cards as Steve Hofmeyer. The “National Party” is actually a term to describe Steve Hofmeyer’s birthday celebrations… Steve Hofmeyer cannot count. He doesn’t need to. Klipdrift is actually Steve Hofmeyer’s urine. Osama Bin Laden and Steve Hofmeyer have the same amount of letters in both their names. Coincidence? Steve Hofmeyer is the only man alive to turn down Patricia Lewis. Steve Hofmeyer can get through on...
