HARARE – Award-winning comedian Carl Joshua Ncube will perform alongside several African comics at the Anti-Xenophobia and Anti-Racism show to be held on Friday at the Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg.
The show dubbed One Laugh, being spearheaded by South African comedian Napsta, will feature comedians from South Africa, Malawi and Zimbabwe.
At the weekend show, Ncube will share the stage with South African jesters Napsta, Donovan Goliath, Nina Hastie, Yaseen Barnes and Loyiso Madinga.
Ncube told the Daily News that the show would act as a platform to highlight the need to do away with xenophobia and racism.
“The show will allow the comedians to discuss some taboo issues and use humour to bring the spotlight on issues that have caused terrible clashes within the Sadc region notably South Africa and most recently in Zambia,” he said.
The Zimbabwean comedian will also be in South Africa to headline a number of shows at the recently-launched Goliath Comedy Club — one of just three comedy clubs found on the African continent.
“The Goliath comedy family has really been instrumental in my growth as a comedian and it is really an honour to be performing at their new home of comedy,” said Ncube.
Ncube will then return to Zimbabwe with a brand new show called Mr. Feel Good which is set to tour Zimbabwe in preparation for an international tour that will see him perform in Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, France, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Thailand, China, Burma, Vietnam and Cambodia.
