Loyiso Gola, South Africa’s talented satirical Xhosa speaking comic hits the Eastern Cape with his one man show, Professional Black at the Port Elizabeth Opera House on the 20th of October 2012. Professional Black returns to S.A. fresh from performances at the two biggest comedy festivals in the world – the Montreal and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals. Now it is our turn to see Gola take his crafty tongue to another level!
Professional Black promises to be a comedy romp full of tear jerkingly funny and hard hitting punch lines – a roller coaster ride in one of the most daring comedy minds South Africa has ever seen. When asked about the controversial theme and title of his show, Gola had this to say. “I wanted to have a title that would spark interest, ignite curiosity and provoke debate. This comedy style has won him many admirers as he has continuously gone where most comedians don’t dare.
They say the best comedians in the world are the ones that hold up a mirror to society. If you want to see how we are looking as a country and as the world at large especially with regards to our obsession with stereotypes and socialised norms…do yourself favour and go watch Professional Black.
