Comedy-goers are in for a treat as Sydenham comes alive with some of its home-grown talent at the Nimz Sydenham Comedy Jam set to take place tomorrow at Bechet High School at 8pm.
Be prepared to laugh your socks off with comedy giants, Masood Boomgaard, Richelieu Beaunoir, Mo Vawda and Neil Green as they take to the stage.
“Sydenham has a reputation for producing some of the funniest people around and now three of the most hilarious comedians ever to come out of the “Nimz”, and their friends, will be uniting for a homecoming show that is sure to be a night of none stop laughter,” said show host Boomgaard.
Boomgaard has been apart of the comedy scene for more than a decade, appearing in solo shows and touring the country. He is also a viral video star having amassed a combined two million views on Youtube and Facebook. He most recently appeared in the show “Joker.”
Another star attraction will be Richelieu Beaunoir, a regular on Comedy Central, appearing alongside the biggest names in local and international comedy. Known for his exemplary crowd interaction and ability to deliver gags off the cuff, Richelieu recently was crowned Comedy Central Africa’s Roast champion in the recent inaugural competition.
Neil Green known as the thinking man’s comedian will also feature in the lineup. Arguably one of the most respected comedians in the country, Green has a style of his own and almost always has audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter.
Also expect great performances from up and comers like Mo Vawda and others.
“Bechet has a special place in the hearts of the residents of Sydenham and Durban at large. I am really excited to be part of this event. We urge everyone to come out and support home grown comedy and the school,” said Boomgaard.
The Nimz Sydenham Comedy Jam takes place on May 19 at 8pm at Bechet High School, 34 Barnes Road, Sydenham.
