Simply The Best Friday Comedy Night
Simply The Best Comedy night is bringing non-stop laughter to Gaborone on August 18th at the Staybridge Hotel with Zimbabwe and South Africa’s most sought after and favorite comedians. The event will be headlined by razor sharp and witty Jay Boogie from Soweto and the hilarious Mbongeni Ignatius from Bulawayo.
Events coordinator for Major Moves Comedy Mr Gaolathe Kediemetse said, “having produced a number of outstanding shows featuring international stars, we are finally back and want to showcase different forms of comedy and also bring fresh new comics who are hot and in demand now.” The enigmatic and charismatic Jay Boogie, has over the last 10 years firmly entrenched himself as one of the most commercially successful comedians in South Africa (SA). Jay Boogie, real name Jordan Mazibuko, has won the accolade for Top Online Vernac Set at the SA Comedy Awards. Jay’s personal jokes are all cultural and environmental to his own surroundings. After 10 years in the funny business, the secret to his success is his refreshingly different comedy style.
