Simuka comedy on tonight


Internationally acclaimed South Africa-based Zimbabwean stand-up comedian Carl Joshua Ncube is in the capital for Simuka Comedy night that takes place tonight at Alliance Franaise.

Ncube will undoubtedly be the centre of attraction at the event as the comedian has proved to be the crowds favourite.

He will be cracking jokes alongside local comedians Doc Vikela and Q The Boss among other surprise guests.

In an interview with NewsDay Ncube promised to pour out his best tonight.

I am back for the comic event and those who are coming will never regret their time and money, said Ncube.

Ncube broke out of anonymity in comic circles when he had a successful stint at the Listening Room and rose to become a regular performer at Wildfires Acoustic Nights in Harare.

He rendered an opening act alongside Michael K at the Darren Whackhead Simpson show to a capacity crowd at the 7 Arts Theatre in October 2010 and it was that performance which won him promoters who organised his three-city tour and DVD recording.

Simuka Comedy has established itself as Zimbabwes leading stand-up comedy event that attracts may comedy lovers.

Ncube revealed he decided to move out of the country to take his career higher.

But the comedian never dreamt of acting when he was growing up.

He worked as a nurse for a couple of years in the United Kingdom and returned to the country to venture into animation and advertising.

But a year ago, a friend asked him to be a master of ceremony at a certain event and after cracking a number of jokes to the audiences pleasure he realised he could be a good comedian and went straight to pursue the art.

Two months ago he left the country for his new base in South Africa.
