Comedians shine at Book Caf


Celebrated Zimbabwean comedians shook Book Caf with a spectacular performance at Simuka Comedy on Tuesday night.

The event, which was hosted by Michael Kudakwashe, aka Michael K, featured South Africa-based Carl Joshua Ncube, Nqobizita Q The Boss Siziba, Simbarashe Simba The Comic King Kakora, Victor Doc Vikela Mpofu and Uncle Sam.

Through humourous acts, the comedians explored various issues affecting society including oppression, tyranny, sex and current affairs.

A veteran comedian, who has staged performances around Africa and been successful in both graphic designing and animation, Ncube, set the pace for the night.

He could not divorce his jokes from current issues including the controversial Zuma painting (of South African President Jacob Zuma) which has made headlines throughout the world.

Sibiza managed to maintain the laughter with his description of a fearful moment in his life, which apparently was when his car seemed to break down while driving past the State House.

However, his dirty and sexist jokes did not earn him much appreciation from female activists and feminists that were in the crowd.

Kakora came in to prove his claim to the comic king title with a well delivered set of jokes encompassing a bit of action.

He was further endorsed by fellow comedian, who is regarded as the Godfather of comedy in Zimbabwe, Edgar Langeveldt.

For almost two years Simba has been seeking his voice and tonight he has just become the true comic king, said Langeveldt.

Mpofu came in with passion and fire revoking issues such as the performance of Fungisayi Zvakavapano-Mashavave at Jazz 105.

He was by far the best act the night had on offer, with inclusions of current affairs including the ongoing Big Brother Stargame and contents of the national broadcaster (ZBC).

Uncle Sam closed the night with his spectacular hymns on popular songs remixing them to suite different religious sectors, including Mapostori.

Meanwhile, the host was not left out from the spectacular delivery of jokes, thus performing in between comedians for a smooth sailing show.

Simuka Comedy is an event that runs every last Tuesday of every month bringing together celebrated local comedians.
