Dubbed Almost All Divas Comedy Night the show will feature musician Kessia Magoshan,popular poet Wadzanai “Black Pearl” Chiuriri — who will also be performing comedy — and a surprise guest.

Simuka Comedy co-founder Victor “Doc Vikela” Mpofu said they were proud to show the first professional female comedy club.

“Women have been at the mercy of male comics for so long, thus Simuka just had to intervene and make sure women get to have a chance for a rebuttal,” he said.
He said there would be a performance by a sacrificial male poet on the night thus the title Almost All Divas.

“We have a very big surprise female performer for you on the night and just to spice things up, there will also be a sacrificial male comedian,” Doc Vikela said.

A regular performer at Simuka Comedy and also co-founder Simba “The Comic King” Kakora said the comedy night is a start to many programs they have lined up for the 16 Days of Activism.

“December 3, therefore, is the official genesis for a whole new wave of comedy craziness Simuka Comedy is bringing to the country.

“Starting with the Almost All Divas Comedy Night, Simuka Comedy will be hosting comedy events at the Book Café every Tuesday.

“The second show will have an Open Mic event where those who would have successfully displayed their talents will go on to perform at the ImprovComedy the following week,” Kakora said.

Performances will start at 7pm running until late.

Simuka Comedy is the first professional stand-up comedy platform boosting two years of existence.

It has hosted the country’s finest comics including Edgar Langaveldt, Carl Joshua Ncube, Clive Chigubu, Q The Boss and founders Doc Vikela and Simba The Comic King.
