Eugene Khoza quotes: “The other comedians had jobs, fancy cars, they were acting on TV; I have always felt like the outsider. I wasn’t going to the cool parties in the right car, I never went to private school and I wasn’t living in Johannesburg. I had to talk about me, my relationships, casual dating and never fitting in. I never felt like I was lying when I was telling those stories”.
