Xhosa Comedians and Master of Ceremonies
Xhosa comedy is another vernacular stand-up comedy show. It’s part of the growing South African comedy scene which caters for a certain ethnicity.
These are but a few of the Xhosa Comedians that are available: Chris Mapane, David Kau, David Kibuuka, Eugene Khoza, Judy Jake, Kedibone Mulaudzi, Loyiso Gola, Ndumiso Lindi, Roni Modimola, Tshepo Mogale, and Tumi Morake.
Some are new age comedians who break down boundaries, build bridges, challenge, and prejudice and invert stereotypes.
Xhosa comedy was designed to give a sense of pride to the Xhosa speaking comedians and to show that comedy shows are not only done in English. Many Xhosa comedians were finding it difficult to express themselves in English so Xhosa Comedy was created.
