Bulawayo humorist in one-man show

BULAWAYO - Bulawayo-based stand-up humourist Ntando Van Moyo will hold a one-man show at the Bulawayo Theatre tomorrow.

Dubbed “It aint that funny”, the show is Moyo’s second solo show in the last two years.

The National Arts Merit Award (Nama) nominee is confident tomorrow’s show will provide him with a springboard to propel his career to a higher level.

“Friday’s (Today) show means a lot as I am confident that I have what it takes to be my own man,” said Moyo.

“This will be the second time I will be doing a one-man show since 2011.”

The upcoming stand-up comedian, who runs the Umahlekisa Comedy Club, the only comedy club in Zimbabwe’s second largest city, believes stand-up comedy is slowly finding its feet in the city.

Moyo is delighted his efforts and those of fellow Bulawayo comedians, including the equallytalented upcoming comedian Clive Chigubhu to put stand-up comedy on Bulawayo’s map are finally bearing fruit.

“In previous years, stand-up comedy was not known at all here but I am happy that we have gradually managed to build our own audience which I feel is a remarkable improvement,” he said.

The comedian, who has shared the stage with Zimbabwe’s leading comedians, attributes the increasing popularity of comedy in Bulawayo to the monthly Open Mic concerts held in the city.

The 27-year-old jester who is known for his controversial political jokes has promised a hilarious and unforgettable hour-long performance full of politically-inspired wit.

“Now that elections are over, I have a lot on my comic plate as I will be tracing political issues dating back to the years of the inclusive government, the Constitution and the elections themselves and a host of other general issues. I am sure that the show, judging by the content, is bound to be my best ever,” Moyo said.
