Zim comedians relish SA exploits

HARARE - Comedian Samm “Comrade Fatso” Monro is excited by the ongoing collaboration between Zimbabwean comedy show, Zambezi News and South Africa’s Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola.

The Zambezi News Crew, made up of Michael Kudakwashe, Comrade Fatso and Tongai Leslie Makawa who is better known by the stage name Outspoken, recently featured as official Zimbabwean correspondents on the satirical comedy hosted by top South African comedian Loyiso Gola on the DStv channel, eNCA.

“We are really inspired and excited by the collaboration between Zambezi News and Late Nite News,” said Comrade Fatso who is the Zambezi News executive producer.

“The collaboration will see Zimbabwe comedy being taken to a new level as we take our humour to DStv audiences not just in South Africa but across the continent.”

The hilarious Comrade Fatso hailed Zambezi News’ participation in Season 10 of Late Nite News alongside leading South African comedians like Kagiso Lediga, John Vlismas and Tumi Morake.

Comrade Fatso and his fellow comedians are currently shooting the third season of Zambezi News a fortnight after a southern African tour that saw them perform at the Awednesday Comedy Jam in Johannesburg and the Bushfire Festival in Swaziland.

The comical Zambezi News, created by Comrade Fatso and Outspoken and sponsored by Magamba Network, features rib-tickling news presenters who delve into everyday issues ranging from politics to sport.Zim comedians relish SA exploits.
