Carl on 'Feel Good Zimbabwe' tour

HARARE - Award-winning comedian Carl Joshua Ncube will perform in UK, Canada and Australia after his current local tour.

Ncube is among the cream of local comedians who have helped change the face of the local showbiz.

Ncube said the tour will be part of the “Feel Good Zimbabwe” campaign, which is meant to celebrate the good things about Zimbabwe.

“My schedule will include the UK tour which begins in October then Australia in November before capping off an eventful year in Canada in December.

I believe that this tour will be a great tourism branding exercise as it shows Zimbabwe in a ‘feel good’ light.

“So the footage from the various cities and towns will be part of a DVD I am shooting as well as a television show that has already attracted the attention of UK-based TV station Vox which shows on SKY digital platform and DsTV in West Africa. This development will give me the opportunity to show off Zimbabwe, Zimbabwean cuisine, tourist destinations and talent.

“For years there has been a negative narrative on Zimbabwe, I am only trying to create a positive one of my own.”

He is currently on a Zimbabwean tour which kicked off last night at Alliance Francaise.

“The tour will carry brand new material, especially made for the countrywide expedition. It will see me go around the country performing in places like Bindura, Karoi, Chimanimani, Mutare, Kariba, Kadoma, Victoria Falls, Bulawayo, Domboshawa, Norton, Gweru and Masvingo. Comedy has never been performed in some of these places and it’s a great opportunity to connect to fans of stand-up comedy around the country.

“This Feel Good Zimbabwe” Stand Up Comedy Tour is also an opportunity to perform new material that I have been writing throughout the year and I am sure that each city and town will give me new material as well as I am travelling by road and Zimbabwe is a country that is very quirky and great place to market the country through comedy.”
