Recognized today as one of the country's pioneering black comedians in the country & given his invaluable contribution to local comedy, Kagiso Lediga has certainly earned his right to be called a South African comedy legend. For over a decade - this multi talented comedian has entertained audiences in the live space, on the small screen, on the big screen and also now from behind the screen producing some of the most groundbreaking comedy content this country has ever seen. He is a natural storyteller with an enigmatic comedy style that blends schoolboy charm with creative genius, sharp intelligence & wit. However, if there was a SA Comedy Hall of Fame - it is his achievements thus far that would entrench his position there.
Young and full of charisma, nothing is out of bounds for this fellow. His comedy career only took off about 3years ago yet he has shared the stage with some of the countries greatest and has featured on Comedy Centrals live at parkers comedy special. Born in the new South Africa, performing in the new South Africa he is the ideal example of a true South African comedian.
This UJ graduate started comedy because he wanted a way to make extra money while he was in school, little did he now that he was starting a career that would sustain him way past that. He makes fun of his daily life struggles as a young Muslim man living in an urban generation and has featured neumerous times on the LNN show(etv) as well as Comedy Centrals Live at parkers.
In life every now and then something spectacular comes along to dazzle everybody and leave them begging for more. Stig is exactly that. He is a natural comedian, born to make whoever he is with laugh. He recently performed at the annual Soweto comedy festival held at the Soweto theatre and has toured with Loyiso Gola on two of his one man specials over the past 3 years. He can hold his own amongst some of the countries.

Eureka is one of SA’s top rising new comedy talent. He started doing comedy in late 2009. Since then he has made a name for himself on the Johannesburg comedy circuit with performances in Melville, Soweto, Norwood and Centurion. He entertains crowds with his social satire. A versatile comedian on stage with a good mixture of topical and observational humour.
With 10 years of comedy experience as a comedian it comes as no surprise that Kedibone is in constant demand as both a headline act and MC across the national comedy circuit. And him being Joyous Celebration’s resident Comedian and part of the same line up with Chris Rock when he was in the country cemented that. His mother calls him the funniest comedian on earth (well, why are we not surprised, she also thinks he is the best singer in the world), the corporate clients he has performed for call him a comedy genius that always tears the roof off with his witty and hilarious yet relevant punch lines.
Young, energetic and funny, that’s the ideal way of describing Sibusiso. He started doing comedy a year ago and he hasn’t looked back since. He has recently moved to Johannesburg from the Eastern cape to give himself o taste of what it feels like to be a working standup comedian. He has done open spots at Morula Sun, State theatre, The box and other comedy spots.
