Schuks! Your Country Needs You
What it's about:

SA’s hidden camera king is back! Schuks returns to prank unsuspecting South Africans. Helping him round up everyday victims are Rob van Vuuren, Lare Birk, and Alfred Ntombela.

What the critics thought:

Schuster’s work continues a tradition that involves characters of blackface minstrels who’ve played a significant role in cementing and proliferating racist images, attitudes and perceptions of black people worldwide.
- Percy Mabandu, City Press

A return to pure candid camera that makes Leon Schuster acknowledge he’s past his prime.
-  Zoe Hawkins, The Movies

Leon Schuster's "everyman" brand of slapstick comedy may not be for everyone, yet it's difficult to find a comedian who doesn't respect the funnyman, who has built a career out of getting South Africans to laugh at themselves.
- Spling

It’s hard to fault Schuster on his expertise as a prankster – the man is a legend in his own right, and Schuks! Your Country Needs You is among his best offerings in years.
- Joel Kanar, In The Kan.net

Schuster at his candid best.
