Cape Town – One of South Africa's funniest comedians, David Kau, has been quite busy recently. Besides doing stand up he now has his own Show called David Kau's House, which has already been set for season 2.

Channel24 had a quickie with David Kau and got his opinions on a few interesting topics...

1. What are you up to lately?

I have my own TV show on star 1 called David Kau's House, which is kind of like a reality show meets stand up comedy show. The reality part is kind of me trying to live my life when I’m not on stage. 

2. What’s different about your reality show?

The show is scripted on my real life events so you’ll see me kids, but my wife didn't wanna be on the show so we got an actress to play her which is fun. Also I have guests coming to visit me, everyone in my life, other comedians which we’ll do a 2-6 minute stand up comedy segment. 

3. You must have heard the news about Trevor Noah, what do you think of the news?

I said to him congratulations on making it on one of the biggest platforms in the world. I spoke to him on Tuesday; I don't know where he is in the world right now but we always stay in contact with each other.

Well done @trevornoah #Fashback

4. Who or what is your favourite topic when doing comedy?

I do a lot of current affairs, which in South Africa is mostly politics. Maybe it will branch out to the SAMA awards but it’s mostly politics. I have a wife and kids now so I’m noticing all the faults out there and poke fun of them... 

5. I see on your Twitter your picture is somewhat like the DJ Sbu cover… Any thoughts on that?

I think DJ Sbu is a fantastic marketer. He is a popular DJ having started so many careers himself. Although he didn't go about it the "right" way, I think he has a good idea with the energy drink and although they didn’t renew his contract he still wants to be apart of SABC. He is someone I look up to with radio, marketing, he doesn’t need a radio station he’s DJ Sbu. 

Good Morning. #MoJokes

6. And what about stand up, do you still do it? Or is your main focus your reality show?

Yes I have to. I tried to stay away but it’s like you’re a crack addict you start shaking…
