Johannesburg - Following sold-out shows from Johannesburg to Cape Town, Riaad Moosa is back with the next leg of his Life Begins tour which will stop in Rustenburg, Newcastle, Durban and Empangeni from Saturday, 21 October.

More about the show:

Life Begins is snapshot into Riaad’s life as a 40-year-old, a father of three kids, husband, comedian, actor and with all the current cultural and political issues thrown in.  

“Even though I am now 40, in many ways, I feel like I’m still crawling and I’m looking back at my journey from being an aspirational doctor, coming from a relatively conservative Muslim background, where both my parents were doctors, and how I actually journeyed to becoming a stand-up comedian,” says Riaad about the show.

Here are 5 clips of the show to give you a taste of what to expect:

“The show is very philosophical and existential.  It involves the normal issues of getting older while at the same time experiencing, at a maturity where I’m supposed to be wise, a world that is completely turned on its head – with Trump, with Brexit; In South Africa, the ‘State Capture’, ‘Fees Must Fall’, ‘DOOM’.  And it’s about how I negotiate all these things happening around me while trying to maintain a positive attitude.  Through my comedic lens, I hope to put a different spin on that and hopefully my next 40 years will be lived with renewed vigour and excitement,” the doctor adds.

Life Begins, at the following venues around South Africa:

21 October 20:00 at Rustenburg Civic Centre, Rustenburg
4 November 20:00 at Blackrock Casino, Newcastle
