Johannesburg – Nearly a decade after appearing together on stage at the 46664 It’s No Joke show, local comedians Barry Hilton, Chris Forrest, David Kau, Marc Lottering, Nik Rabinowitz, Riaad Moosa and Tumi Morake will reunite once again for a show in honour of Nelson Mandela’s centenary.  

Produced by Real Concerts on behalf of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Nelson Mandela Centenary 2018: A Night to Remember Comedy Showwill take place on 24 August at the Teatro at Montecasino in Johannesburg, with all proceeds going to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.  

“We are delighted that these iconic South African comedians will be back together in a hilarious show in which all monies go to the Nelson Mandela Foundation in a year that celebrates the great man’s centenary and legacy. Comedy is a platform that unites people and delivers a message on social justice,” Real Concerts’ Roddy Quin said in a statement.  

Tickets for the show start at R250 and are available from Computicket.
