Johannesburg - South Africa confirmed its place on the cutting edge of comedy on Saturday night, as 10 of the country’s funniest citizens walked away with the most prestigious award local comedy has to offer – a beautifully crafted Waldo statuette.
"This year’s show was entirely scripted by a team of comic writers, led by Warren Robertson, who approached us and wanted to be part of the awards," said John Vlismas, co-producer of the evening’s show.
Ndumiso Lindi announced a brand new award – Pan-African Comic of the Year – that will be open to comedians from the rest of Africa from next year.
