Johannesburg – SA comic Thabiso Mhlongo has proven himself as one of the best in the local scene.
But just like with any other job, in order to make it to the top of this industry, you have to do one important thing – take that first step.
Normally they think I’m like a serious guy. I’ve heard a couple of times that I’ve got a corporate look. I don’t look like I tell jokes for a living, I look too serious.
I know it was late 2014. So must have been, I think it’s Kitchener’s. In September at Kitchener’s. It went horribly.
Not really. I remember the first time I retaliated on stage. But I don’t remember the first time I got heckled.
I don’t think I’ve had like a proper standing ovation before. I don’t know what constitutes a proper standing ovation. Cause most of the time people just clap cause you’ve finished with your set.
I think it was Tats Nkonzo.
I remember the first joke I ever heard live. It was about South African airlines, I think, and how we are going to operate how taxi’s operate. That’s the first joke I ever remembered from a live comedy show.
