Skhumba Hlophe to Host This Year’s Savanna Newcomer Showcase

What started out as an intimate showcase to give up-and-coming comedians five minutes in the spotlight, has evolved into an extraordinary nugget of something quite unique, something magical, something unmistakably South African. 

Now in its 6th year, this special little get together at The Soweto Theatre has exploded into an unmissable afternoon of mingling with the who’s who on the social scene whilst grooving to Sunday afternoon tunes.  Add chilled Savanna ciders, Kaya FM DJ’s and the aroma of a delicious shisa nyama and you’ll start to get a feel for just how vibey the afternoon really is.

As the first of a series of events produced by The Annual South African Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards, The Savanna Newcomer Showcase is attended by many in the comedy industry who come out to see who they should vote for in the newcomer category for the awards, taking place later on this year.  Expect to be astounded, astonished, surprised; 90% hilarious and 10% cringe-worthy, every year brings new, raw talent to this exciting stage.
