The show, hosted by Masha­bela Galane, pic­tured, an award­win­ning co­me­dian, brings to­gether the coun­try’s most tal­ented and fun­ni­est acts for a ver­nac­u­lar spec­tac­u­lar.

Galane is a well-known ver­nac­u­lar co­me­dian who has been in the com­edy in­dus­try for over 10 years. Rock The Mother Tongue ini­tia­tive was founded five years ago, with the goal to of­fer up­com­ing co­me­di­ans a plat­form to get them recog­nised within the in­dus­try.

Young co­me­di­ans get to show­case their ver­nac­u­lar set of com­edy to new au­di­ences at the theatre. The co­me­di­ans on the line-up come from dif­fer­ent prov­inces, with the aim to cover all the ver­nac­u­lar lan­guages. This in­cludes comics from KwaZulu-Na­tal, Lim­popo, Free State, North West, East­ern Cape, and all the Gaut­eng-based co­me­di­ans. Rock The Mother Tongue com­edy crew prom­ises a night of non-stop laughs for com­edy lovers. Tick­ets are avail­able from R150 per per­son through Com­puticket.
