SOUTH African stand-up co­me­dian Ri­aad Moosa, known in his home coun­try as the Com­edy Doc­tor, will give Zim­bab­weans a dose of comedic medicine later this month.

The ac­claimed co­me­dian will share his ex­pe­ri­ences of be­ing a Mus­lim, doc­tor and ma­gi­cian in a hu­mor­ous act at the Zim­babwe Academy of Mu­sic in Bu­l­awayo on Au­gust 27. But be­fore per­form­ing in Bu­l­awayo, he will first per­form in Harare at Harry Mar­go­lis Hall as part of his Live Africa Tour.

Tick­ets to the shows which have been pegged at $15 (reg­u­lar en­try) and $25 (VIP) are al­ready avail­able at Brooks Cafe and Colour World.

Ear­lier this week, Moosa con­firmed his per­for­mance in Zim­babwe on his Face­book fan page: “As-salamu alaykum (Ara­bic mean­ing Peace be upon you) Zim­babwe, Ri­aad Moosa here. I’m com­ing back to your awe­some coun­try on the 26th and 27th this month. Tick­ets are on sale now! Don’t miss out!”

Moosa is an award-win­ning co­me­dian, pre­sen­ter, writer and ac­tor; and hap­pens to be a qual­i­fied med­i­cal doc­tor. He has pro­duced a med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tional show #DOC on eTv, in which he utilises hu­mour to com­mu­ni­cate im­por­tant and prac­ti­cal health pro­mo­tional in­for­ma­tion.

He has starred as Ahmed Kathrada in the Os­car and Golden Globe nom­i­nated movie Man­dela – Long Walk to Free­dom.

The last time Moosa held an African tour which he dubbed “Doc­tor’s Orders”, was in 2013 when he per­formed for over 35 000 peo­ple.
