Triple the laughs with Bay com­edy trio

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Arts & Entertainment -

A Bay com­edy trio who dub them­selves a bishop, a banker and a me­dia mogul are plan­ning to of­fer hi­lar­i­ous stand-up at the Roof Gar­den Bar in town.

The three East­ern Cape co­me­di­ans are TD Jokes, nick­named the Bishop of Hu­mour, Soso the Banker and me­dia pro­ducer Julie Coet­zee, who will be pre­sent­ing The Home In­va­sion Com­edy Showon Tues­day.

Hav­ing all re­cently per­formed across SA, the comics are com­ing home to Port El­iz­a­beth to per­form at the Win­ston Nt­shona (for­merly Chapel) Street venue, with DJ SuliSoul pro­vid­ing house mu­sic on the decks.

En­tre­pre­neur and me­dia per­son­al­ity Coet­zee only picked up the stand-up com­edy mic ear­lier in 2018.

She will use her slot to fo­cus on a blend of mod­ern-day sub­jects from Tin­der to white priv­i­lege, and hopes to give a re­lat­able look at 21st-cen­tury liv­ing, lov­ing and its strug­gles.

Son­wa­bile Sig­cau, af­fec­tion­ally known as Soso the Banker, is a Mthatha-born co­me­dian and MC. The win­ner of the Vo­da­com Com­edy Cam­pus Tour 2007 in Cape Town, he has since re­turned to his home­town to grow and pro­mote stand-up com­edy with re­cur­ring shows.

He has per­formed with na- tional and in­ter­na­tional acts like Loy­iso Gola, Ri­aad Moosa, Chris For­rest, Stephen Grant, Skhumba and Trevor Noah.

Them­binkosi Dike, aka TD Jokes, is best known for his “Bishop of Com­edy” shows. He looks at the lighter side of his up­bring­ing and the SA land­scape. After sold-out one-man shows in other East­ern Cape cities, he is ready to close the year on a home stage.

DJ SuliSoul has a tele­vi­sion and ra­dio pre­sent­ing back­ground and brings an el­e­ment of drama and en­gage­ment to her sets.

La­belles Food will serve sum­mer meals and the Roof Gar­den Bar will sell drinks from 6pm, with the show start­ing at 8pm.

Tick­ets are R100, on sale at Pick n Pay and Webtick­
