The latest edition in the comedy series features Masood Boomgaard, Neil Green, Sagie Murugan, Kelvin Stoffels and more.

The first 2019 edition of the show sees the return of stalwarts like Masood Boomgaard who since appearing in the show a decade ago, has gone to be a viral video star, perform around the world and appear on major comedy platforms like Comedy Central.

He is known for his unique take on current and everyday issues. His candid approach earning him legions of fans.
There is always excitement in the air, every time Kelvin Stoffels takes to the stage, delivering his humour with swag and creativity, often busting a move or breaking into song. Veteran Sagie Murugan never disappoints with his high energy style of joke telling that has made
