Laugh out loud!
02 December 2019 | Art and Entertainment
Featuring Mark Kariahuua, Lifa, OC Ebs, Courage the Comedian and Cassie Jessica, Nam Comedy Circle’s theme for this event is "The elections after party".
In times when “fishiness” of economical scale, political indecisiveness and uncertainty make the rounds, laughter offers relief from tooth aches and other discomforts. It is only fitting to close off the year with a comedy line-up that represents the crème de le crème of Namibian comedians.
Once again, the event is hosted and curated by award winning stand-up comedian Mark Kariahuua, who has proven to be the rising star of the decade.
Opening the show is Cassie Jessica, a young female comedian, who only recently made a name for herself on the live circuit, ahead of Lifa – who is not the latest Namibian transport app but rather a young man with a distinctively intellectual performance style. Courage, Namibia’s favourite resident Zimbabwean, or rather, Nambabwean, follows next, adding an African perspective to and insight into what it is like to come from one country with decades of dramatic election seasons and to end up in Namibia.
The night closes with the popular OC Ebs who brings an authentic ‘kasie’ vibe to the Hilton Kalabar. Loud, opinionated and oh-so-scathing, OC Ebs shares her perspective on the educational merits of this year’s elections and on the way forward.*
In the spirit of the coming festive season, the Kalabar gives away numerous prizes over the course of the evening, inviting the winners to test its Hilton Breeze Spa, the D’Vine Wine & Sushi Bar and the Ekipa restaurant respectively. The show starts at 20:00 sharp and entrance is free.
