Update: The Loyiso Gola show at the CTICC on 22 December 2018 has been postponed to 2019.
Fresh from performing on Britain’s prestigious ‘Live at the Apollo’ and recording a Netflix special in Canada, Loyiso Gola presents Unlearning.
The two-time Emmy-nominated South African comedian returns from travelling the world to bring his latest comedy offering to Suncoast’s brand new venue, The Globe in Durban on 15 December 2018 and the Cape Town ICC on 22 December 2018.
The show challenges societal norms, making you question everything you thought you knew about politics, race, history and more. He brings together sharp and philosophical contemplations all delivered with his signature satirical charm and wit.
“This show delves into unpacking what we’ve learnt growing up, viewing the world differently and realising that there’s a need to unlearn it instead of being stuck in our own stereotypical mindsets. I go through a process of attempting to ‘unlearn’ some thoughts and preconceptions about relationships, masculinity, race, things that I’m currently going through and are pertinent in my life and I get to share this with the audience,” comments Gola.
Loyiso Gola also popular overseas
Loyiso Gola is no stranger to making audiences laugh. There is a reason why Loyiso is one of the most respected and renowned comedians in South Africa, and he seems to have been received with open arms by international audiences too.
“Nothing short of hilarious … expertly crafted … a real Fringe highlight,” said the Scottish magazine, ThreeWeeks with The Scotsman adding: Brilliant comic brain.” He has even been referred to as a “genuine thinker masquerading as a fool.”
Loyiso will also be featured in an unprecedented new stand-up comedy event series with Netflix set to premiere in early 2019, that will feature 47 comedians from around the globe. Loyiso is one of four South African comedians who will have their own half-hour special feature. The series was recently recorded at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.
