Kings and Queens of Comedy 2014

I'l be attending the Kings and Queens of comedy tomorrow night. I tend to not consume a lot of comedy (I have a fear of picking up someone's material and unwittingly using it). Also, I  stick to what I know, so I will look out for Jimmy Carr, Riaad Moosa, Loyiso Gola and other comedians I enjoy, but I rarely support comedians I've never heard off... which makes tomorrow quite exciting.

Local hitters, Kagiso Lediga, Tumi Morake, Tshepo Mogale, Chester Missing and Conrad Koch, will be joined by a slew of afropolitan acts including David 'this place is shit loy' Kibuuka and a few others. Going to cheer for the Malawian chap ..mostly because i'm so used to hearing Malawian jokes from local chaps.  
I have no idea who this dude is - he looks like he could be an extra in Spud:the later years. 

I'm not a big fan of race related humour, especially when acts put on accent - it is often patronising and 'all and all and all' (what does that even mean?). What do you think? I'l post this on Facebook as well and do a follow-up with people's comments. 

There are a few tickets available (you can buy them here), and since Wednesday is a public holiday, staying out a little late shouldn't be an issue. Unless you have strict parents who are scared of Jinns that come out at Maghrib time..then I can't help.
