Published 2 years ago by

What started out as an intimate showcase to give up-and-coming comedians five minutes in the spotlight, has evolved into an extraordinary nugget of something quite unique, something magical, something unmistakably South African. Now in its 6th year, this special little get together at The Soweto Theatre has exploded into an unmissable afternoon of mingling with the who’s who on the social scene whilst grooving to Sunday afternoon tunes.  

As the first of a series of events produced by The Annual South African Savanna Comics’ Choice Awards, Newcomer Showcase is attended by many in the comedy industry who come out to see who they should vote for in the newcomer category for the awards, taking place later on this year. 

Anchoring this year’s show is Skhumba Hlophe, he will give each of the comedians five minutes to show the theatre what they’re made of before buzzing them off and bringing the next newcomer on. 

Previous  winners include: Daniel Friedman (Deep Fried Man), Dillan Oliphant, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Loyiso Madinga, Ebenhaezer Dibakwane, Thabiso Mhlongo and Yaaseen Barnes.
