A comedian Loyiso Gola to perform two shows at Baxter Theatre in Cape Town this December

Two-time Emmy-nominated and Comics’ Choice Award winner, Loyiso Gola, is one of South Africa’s most loved comedians for a reason – and Capetonians will get to experience this comedy genius in person next month.

Returning to his hometown with his brand-new show, Unlearning, the Cape Town-born Gola challenges societal norms in his latest comedy offering on stage at the Baxter Theatre, for an exclusive two-night offering on Friday 1 December and Saturday 2 December.

In doing so, Gola allows audiences to question everything they thought they knew about politics, race, history and more – all delivered with his signature satirical wit.

Gola who has just returned from making his US comedy TV début on the late night TV show, 50 Central – a show produced by rapper and actor 50 Cent – says he is looking forward to dazzling the Cape Town audience.

“It’s a very introspective show that deals with a lot of issues. It’s very personal, which means I draw a lot from my personal life,” he says.

The Gugulethu-born host, co-producer and writer of Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola is no stranger to making audiences laugh on TV and on stage.

Gola, who showcased Unlearning to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival audience earlier this year, says he is currently going through “a process of personal unlearning”, which he gets to share with the audience.

“I talk about unlearning the sexism, masculinity and how I view myself as a black person.”

Gola, who heads to Durban in mid-December with the show after its run in The Mother City, admits that his Cape Town audiences are always a thrill to entertain on stage.

“I enjoy performing in Cape Town because I know the city so well. I dig the city’s culture and vibe – from a steak gatsby to the taxis.”
