Moyo leaves fans in stitches


LOCAL stand-up comedian Ntando Van Moyo on Friday night left his fans asking for more after he put an outstanding one-man show at the Bulawayo Theatre.


Dubbed It Aint That Funny, the performance was Moyo’s second solo show in the last two years.

The show which started at 7pm and ended at 8pm was well attended with the greater part of the crowd being young people.

The 27-year-old comedian staged a hilarious and unforgettable hour-long performance full of politically-inspired wit and controversial jokes.

Moyo touched on many topical issues ranging from issues of the recently held presidential elections, the voting system, campaigning and the results.

He also made fun of former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s claims that the July 31 elections were rigged and many other social issues such as prostitution.

Moyo, last year’s National Arts Merit Award nominee was happy about his performance and also the attendance.

“I am happy and thank everyone who came to support me and this has showed me people now accept the culture of stand-up comedy in the country and the city than before,” he said.

The stand-up comedian, who runs the Umahlekisa Comedy Club, the only comedy club in Zimbabwe’s second largest city, believes stand-up comedy is slowly finding its feet in the city.
