Ntando performed at the Simuka Open Mic comedy show where he presented his hilarious and controversial political jokes touching mostly on current issues which had the audience in stitches.

He tackled the recent controversial elections results and the troubled marriages of some Zimbabwean politicians, among other political issues.

The show, which started at 8pm, saw four upcoming comedians warming the stage for the main performers.

The top guns at the show included Doc, who was the host, Simba, the comic and renowned comedian Edgar Langeveldt.

The ecstatic Moyo said he was overwhelmed by the encouraging response he got from the Harare audience.

“I’m really happy and humbled by the response and support from the audience. I did not expect such. I got everyone laughing,” he said.

“I am still moving on and I hope this show will elevate my status to leading comedian in the country. This has opened more opportunities for me.”

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 Bulawayo.
