Savanna Newcomer Showcase has come and gone, the event was great, on lit and the crowd was amazing and interacting with Kagiso Lediga, the host of the evening. One has to point it out, some of the comedians has more experience than the other that means they’re ready to hit the road and do shows accross the country.
During the show few things caught my attention, 1. Only 2 female comics appeared on the stage last night who happens to be white. 2. I kept asking myself where are the black female comedians?
As the show came to the end, then I concluded that maybe black sisters are not interested in comedy. The reason I’m saying they’re not interested its because, Savanna Newcomer Showcase is voluntary entry and comics are not hand picked. Finally I like to challenge Tumi Morake and Celeste Ntuli to go out of their way to find and mentor upcoming black female comedians.
