Keenan starting giving me comedy insight and in November 2018 I had my first solid 5 mins and I was given my first stage opportunity outside of the church, at The Hive in Muizenberg. I was only given 5 minutes but ended up doing 10 minutes! That very same night I got another booking by a fellow comic and since then the bookings haven’t stopped.
I’ve since gone on to enter the Kasi World Comedy Showdown 2019 edition and ended up being the only coloured comic in the finals that took place at the Baxter Theatre in June 2019. Even though I didn’t win the competition, it has made other comics take me serious as a comedienne in my own right and has since shared the stage with the likes of Yaaseen Barnes, Shimmy Isaacs and Barry Hilton just to mention a few.
During the day I am an administrator at Philisa Abafazi Bethu, a NPO based in Lavender Hill providing services like victim empowerment support, a safe house and youth services just to mention a few. By night, I hustle as a stand-up comedienne often doing 3-5 gigs per week. It is definitely not easy and often have to catch the last bus that leaves at 21:45pm from Cape Town from gigs and currently my day job pays for my night job.
