Carl Joshua Ncube, The Biggest Thing In Zim Comedy This Year

Pacesetting Zimbabwean comedian Carl Joshua Ncube has just returned to home base after trailblazing in a long tour of South Africa that saw the funny man perform at 3 out of 4 of the only comedy clubs in Africa. Namely, Cape Town Comedy Club, Goliath Comedy Club and Parkers Comedy Club.

Described by CNN African Voices as, “The New Face of Zimbabwean Comedy.” A true description of this man of many talents, Carl brought fire to Cape Town and also hosted comedy nights in Johannesburg. According to Ncube, the South African comedy scene is a great place for a comedian to grow thanks to the huge body of well-travelled talent to learn from.

“I find that I always grow and my identity as a comedian continues to find its voice” said Carl.

These sentiments were echoed by the Goliath Comedy Club who described Carl Joshua Ncube as, “…fresh, original and wonderfully funny…” further stating “…his style is so international yet proudly Zimbabwean!”

Carl has been a regular performer at Cape Town Comedy Club, which has just been featured as 1 of the Top 10 comedy clubs in the world. This was an additional venue that played host to the Biggest Comedian in Zimbabwe during his successful attempt at the Guinness World Record of the Most Stand Up Comedy Shows in 7 days.

Carl is back in the country concluding some last minute fundraising for a tour that sees him performing in France, Germany, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore as he closes what has clear been a trendsetting year for Carl Joshua. You would think he’ll kick his feet up and relax but no, Carl recently announced his intentions to tour the United States in 2017.
