Friday Comedy with KG Mokgadi
Kagiso Mokgadi or KG as he is affectionately known is the son of a Sangoma and a nurse.KG takes his audiences on a unique comedy journey with a glimpse into the “behind the scenes” practices of a Sangoma and what it’s like having one that you call “dad” , a nurse for a mom and why he was never able to take a day off sick from school.
KG made his big stage performance at the Joburg Arts Alive Festival in the Comedy Nine-Nine showcase, working alongside Rob Van Vuuren, Mark Palmer, Ndumiso Lindi and Kurt Schoonraad and earning rave reviews from the audience members and organizers alike.
After an invite to perform just one night at the Fugard Theatre Christmas Festival of Laughter, KG ended up playing seven more shows alongside Alan Committee, Riaad Moosa and Stuart Taylor.
He has performed at all of the regular comedy venues around South Africa, the outdoor music festivals in Cape Town including Rocking the Daisies, Rocking the River and Synergy Live. Just recently he had audiences in stiches at the Vodacom Funny Festival 2012 at the Baxter Theatre.
In a very short period of time KG has moved from being an unpaid open-mic comedian to being a paid featured act.
