The Comedy Hits Keep Coming at Goldfields Casino
On the back of Barry Hilton’s hilarious The Way I See It comedy show in April, Goldfields Casino has announced that the outrageously funny Tumi Morake will be coming to spread some cheer in Welkom.
Tumi takes to the stage at the casino’s conference centre on Friday 27 June, adding some colour to the winter entertainment line-up. One of the country’s most sought-after female stand-up comedians, Tumi is fearless, intelligent and articulate. Making a swift success in a field mostly dominated by men, she was the only female among international and local acts at the 2009 Vodacom Funny Festival.
Since her rapid rise, Tumi has managed to keep a firm footing as one of a handful of successful female comedians on the corporate and commercial scene. She has shared the stage with comics such as David Kau, Marc Lottering, Stuart Taylor and Chris Forrest; at festivals such as Whack Jobs, Heavyweights Comedy Jam, Blacks Only, King Size Comedy, Have a Heart, Just Because Comedy Festival, The Tshwane Comedy Festival, The Lifestyle SA Festival and Old Mutual Comedy Encounters. Her comedy features intelligent and funny observations of South Africa’s strange contemporary social scene and her own multi-cultural life and experiences of motherhood.
Tickets to her show at Goldfields Casino cost R 80 per person and will be available at the Casino’s Host desk. Comedy-hungry fans are urged to book in advance as places are limited. Tickets to the casino’s comedy events usually sell-out fast.
