On Saturday, 23 March 2019, all the comedians featured on Showmax’s comedy-reality Original series Trippin With Skhumba will appear on one stage at 1 Fox Junction in Joburg, in a stand-up extravaganza the likes of which could only come together by the force of nature that is Skhumba Hlophe.

Don’t miss your chance to see Mashabela Galane, Celeste Ntuli, Tumi Morake, Salesman, Siya Seya and Schalk Bezuidenhout, along with show host Skhumba, and a line-up of up-and-coming comics from each of the comedians’ hometowns. These rising stars will get to share the stage for the first time with their mentors, and it will be a beautiful – and hilarious – thing to behold.

Gates open at 18:00 and the event starts at 20:00.
