Tumi Morake [Comedian/Actress/Super human]


I sat down with Tumi Morake who is one of South Africa's best comedians and actresses. Words really do fail when talking about Tumi. She is such a talented and enjoyable person to be in a room with. We talk about her career and thoughts and all the wonderful moments we have shared back stage and on stage and get to know about things she often does not reveal in interviews.

I sat down with the first Emirati comedian and one of my best friends in Dubai - I mean I don't know many people here so take that with a pinch of salt (sorry Best Friend Deen).

Majozi [Musician/Good Human/Top Bloke]


I wish I could remember what we spoke about in this conversation to write up a proper bio. I recorded this episode with Majozi like two months ago in Cape Town and all I remember from it was that it was interesting and humorous. It is also the longest episode I have ever done. I hope you enjoy it. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Stuart Goldsmith [Comedian and World Famous Podcaster]


The podcast has gone full circle! The person that has inspired my podcast with his podcast is our featured guest. Stuart is not only a well-established comedian but his own podcast 'The Comedian's Comedian' has had millions upon millions of downloads. Listen to an 11-minute intro of me hyping him. This pod also features Bob Perfect as well and thanks to Yaaseen Barnes for the mic chord. P.S. You will hear a lot of big words but 'Ouroboros' is my fav. See omnystudio...
