Deep Fried Man

Deep Fried Man offers deeply entertaining, custom-made material for corporate events.

Despite being relatively new to the comedy scene, musical comedian Deep Fried Man has won multiple awards and performed at many of South Africa's biggest comedy events (Bafunny Bafunny, Blacks Only, The Heavyweight Comedy Jam and many more). He is also known for his musical performances as a member of the cast of popular television show Late Nite News With Loyiso Gola, his appearance in acclaimed local film Material and for his award-winning debut one-man show Deeply Fried and its successful follow-up White Whine.

He has also entertained the guests at events held by some of the country's top companies, firms, organisations and brands. When it comes to corporate entertainment he has a skill that sets him apart from other comedians - the ability to write witty, relevant material custom made for your event. Armed with his guitar, Deep Fried Man can and will turn anything his clients ask him to into hilarious songs tailor-made for the occasion. This ability has proven a hit at corporate functions.

Memorable moments from recent corporate performances include him singing his 'Rugby Song' to Victor Matfield himself at a Supersport event as well as a song he had written especially for the occasion; honoring 'The Everyday Heroes of MWeb' at an awards ceremony held by the company; singing songs about the challenges involved in education at an event for the Peermont Education Trust; writing songs specifically about tech and social media for the Tech Africa conference and singing hilarious personalised songs to the volunteers on the Hatzolah Medical Rescue team.

Deep Fried Man is a consummate professional who is willing to go the extra mile to entertain the guests of any function for any company. His blend of music, comedy and specially-written material offers something completely unique to the South African corporate world.

Deep Fried Man's past corporate clients have included Supersport, MWeb, Nedbank, Deloite, Momentum, Altrisk, Software Testing Solutions, Brunswick, Powertech IST, Peermont, Purple Capital, Chevra Kadisha, Norton Rose, Lynne Estates and many more.
