Painting the nation from a young black man's point of view, this talented man is well on his way to the top!

After moving to Cape Town from Zwelitsha a small township next to King William's Town in Eastern Cape where he was born and raised, Ndumiso had never imagined that a national diploma in design at the Cape Technikon would be the start of a whole new creative world.

Inspired by his family and the likes of Eddie Murphy and Bill Cosby, his first big break came in 2004 during the Vodacom Comedy Campus Tour, where Ndumiso took his act to the stage for 3 minutes. It was these 3 minutes that got Ndumiso into the Comedy AllStars Collective, performing at a host of city venues, including the celebrated Independent Armchair Theatre in Cape Town. It was at this point that many could see the rising of this young talented comedian.

After regular successful performances on the local comedy circuit, Ndumiso won a trip to London as the Best Newcomer in the Red Bull Comedy AllStars Comedy Challenge. By now, flawless doors of opportunity were opening for Ndumiso as he continued to be unstoppable.

Ndumiso has toured South Africa performing stand-up in many well known and much loved comedy shows and festivals. Ndumiso has performed all over the country at the Barnyard Theatre Festival in Durban, Pretoria and Johannesburg. He has shared the stage with local award winning comedy gurus such as: Kurt Schoonraad, Mel Miller, Riaad Moosa, Stuart Taylor, Dave Levinsohn, Cokey Falkow, Marc Lottering and David Kau.

Ndumiso has worked his way to becoming a recommended headliner. At the Heavyweight Comedy Jams and Blacks Only comedy festival in Johannesburg earlier this year, he received countless ovations and praise from the media. He went on to share the stage with the best in the business at the 46664 Nelson Mandela Foundation "It's No Joke" Comedy Night in Sun City, Johannesburg and Cape Town earlier this year. Ndumiso was the MC at the Vodacom Comedy Campus Tour in 2009 & 2010 and has headlined the 2010 Vodacom Funny Festival at the Baxter Theatre. He has also wowed the rock audience when he headlined the comedy section at the rock festival – Rocking the Daisies.

Knighting this man as talented would be but to say the least. Being the much loved rising comedian, there is no stopping this young man. He believes in putting his heart and mind into everything he loves doing the most. Clear the way because Ndumiso Lindi is about to take centre stage.
