Riaad Moosa

Riaad Moosa has just qualified as a doctor and both his parents are doctors and all his aunts and uncles are doctors. But his dad has always said to him, "Riaad, you can do anything you want to in this world, as long as you become an orthopaedic surgeon first."

Riaad's combination of cheek and charm matched with his great bonestructure and awesome intelligence make him irresistible to women and audiences everywhere.

Riaad is a natural comic with worldclass potential. He is also a devout Muslim and a superb ambassador for his faith. His material confronts stereotypical views of his community with wit and wisdom, as well as showing a flair for the just plain silly.

Having trained as a comedy magician, Riaad was challenged to move over to pure stand-up at the Cape Comedy Collective's free Comedy Lab workshops, and just two months later he was the winner of the hotly contested One City, Many Comics Talent Competition held as part of Cape Town s One City Festival in September 1999.

Riaad represented the CCC at the 9th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Durban in October 1999 and he appeared on Evita: Live and Dangerous on eTV as a guest of Pieter-Dirk Uys in December. He was a headliner on the CCC's Cape Town circuit and appeared on stages all over the country as part of the CCC s Varsities Tour of campus cities nationwide in 2000.

Riaad spent 2002 living in Gauteng and performed regularly in venues around Jo'burg. He was the hit of the 5fm Heavyweight Comedy Jam at the Sandton Centre in April, appeared on the national Sprite Soul Comedy tour in May and performed at the Laugh Out Loud concert for the Reach for a Dream Foundation in November which was broadcast on SABC3 on New Year's Eve.

Riaad has been on all of Real Comedy's Heavyweight Comedy Jams during 2003 & 2004 and on all the King Size Comedy comedy shows around the country.

To add to this, Riaad has just completed a SOLD OUT run of his one man show entitled Strictly Halaal at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre and around the country.
