Kagiso Kg Mokgadi: Comedy heavyweight Kagiso (KG) is the son of a Sangoma and a nurse. KG takes his audiences on a unique comedy journey with a glimpse into the “behind the scenes” practices of a Sangoma and what it’s like having one that you call “dad” , a nurse for a mom and why he was never able to take a day off sick from school.

Mpho Popps: Comedian, actor, businessman, cool dad extraordinaire, Mpho Popps has a talent for languages and a real silver tongue fox on stage that can captivate the diverse audiences of South Africa. Popps has the ability to take real life situations and making them relatable and interesting through humour. He combines his intellectual wit, and plug on pop culture to create a world filled only with laughter. His belief is that his talent and skill is not a show he puts on but an embodiment of his true self. This is who he is, all day, every day. His goal is to spread laughs and bring joy to audiences around the world.

Robby Collins: In relatively no time at all, Robby Collins has risen from a lanky, long-limbed actor on the Durban theatre circuit, to an artist of high acclaim – not just a nation-touring comedian with his own one-man show but also an Emmy-nominated writer and feature film actor. The sincerity of Robby’s material is matched only by that of his stage presence. His is the kind of comedy that seeks out the funny in otherwise painful experiences. He’s an established, multi-faceted, multi-talented entertainer.

Skhumba: When you talk about comedy and SA's top comedians, Skhumba's name immediately pops up. He has the charisma needed to hold the audience's attention for an extended period, enough to build upon a joke that will have you on your knees with laughter.

Tats Nkonzo: With his arsenal of humour, intellect and a guitar, Tats is an unrivalled comedic entertainer be it on stage or television. Tats was a writer and performer on the Emmy nominated satirical show, Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola, and based on his on stage material, Tats was profiled on CNN's African Voices.
“He’s funny and thought provoking, and the rest of the globe is finally taking notice.” Vanity Fair
"One of the quickest transitions from amateur comedian to professional.” Joe Parker

Thapelo Kingflat: started stand-up comedy in 2008. He was a finalist in the grace competition at Parkers (Montecasino) and is well known on the comedy circuit in Gauteng and Mpumalanga.

Thenjiwe Mosley: A KwaMashu native, Thenjiwe has perform around the world. Thenjiwe first burst into the comedy scene in 2013, beginning her career in London where she was voted finalist in the funny woman awards in the same year. The lawyer turned comedian is one of the most highly recognised and popular stand-up comedians on the road today. She recently returned from her international one woman tour which ended by shooting her 5th comedy special Thenjiwe Live In London. Her fresh, witty material is taken from observations of everyday life, and having lived, studied and worked in USA and England and has performed to audiences in more than 20 cities around the world, she has a lot of funny experiences to share with her audience.

The History of Blacks Only Comedy…..
What started as a one-night only comedy show in 2004, Blacks Only Comedy is the biggest comedy brand in the country and the most anticipated event on the social calendar, showcasing the country`s top comedians and is now entering into its seventeenth year, with shows occurring countrywide several times a year.

Director, producer, MC & comedian David Kau, whose outlook on everything South African and which has earned him a strong following, will continue his role as MC for the 2020 events.

Blacks Only Comedy Show is no stranger to edgy topics and close to the bone humour, and promises not to disappoint. To celebrate Blacks Only’s 15th year in the South African comedy market, we played to in excess of 10,000 people at the Northgate Dome in August 2018.
