Comedians give back to those in those in need

Comedians give back to those in those in need

Comedy Central is hoping to bring smiles to the faces of underprivileged children and youth in South Africa thanks to its second laughter-packed comedy benefit, Comedy Central Cares. 

Comedy Central

Taking place at The Goliath Comedy Club, Melrose Arch on Thursday 25 August, Comedy Central Cares will include stand-up sets from top SA comics Joey Rasdien, Skhumba, Snooze, Eugene Khoza, and Donovan, Jason and Nicholas Goliath.  

Conjuring up some amazing magical comedy will be Mo Magic, while comedy newcomer Isabella Jane will have punters crying with laughter at her singing ventriloquism aided by sidekick, Rosie.  Rounding out the evening will be a fun charity auction at which Comedy Central will auction off a range of lots.  Further comedians will be announced shortly.

Jason and Donovan Goliath, ambassadors to Orange Babies, will act as MCs and celebrity auctioneers, persuading the great and good to part with their money for the two worthy causes.

Benefiting from the initiative will be Comedy Central’s nominated charities, Rockstart and Orange Babies.
