Rikus de Beer explained he went through a very dark time six years ago. February 2014 was the first time he stepped onto a stage and this year will be his 5th anniversary of his comedy career. However, things have not always been easy.

De Beer confessed to Martin Bester: "I was in a very emotional space a few years ago. The only time I feel alive is when I entertain people. Getting back up is a celebration and I do not take it for granted."
