Chance for 25 wannabe stand-up comedians

As part of the launch of Soweto Theatre and Youth Month celebrations, 25 young people will be given an opportunity to kickstart careers in stand-up comedy.

Did you know: SA's top and experienced comedians earn R30 000 per show when doing corporate shows, R5 000 per performance for festivals and R2 000 per performance for club performances?

The Soweto Theatre together with Joburg Promusica Theatre is committed to youth development through the arts; as part of the launch of Soweto Theatre and Youth Month celebrations, 25 young people will be given an opportunity to kick start careers within the ever growing stand-up comedy Industry.

The South African Comedy Academy has helped launch the careers of some of the top comedy talents in the country. Comedians such as Trevor Noah, Eugene Khoza, Kedibone Mulaudzi and Tumi Morake amongst others, all started their careers using the Academy's comedy development initiatives.

As part of the Youth Month celebrations SACA will give 25 young people between the ages of 18-35 an opportunity to carve their paths in the comedy industry. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity as all costs are covered by Joburg Promusica Theatre and Soweto Theatre.
