One woman stand up comedy show, featuring Tumi Morake, winner of Edgars Comic of the Year at the Comics Choice Awards 2016.

The show at Blackrock is a full production which has Tumi Morake doing 1 hour and 20 minutes on stage, as well as two opening acts in the form of music and dance to hype the crowd.

Tumi Morake continues to be a formidable force in the male saturated comedy industry. Since beginning her career in smoky clubs in 2006, she has steadily grown into one of South Africa’s most sought after comedians, earning the title of South Africa’s First Lady of Comedy – not bad for a mother of three and wife of one.

Named Free State Icon in 2011, Morake’s edgy brand of comedy has earned her a place as a headliner in comedy festivals all over South Africa. She’s bold, she’s sassy and you simply cannot ignore her. The first woman to host Comedy Central Presents on African soil, Morake has become relentless in her quest to maintain her footing as a comedy tour de force. Not one to be limited by borders, Morake’s comedy has seen her wow audiences in Wimbledeon, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Following the success of her debut one woman show Herstory in 2011, Morake took to Scotland in 2013 to tick off a bucket list item: A one-woman show at the famed Edinburgh Festival.

Morake has also had some critical recognition thrown her way. From being named one of The Free State Province’s Icons, to the Entertainer of the Year at the 2012 Speakers of Note Award. The Tarantino of comedy, Tumi’s crowning glories have been her nominations for coveted Comic of The Year at the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Comic’s Choice Awards. She is a recipient of the the Mboko Women In The Arts Award for Excellence in Comedy 2013. 2015 saw her nominated in the Glamour Woman Of The Year Awards. She was voted You Spectacular Favourite Comedian 2016.

Tumi Morake in true multitasking woman style has channelled her comedy into writing, acting and producing. She will have her cake and eat it, and even have seconds, because she can.

A meet and greet will take place after the show inside the casino complex
A cash bar will be available at the event venue
