Mpho Popps to host the 11th Savanna Comics’ Choice Comedy Awards

Themed ‘You Think You Know South Africa’, the 11th edition of the Savanna Comics’ Choice Comedy Awards hosted by Mpho ‘Popps’ Modikoane is an awards event disguised as a comedy show, all to celebrate SA’s best comedians against the backdrop of our beautiful yet turbulent country.

“Much like our country, our comedy infrastructure was a bit on the edge there for a while, so everyone’s had to pull their weight to rebuild the framework of comedy,” comments this year’s awards show host, Mpho Popps. “South Africa’s much the same; we all need to do our bit to drive our country forward, and as SA gives us comedians so much material daily, we thought it high time that we affectionately gave back to it in our own, endearing but comedically brutal way.”

Taking place at the Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City on Saturday 13 April, expect a glamorous night filled with trophies, sketches, punchlines and satire, and a star-studded line-up made up of previous award-winners and A-list celebs.

Joining Mpho on stage will be the likes of Celeste Ntuli, Khanyisa Bunu and Robby Collins, who will bring the stand-up gold as we celebrate the recipients of the 12 prestigious award categories. Each winner will do five minutes of stand-up instead of an acceptance speech, so prepare for a fun night of laughter and pure comedy genius.
