Your #Lockdown Saturdays just got better! Sit back, relax and LOL every Saturday this month, as Mzansi Magic brings you some of the finest comedians in the country.   

These acts need no introduction. The exciting line-up includes the likes of Tsitsi Chiumya, Celeste Ntuli, Loyiso Madinga, Goliath and Goliath, as well as Carvin Goldstone.  

1. Tsitsi Chiumya: So Naive

The Comics’ Choice ‘Best Newcomer’ 2018 Award winner has become a talent to reckoned with. He’s taken part in Trevor Noah’s comedy TV series, “Trevor Noah Presents: Nation Wild.” When he’s not up and about doing big things, he’s giving great advice on how to #StaySafe during the #Lockdown.

Tsitsi kicked off the Comedy Special this past Saturday. LOL with us below: 

2. Celeste Ntuli: Black Tax

Commonly referred to as “The queen of the Zulu comedy,” Celeste is known for being the first local female comic to record a one woman show DVD.  She has been keeping herself busy during #Lockdown by keeping fit and staying away from the fridge, LOL!

Next up this week is Celeste. Catch her on Saturday at 21:30! 

3. Loyiso Madinga: Born Free-ish

If you’re a huge fan of Loyiso’s work, then you’ve probably watched his debut one man show, "Born Free-ish" already. We should also mention that he has written and performed on the two-time Emmy finalist show, Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola.  Even in #Lockdown, Loyiso is ever so shady LOL!

Catch Loyiso on Saturday, May 16 at 21:30.

4. Goliath and Goliath: Aweh Mzansi

This is one of the most formidable brands in South African comedy, built by Kate Goliath and comedians Jason, Donovan and Nicholas Goliath. Donavan says #Lockdown doesn't mean you can't have fun, with this cool #StayCation idea.  

Goliath and Goliath make their way to your screen on Saturday, May 23 at 21:30.

5. Carvin Goldstone: Life Stories

Carvin is an internationally recognised South African comedian, and the 2018 South African Comic of the year and 2018 Flying Solo Comedian of the year.

Carvin closes the Comedy Special on Saturday, May 30 at 21:30.


Gear up for lots of laughter, as these comedians come prepared with all the shade and savagery!


Tune into the Comedy Specials on Mzansi Magic channel 161 from this Saturday, 2nd May at 21:30.
