Comedy in the House tonight in the Hilton Hotel’s Kalabar features Chiro, winner of the 2010 Free Your Mind Last Comic Standing competition.
Chiro is looking at Namibia from the outside, so to speak. As a visitor from neighbouring Zimbabwe, he admits that he strongly relies on diplomatic immunity as he is poking fun at the Namibian society. Chiro takes, inter alia, a humorous look at land reform. He also touches on the matric farewell parties still taking place at the Hilton. Some friends claim he is a learned chiropractic specialising on re-alignment of the funny bone of patients requiring such services.
Taap the Guy is the guy from next door, the one with the pink suitcase, in which he assembles and carries with him his ideas and sketches around for the next ‘gig’. At age 15, he was the youngest ever to win the Last Comic Standing Namibia competition (2012). Taap talks about Afrikaans newspapers, the Windhoek Showgrounds, and other things that have over the years lost their special flair. Taap has recently ventured into tab dancing and offers body language courses.
The third comedian at Comedy in the House is the so-called ‘bubbling under’. This is supposed to be the young and inexperienced comic who is being ‘thrown in the cold waters of comedy’ by colleagues, who hope that he/she will make a complete fool of him/herself and thereby place his/her pears in more favorable light. The fight for the ‘bubbling under’ this time around was still ongoing at the time of going to press. The show starts at eight O’clock (20H00).
