Comedians, Trevor Gumbi and Masood Boomgaard, will be in the spotlight at the Pavilion Hotel comedy night on Thursday, October 29.
The elegant hotel on Durban’s Golden Mile will be hosting a monthly comedy night on the last Thursday of every month. Each evening will feature a well known South African comedian performing on the national circuit, being paired with a local comedian.
This month’s guests are Gumbi, and Durban’s own Boomgaard – who recently set a new world record holder for braaing for the longest time.
While outspoken and sometimes controversial, Gumbi is a firm favourite in the corporate market, where he can be found entertaining executives and their staff with tailored material, proving that he has the ability to adapt rapidly and appropriately for diverse audiences. He is equally comfortable entertaining pencil-pushers to top executive management who love his style of comedy.
Gumbi has performed at all the major comedy events all over the country. With his expressive eyes, facial expressions and high-energy, he has his audiences in stitches. He always arrives on time and that he puts down to him driving his scooter, saying that even though it’s difficult to tweet while riding it’s very economical…
Boomgaard is regarded as one of the industry’s brightest stand up talents. He made a name for himself on the Durban club comedy scene and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in SA comedy including Marc Lottering, Mark Banks, Muthu Murugan and Chris Forrest. In addition, Boomgaard has performed regularly in theatres and venues across the country and is a founder of the Charous and Bruin Ous comedy concept.
