Loyiso-Live-Taping-EB (1)

Two-time Emmy-nominated comedian, Loyiso Gola, brings his frank and outspoken comedy to the U.S. from South Africa, where he has been breaking taboos, with no fear of controversy, for over a decade. Star of the hit political satire show, Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola, and winner of South Africa’s Comics’ Choice Awards, Loyiso’s no-holds-bar comedic style comes to New York for the taping of his first-ever U.S. comedy special, a Vimeo original. Winner of numerous accolades, Loyiso’s credits include appearances on Comedy Central Africa, BBC’s Mock the Week and Australia’s The Weekly with Charlie Pickering, among many others, and he has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, as well as at top international comedy festivals, including Just for Laughs and a smash hit run at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As Men’s Health put it, “[Loyiso is] a genuine thinker masquerading as a fool and the reluctant voice of a cynical generation.”
The special will be taped on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at House of Yes in Brooklyn.
Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. You must be 21 or older to attend. Doors will open at 7:00pm, and the show will begin at 7:30pm, ending at 9:00pm. House of Yes is located at 2 Wyckoff Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237.
