It isn’t often that I feel the impact of stand-up comedy, but being confined to four walls, with the stress of work and personal commitments, a pick-me-up is sorely needed. So let’s cheers to 20 years of support for the comedians who do a great job at keeping us sane.
It’s evident that Savanna still has instore for us, and the SA comedy scene is just getting warmed up.
The Comedy Central Live at the Savanna Virtual Comedy bar is renewed for Season Three, and the laughs will keep coming. Starring Tumi Morake, Nina Hastie, Trevor Gumbi, Tyson Ngubeni & many more, it’s safe to say: the funny is back!
What started as an initiative to support the comedy industry during lockdown level 5 last year, the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar is back on our screens Monday nights at 22:00 on Comedy Central. And if you forget, catch up on Savanna’s social media channels every Thursday evening.
This authenticity and audacity allowed the show to laugh its way to winning the 2020 South African Comedy Awards for the Top Comedy Sponsor and Top Online Show and has now a much-deserved nomination for a 2021 SAFTAS Best Variety Show award.
“The comedy industry is very close to our heart and our brand. The wellbeing, continuous growth, and development of comedic talent is our priority. With limitations still in place when it comes to public event gatherings, international traveling, and many annual events being canceled, the Savanna Virtual Comedy Bar is a steady platform for comedic talent to continue to do what they love most. Let’s face it, no store accepts punchlines at the tills”, says Eugene Lenford, Marketing Manager for Savanna.
Now get the popcorn ready, stock up on your favourite sider and block out Monday nights in your diary. The Comedy Central Live at the Savanna Virtual Comedy bar is going to have you in stitches. Thank us on social media by tagging @thevibeza when you get a chance during the ad break.
