The festival was re-launched at an event whose attendance could best be described as a show of unity through art among Zimbabweans.
The attendance cut across racial barriers.
The show saw groundbreaking performances from Zimbabwe’s finest comedians that include Simbarashe Kakora aka Simba the Comic King, Victor Doc Vikela Mpofu, Shingirai Toropito Mutizwa, and Nqobizitha Siziba aka Q.
To match the fun, the event was hosted by Comrade Fatso, the hilarious protest musician.
Speaking in an interview with StandardLife&Style, Simba the Comic King, who doubled as the organiser of the event, said the performances were intelligently presented.
“The performances were quite interesting and were also a reflection of the many facets that make good stand-up comedy material apart from politics as the material presented was mainly social,” he said.
“Each comedian commented on issues ranging from Stunner’s recent sex tape scandal and rank marshals among others.”
Simuka Comedy was founded in June 2011 by Simba the Comic King and Doc Vikela.
Dubbed as the home of Zimbabwean stand-up comedy, Simuka Comedy has hosted some of Zimbabwe’s best comedians, from the hilarious Michael Kudakwashe and Carl Joshua Ncube as well as upcoming comedians like Nqobizitha Siziba, also known as Q.
