Comedy shows and dinner have always paired well; much like yin and yang, “q” and “u” and speedy, disorrientated springboks and professional cyclists. Get acquainted with a dynamic duo with today’s Groupon: a buffet dinner and a ticket to Loyiso Gola for President for R75 at Café 52.
Combining two of humanity’s favourite seated pastimes to produce a dazzling duet, Café 52 breathes new life into previously monotonous “date nights”. Situated in the Centurion district, the trendy restaurant lounge is equipped with chefs who work fresh produce into delicious dishes and a team who know just how to effectively achieve service with a smile. While feasting your eyes and ears on the comedy show, Groupon grippers will be given the chance to indulge in a flavourful buffet dinner with an assortment of foods, including spicy curries.
Kick back with your meal and watch as the genius and razor-sharp wit of Loyiso Gola stretches the corners of your mouth from ear to ear. To call Loyisa Gola for President “funny” would just be an understatement. With a unique sense of humour and the ability to comment on South African politics and culture with frankness and hilarity, the man has established himself as one of South Africa’s best comedians. With his charm and overwhelming stage presence, the funny-guy ingeniously draws audiences in, then throws them into fits of laughter with ease and simplicity. Commenting on the post-apartheid South African experience, his ability to work a crow is astounding, as is his ability to give a crowd a case of the kind of laughter you may just break your stomach muscles with.
Funny Fact: While on board a ship in the Caribbean, a comedian fell ill and was forced to cancel his show. After much deliberation, it was decided that the crew would take turns performing his show on a nightly basis. Needless to say, things did not end well and one crew member was left to finish the rest of his trip in his room to avoid being shot by potato cannons.
