Is it just me or are the international selection of comedians just not that funny? Maybe it’s my appeal for that very niche comedy factor that many of those international funny people cannot really guage. It’s like AH’KMED who came here last year and this year, I tell you this much, he just could not pull it off. I never winced once at his ‘quirks’ OR is it social circles I mix in. Or perhaps the fact I grew up watching genius stand up comedy crackers like Sans Moonsamy, Afzal Khan – if you are thinking what about Trevor Noah? I do not really find the Swiss chocolate that appealing as a comedian anymore since he decided to go up the corporate ladder of Cell(out) C as their SEE EEEEEE OH! The likes of Leon ‘SHUCKS’ Shoooster made me giggle silly too, with his exploits in the bygone era of white ‘eish’ black comedy!
It’s a well known fact that a funny man can like Afzal can laugh a woman into bed – why I say that…well, I have seen that ladies man in action and he can certainly belt out a tune from the old days to make any Indian woman quiver in her Punjabi. He has his lovely wife in his vision when he croons else he will have no hair left….ooops – my bad, he doesn’t! No seriously, this funny man has tickled my funny bone for a few years now and he is definitely getting wiser as he gets old but if Mr Khan was next to me he would probably go….’Ey larney I am getting old but you know me! I’m not cold!’ – and I would have to agree with his signature pearly, Colgate grin.
By laugh, I don’t mean a little giggle, cackle, snigger, chuckle or titter. I mean laugh out loud, hysterical, knicker wettingly funny. This is Afzal Khan, comedian extra-ordinaire!
So imagine my delight when when I saw this mans face on a bright *manja/tamerick coloured poster, WHO’s YOUR **MAMOO! Afzal Khan performs like a single outie, with a swagger like Amitabh and his Don mafia ‘topi’.
I would describe this halaal comedian as the “SANHA approved Bin Laden of Durban comedy, side-splittingly funny…ridiculously talented..”, this larney certainly offers a barrel of laughs. Worth checking out. Don’t take my word for it…..go see it for yourself!
Translation for the wit ou’z who dunno what I am chooning (talking) about
*manja/tamerick – a yellow spice
**MAMOO – Chacha…err sorry it means uncle
*** ‘topi’ – hat
