Loyiso Gola – Unlearning

Durbanites, gear up for some real funny because two-time Emmy-nominated and Comics’ Choice Award winner, Loyiso Gola is heading to Durban in December!
I cannot think of a better way to help me claw my way to the holidays and the end of 2017 than by laughing until my face hurts at a show by the man the Wall Street Journal dubbed “One of South Africa’s greats”.

With ‘Unlearning’ the Gugulethu-born Gola challenges societal norms in his latest comedy offering on stage at the Garden Court Marine Parade.

Gola encourages audiences to question everything they thought they knew about politics, race, history, and more – all delivered with his signature satirical wit and larger than life personality.

Gola who has just returned from making his US comedy TV début on the late night TV show, 50 Central – a show produced by rapper and actor 50 Cent – says he is looking forward to dazzling the Durban audience.

“It’s a very introspective show that deals with a lot of issues. It’s very personal, which means I draw a lot from my personal life,” he says. “I talk about unlearning sexism, masculinity and how I view myself as a black.”

As co-producer and writer of Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola, he is no stranger to making audiences laugh on TV and on stage.

Gola, who showcased Unlearning to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival audience earlier this year, says he is currently going through “a process of personal unlearning”, which he gets to share with the audience.
