Netflix and Just For Laughs have announced an unprecedented new stand-up comedy event series set to premiere in 2019 that will feature 47 comedians from around the globe.
Flying the South African flag proud and high is Tumi Morake and Riaad Moosa, who join two other stellar SA comics as part of the series.
Morake is set to become the first African female stand-up comedian to have her own set on Netflix.
The yet-to-be-named series will feature a range of stand-up specials from comedians diverse in style, gender and ethnicity and will be taped in seven languages.
Tumi and Riaad will be part of 32 comedians that will record a half-hour special at this year’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal from July 24 to July 29, with the additional comedians set to record specials in Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Mumbai, Berlin and Amsterdam.
