David-Kau-700x700

Top international comics Dwayne Perkins (US), Ruben Paul (US) and UK based Daliso Chaponda from Malawi will be joining David Kau’s not-to-be-missed Blacks Only comedy celebration this August.

Blacks Only Joke Appropriation Without Compensation takes place at The Ticketpro Dome on August 11. Now in its 15th year, it is the biggest and boldest Blacks Only show yet. Aside from the transnational contingent, it features 10 of the country’s best comic talent.

Brooklyn’s Dwayne Perkins is a vet in the comedy game. His one-hour comedy special Dwayne Perkins: Take Note debuted on Netflix to rave reviews. Perkins has earned a spot in today’s elite class of stand-up comics with several appearances on Comedy Central, Conan and his recurring piece on The Jay Leno Show, Great White Moments in Black History.

The son of a Malawian politician, Daliso Chaponda came third in Britain’s Got Talent in 2017. He began his comedy career in Canada in 2001, later moving to South Africa and then to the UK, where he established himself on club circuit, and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Californian Ruben Paul is one of the most unique and versatile comedians working today and has performed at The Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Paul’s stand up appearances on TV reinforce his versatility as a comedian with performances on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Lopez Tonight, Showtime’s special Russell Peters Presents, BET’s Comic View, Comics Unleashed and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam to name a few.

Also joining Kau on the bill are Sifiso Nene, Tumi Morake, Kagiso ‘KG’ Mogadi, Riaad Moosa, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Skhumba, Lihle Msimang, Mpho Popps and Siya Seya with Somizi as a guest artist.
