Major Moves Comedy back at it again

Known for staging hilarious comedians both locally and internationally, Major Moves Comedy has made its returns this year after being absent due to the outbreak of Covid-19. The comedy show is back again with yet another rib cracking line-up for their up-coming monthly event, which will be on the 7th of August at Cresta President Hotel.

Before the scourge of the coronavirus, the comedy show which featured comedians from Botswana, Zambia and South Africa, was staged every Friday night. For the time being and because of the Covid-19 regulations, the current line-up will be filled by local talent only. The likes of; Boniface Roy Phetolo, Queen of comedy Malebogo Lebo English Lekgowa, funny-man Maatla Ephraim Basha, as well as Ndiye Triccs Tampa. The familiar face of Onkgopotse Mdala Ka Tjeludo Mugende will be the host for the night.

The event will also bring upcoming comedians to the fore and give them a chance to share the stage with established acts. Since lockdown, comedians have been longing to showcase their talent on stage. With the new normal, most have used different social media platforms, however for stand-up comedians the stage is still the best place for them to showcase.

With these monthly events we also develop and nurture talent especially those who have been active on social media. This is in our quest to create a sustainable market and monetizing the talent, said events coordinator for Major Moves Comedy, Gaolathe Kediemetse.

The event will follow the Covid-19 regulations as prescribed by the Presidential Covid-19 Task Force Team and thus patrons will among others be required to; put on masks, register to get into the event, sanitize, and practice social distancing. The show will be expected to last nothing more than two hours, this also as per Covid-19 regulations.

We are excited to be hosting the event under the new normal and will be following the Covid-19 regulations. We have limited tickets available for the event which will also enable social distancing and we will have a dedicated Safety Officer to ensure the regulations are being followed.

We want to develop and contribute positively to the lives of the comedians while protecting the health of our patrons”, added Mr Kediemetse. The venue sponsor is Cresta President Hotel and tickets are available at Web tickets and Spar outlets. Prices range from P200 (single) and P300 (double). The show starts at 8pm.


Creatives taking over 2023

26th September 2023

Creativity is seen everywhere and these individuals did something recently that’s never been done before, and some are still killing it. We see creativity on streaming platforms, stages, runways, social media and boardrooms even. Some of them are revamping their businesses, and lately, clothing sale is thriving.

They love concept-driven designs, storytelling and they bring fresh ideas and new perspectives that will leave footprints in the sand. Post the COVID-19 pandemic, these creative minds utilized the drawing board and they became cognizant that monetizing content will actually take them far, which is frank nonetheless.

This is commendable though, but the creative industry will still need support from government in order for it to flourish further. Allocation of resources (funds, facilities and empowerment) should be done consistently, creativity must be raised and at the end of the day, the economy benefits from that kind of investment.
