SIV NGESI – HEADLINE
“Spurred on by a hunger for success, Sivuyile “Siv” Ngesi is one of SA’s most dynamic actors and comedians in the South African entertainment scene, and with good reason.
He immersed in several different spheres of the performing arts at one time, showcasing his talents across a number of platforms. He was voted Mail & Guardian’s most influential young South African. Age 9, Siv toured Asia with Les Miserables in the coveted role of Gavroshe. Since then landing roles in films such as World Unseen, Zeenon Z3 , Schweitzer , Invictus and Long Walk To Freedom. In 2014 Siv captivated audiences with his smile and dance moves in the 7th Season of Strictly Come Dancing.
Siv’s theatre experience includes top class productions such as Sizwe Banzi is Dead, The Island , Butlers and Brandy and more recently his stand-up comedy show Dekaf, and the very controversial Race Card that was sold out on it’s national tour. Siv performs to expats all around the world and with his very South African flavour of humour , he makes many want to book a ticket back home to SA .
TRACY KLASS – HOST
Tracy Klass has been performing stand up comedy since her arrival in Cape Town in 1999. She is known for her ‘growing up disgracefully’ stance on life and being dragged towards middle age – kicking and screaming rather than floating gracefully on a cloud of Clarins and botox. She also gives a unique take on those issues women hold very dear; children, weight, ageing and food.
