Kagiso, or KG as he is affectionately known is the son of a Sangoma and a nurse. He is well and truly on his way to becoming a true comedy heavyweight. KG takes his audiences on a unique comedy journey with a glimpse into the “behind the scenes” practices of a Sangoma and what it’s like having one that you call “dad” , a nurse for a mom and why he was never able to take a day off sick from school. His take on what is regarded as an “unknown” is yet another first for South African comedy. In a very short period of time KG has moved from being an open-mic comedian to being a featured act in club, theatre and corporate comedy. He made his big stage performance at the Joburg Arts Alive Festival in the Comedy Nine-Nine showcase, working alongside Rob Van Vuuren, Mark Palmer, NdumisoLindi and Kurt Schoonraad and earning rave reviews from the audience members and organizers alike. Since then he has shared the big stage with more of the crème de la crème of South African comedy at the Fugard Theatre Christmas Festival of Laughter, Vodacom Comedy Festival 2012, Comedy Central Presents, The inagural Keeping You In Stitches with RiaadMoosa, Black Only Comedy Show and the outdoor music Festivals in the Western Cape and most recently he was the opening act for David Kau’s Here to make you Laugh in Cape Town. While many considered it too early to have a one person show, KG 2013’s nominee for the best new comer award at the South African Comics Choice awards went ahead and ran his first solo show, HEAVY at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. A week’s worth of packed houses resulted in standing ovations and a four star review in the media.
He is fast becoming one of the top new acts to take to the stage in South Africa. Mark Palmer and Kurt Schoonraad both believe that even though he’s a big guy already, he’s going to be huge one day.
