Siv Ngesi [Actor]19 December 2019 | 48 Minute Listen
I sat down with Actor/Comedian Sir Ngesi. I've known Siv for many years and if there was ever a podcast episode I have done which shows the different spectrums of people in the comedy industry then this is it. Listen to Siv and hear a man full of confidence.
Jason Goliath [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 47 Minute Listen
Simmi Areff sits down with comedian Jason Goliath at his new cafe and comedy club to talk about Jason's past, his future and his dreams. They speak about how Jason got this far, his job at the large retail store Makro, the way to chase your happiness and success. Jason is a truly inspiring person with a whole other side to him other than just gags and laughter.
Phil de Lange [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 56 Minute Listen
I sat down with my friend Phil who is a really talented person. He does radio and comedy and also plays the ukulele. He even writes and performs a song for Africa's 8th best podcast. Listen to his soothing voice as we speak about comedy, his background and general stuff. Really good episode.
Robby Collins [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 39 Minute Listen
I speak to long-time friend and excellent comedian Robby Collins. Robby is the comedian most comedians would love to be. He is just naturally funny. Hear his stories about opening for Trevor Noah, doing comedy together across the country, him smelling my finger, funerals for hookah pipes and how much he loves Pharell
Nick Xplicit [Radio DJ & Rapper]19 December 2019 | 45 Minute Listen
Radio DJ/Rapper Nick Explicit joins me on this weeks episode of the podcast where we speak about the radio industry and his vibrant background. Hear about how he got into radio, sounding like a black guy but being a white guy, rap battles and being fired from a radio station.
Martin Evans [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 42 Minute Listen
I speak to comedy purist Martin Evans about a plethora of funny things! I've known Martin for most of my career and he is one of the most quick-witted people out there. Hear us talk about his gout, why he left the UK comedy scene and settle in South Africa, dealing with hecklers in an audience but most importantly - hear the best definition of what polony/bolony is.
Prins [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 53 Minute Listen
The podcast is back (AGAIN) and I speak to comedian Prins aka Virgil Prins. Generally the comedians I speak to have another side to them and Prins is no different. Hear how this Bachelor of Commerce and Law student found comedy. He started via improv (Which is a pet peeve of mine) and has now travelled the world performing his craft. Hear funny stories like him working as a teacher and not getting a job even though he had a prestigious degree.
Riaad Moosa [Comedian & Doctor]19 December 2019 | 63 Minute Listen
One of the first live podcasts of Lesser Known Somebodies and it is with the man that inspired me to start stand-up comedy. Riaad is a doctor, an actor, a pioneering comedian but also a really cool guy that has given me a platform more than once. This podcast could have been 2 hours long but I guess I will just have to have him back. it's really good.
Nicholas Goliath [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 54 Minute Listen
I spoke to Nicholas Goliath on this podcast thus completing the collection of Goliaths belonging to their comedy empire. Hear us discuss working in a call centre, writing jokes, a crazy night in Bloemfontein, chasing cops and lots of other good and funny stuff.
Schalk Bezuidenhout [Comedian]19 December 2019 | 45 Minute Listen
I spoke to Afrikaans comedian/sensation Schalk Bezuidenhout! Schalk came prepared for his interview so you can listen to well formulated answers about us meeting for the first time, him opening for Trevor Noah, me trying to get sponsorship for this podcast, his hospice jerseys and then...Schalk becoming the interviewer and asking me questions. Good, fun, happy podcast. Enjoy.
