In the loft we are joined by Ndumiso Lindi, a South African stand-up comedian who’s taking a road less-travelled by gaining momentum around the continent of Africa in a phase where most local acts are making their mark in other continents.
Ndumiso Lindi hails from Zwelitsha, a small township next to King William’s Town in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. He came to Cape Town to study a national diploma in graphic design at Cape Technikon, and this is where the “stand-up” bug really bit.
After regular performances on the local comedy circuit, he won the amateur category in the Red BullComedy All Stars Comedy Challenge. He has toured South Africa performing at the Barnyard Theatre Festivalin Durban, Pretoria and Johannesburg and has sharedthe stage with local comedy stalwarts like KurtSchoonraad, Mel Miller, Riaad Moosa, Dave Levinsohn, Cokey Falkow and David Kau.
His ability to adapt his unique style to diverse audiences is proof that this relatively young performer is blessed with talent and instinct, and his rapid rise is well deserved.
