WIN TICKETS to see comedian Andrew Hughes’ one man show

STAND a chance to win one of three sets of double tickets to see the highly anticipated one-man show debut of Durban comedian, Andrew Hughes.

It’s been almost two years since Hughes entered the comedy scene, accumulating a snowballing success rate along the way.

Now he’s about to take that major proverbial ‘first step’ by showcasing his debut one man show.

After Hughes entered the comedy scene in 2016, just a year later he was nominated in the newcomer category of the Comics Choice Awards 2017 which is considered the Oscars of South African comedy. To date he has toured with the likes of Carvin Goldstone and shared the stage with a host of SA comedy heavyweights including Joey Rasdien, Kagiso Lediga, Marc Lottering and Donovan and Jason Goliath to name a few. These are no easy feats for a young comedian in a highly competitive industry.

Now Hughes is ready to stage his debut one man show, In Living Colour(ed). “The name of my show is inspired from a comedy series entitled In Living Colour which used to air on TV in the early 90s and starred comedians like Keenan Wayans and Jim Carrey. I decided to use the word ‘colour(ed)’ and brighten it up using different colours in a bid to show the show is applicable to people of all colours and racial backgrounds,” he explained.


“I’ve also called it In Living Colour(ed) because I am coloured even though I look black. There are coloured people who look Indian and some look white as well. We come from different backgrounds and have amazing stories to tell.

In Living Colour(ed) is partly a celebration of my story on stage. The show will incorporate a lot of storytelling about growing up coloured and as a South African as well. It will also touch on themes like relationships and the colourful shenanigans in South Africa’s Parliament and politics – among other universal topics.

The aim is to tell stories that we can all relate to regardless of racial background or age,” said Hughes.

 

Explaining where his passion for stand up comedy began, he said it was back in 2011 while he and a friend watched a “Proudly Coloured Comedy Show” DVD. Hughes then started going to comedy clubs to watch, ‘just to get a feel of it’.

“My friends always found me very entertaining at family functions and always recommended I try it out, but I was intimidated at being on stage with other experienced acts. In May 2016 Carvin Goldstone launched a show titled The Next Generation Comedy Series and the show aimed to give newcomers a chance to be on stage and be recognised. That was where I made my mark as a comedian. After that I started getting booked by comedy promoters in Durban and my comedy just kept improving,” he said.

He describes his style of comedy as a mix of witty with storytelling. “I also include some impersonations and a bit of dancing as well,” he laughed.

Be sure not to miss all the action on stage with Hughes in In Living Colour(ed). The show takes to the Bat Centre stage on 27 and 28 April at 8pm. Tickets are R100, are available via Quicket.co.za and at the door. This is a clean comedy show which is suitable for all ages.
