The event which was hosted by Micheal Kudakwashe (Micheal K) featured the South African based Carl Joshua Ncube, Nqobizita “Q The Boss” Siziba, Simbarashe “Simba The Comic King” Kakora,Victor “Doc Vikela” Mpofu and Uncle Sam.
Simuka Comedy saw different comedians using humor to point out issues affecting our society including repression, tyranny, sex and current affairs.
Veteran comedian who has staged performance around Africa and made success in both graphic designing and animation, Carl Joshua Ncube set pace for the night.
He could not divorce his jokes from the current issues including the controversial Zuma painting which has made headlines world over.
He also took mention of the extent of fear Zimbabweans have for their president that even a mad man straightens up when he gets to the state house.
The 24 year old Nqobizita managed to maintain the laughter with his description of the scariest moment of his life which apparently was when his car threatened to breakdown whilst passing by the state house.
However, his dirty and sexist jokes did not earn him much support from the female activists and those who subscribe to the sentiments of feminism and respectability of women.
Simba came in to prove his claim of the comic king title with a well delivery of jokes encompassing a bit of action.
He was further endorsed by fellow comedian who is referred to as the Godfather of comedy in Zimbabwe, Edgar Langavelt.
“For almost two years Simba has been seeking his voice and tonight he has just become the true comic king”, said Langavelt.
Doc Vikela came in with this passion and fire revoking issues such as the performance of Fungisayi Zvakavapano Mashavave at Jazz 105 and snubbed the United Nations on failing to serve the people but burden the thus the AIDS Fund introducing the AIDS levy to everyone.
He also challenged Drogba as a counter revolutionary for his participation in the Samsung refrigerator that has a statement ‘no power no problem’ saying we need power not refrigerators.
He was by far the best act the night had to offer and his inclusion of current affairs issue including the ongoing Big Brother Amplified and content of the national broadcaster.
The shy looking Uncle Sam closed the night with his spectacular hymns on popular songs remixing them to suite different religious sectors including Mapostori.
Meanwhile the host was no way left out from the spectacular delivery of jokes thus performing in between comedians for a smooth sailing show.
