Based on his new affiliation with the media giant, Basketmouth will be performing alongside American stand up comedian and TV writer, Hannibal Buress and other international acts today in South Africa.
Apart from Hannibal Buress, Basketmouth will be performing with other American comedians, Aries Spears and Jeff Ross. South African comedians, Trevor Noah and John Vlismas will also be on stage of the comedy festival.
Announcing the event today, Basketmouth wrote;
The BIGGEST comedy Festival in Africa kicks off today!!!!! It’s the Comedy Central International Comedy Festival in South Africa: Nov 25th to Dec Dec 5th. Comedy like never before. @comedycentralaf
With this new arrangement, we can only hope that Basketmouth should also have a comedy show on Comedy Central’s cable and satellite television like Hannibal Buress. Comedy Central was founded by Time Warner in 1991.
