WAITING FOR A CHANCE TO PERFORM ABROAD: Upcoming local comedian, Phetso.

Recently, a group of established local comedians pledged to support one of the local upcoming comedians who wants to experience Stand Up Comedy at a higher level.

They chose two young brilliant comedians, Comedian Phetso and Tumelo Moilwa also known as Depay. However, the duo decided among themselves that Comedian Phetso whose birth names are Phetso Oabile from Serowe should benefit from the pledge. In an interview with Arts & Culture, he said Walker Dibe gave him the chance to share the stage with international comedians where some of them promised him more shows at their countries of Lesotho and Eswatini.

He added that he found out that Dibe organised the show with Major Moves Comedy BW with his partner Gee Spot where he found a slot and was able to charm international comedians. “Next year I will get the chance to perform abroad. I am just waiting for calls from international comedians. I will be sharing the stage with Dr Shakes, Lilaphalapha and also sharing the stage with Roni Modimola whom I look up to. Before I started comedy, I used to watch his comedy a lot. He is my role model. However, during the Major Moves Comedy show, I was under pressure despite being the first comedian to go on stage because I was performing alongside giant comedians but with the talent I managed to leave them in stitches,’ he confidently announced.
