Hold onto your seats and get ready to laugh until your sides hurt, because the hilarious comedy duo, Lunga Tshuka and Phil De Lange, are about to take the stage for their highly anticipated Birthday Special! Aptly named ‘Twins of Comedy’, this show promises to be a riotous evening of laughter and entertainment. The Artscape Theater is the lucky venue where this comedic extravaganza will unfold, providing the perfect backdrop for a night filled with side-splitting jokes and belly laughs.


Since 2013, Phil de Lange has been gracing the South African comedy scene with his unique blend of stand-up and ukulele playing. His comedic style is a delightful combination of awkwardness, self-deprecation, and tongue-in-cheek humor. In recognition of his talent, Phil was awarded the prestigious South African Savanna Comics’ Choice Award in the ‘Next Level’ category. He has had the pleasure of performing at some of the top comedy venues and festivals in South Africa and even had the opportunity to showcase his skills as part of ‘Trevor Noah’s Nation Wild’. Phil’s comedic prowess also reached international audiences when he performed in Germany and Thailand.


Lunga Tshuka, also known as ‘The Energizer Funny’, is not only an all-round entertainer but also a physical comedian and humanitarian. He has embraced humor as a means to bring joy to people’s lives rather than using it for defamation purposes. Lunga’s performances are characterized by heartwarming moments that combine humor, sound effects, and storytelling – captivating spectators from start to finish. As a physical comedian, Lunga brings fresh perspectives on comedy while simultaneously inspiring young individuals and advocating for mental health awareness. You may already be familiar with ‘The Energizer Funny’ from his highly successful one-man show titled ‘These are my stories,’ which sold out completely during its run. Additionally, he served as a comedy mentor for ‘Lag My Kla’ at the Suidoosterfees – further solidifying his status within the comedy community.

With their unique brand of humour, Lunga and Phil are known for leaving audiences in stitches, and this special event is no exception. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable night of non-stop comedy as these two comedic geniuses showcase their quick wit, impeccable timing, and infectious energy. Whether you’re a fan of stand-up comedy or simply looking to unwind and have a good laugh, ‘Twins of Comedy’ at The Artscape Theater is an event not to be missed.

So mark your calendars, grab your friends, and get ready for an evening full of laughter that will leave you begging for more!
