Jokes & Jazz is a unique live comedy, music concepts and experiences event in South Africa offered as corporate entertainment. The series has featured local and international jazz musicians and comedians since its inception in 2017 ranging as far afield as the UK.
Maule is a veteran comedian with experience spanning 25 years and is the host of the Breakfast Show on East Coast Radio on weekday mornings.
Jokes & Jazz was created by UKZN student Mr Troy Tesla and has been embraced by The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music. ‘Jokes & Jazz started as a seemingly impossible idea, but now it has become one of the most highly sought-after events on the local circuit.
‘We’re bringing in acts such as Darren Maule for the first show of 2019. This is exciting because it’s a way for us to expand the show’s reach and (meet) our fans’ request to keep things fresh and exciting,’ said Tesla.
‘The show is also an initiative to give students in Performance Art the opportunity to network and share the stage with established artists in order to build their profiles,’ added Thulile Zama of The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music.
Accompanying Maule will be fellow comedians Mfundo Ndovela and Bob Perfect. Performing musicians for the night are Djembe, Acapella & Marimbas.
Catch Jokes & Jazz IX at Centre for Jazz & Popular Music, UKZN’s Howard College on 26 March at 6pm. Tickets cost R80 at www.Quicket.co.za or 072 338 6107.
