2012 Comics Choice Awards – nominees

The second annual Comics Choice Awards are set to take place in Johannesburg on the 10th of July. It’s going to be a great event… well if some of the nominees is anything to go by. I really think the comedy scene in SA is one of the strongest in the globe and I think no matter who you are or where you come from, you will enjoy comedy. Why? Because we all enjoy a laugh and we all need to laugh too. Anyways, enough with the preaching. Find below a list of this year’s nominees.
