Gola and Moosa jet off to Just For Laughs Comedy Festival

Riaad 4Big up to Loyiso Gola and Riaad Moosa. The two funny men will be jetting off to Montreal, Canada along with a crew from Comedy Central to participate in the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival soon. The festival takes places from the 20th to the 24th of this month.

This will be Riaad the “Comedy Doctor’s” first time at the festival, while Gola takes to the stage for a second time. On heading back to the Just For Laughs Festival, Gola said, “I’m really excited to be attending the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival for the second time. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience last year and with the acts on the line-up, I can see it being another great festival this year.  With many thanks to Comedy Central Africa – I’m really looking forward to attending with Riaad Moosa and given that Trevor Noah is also taking part, it will certainly make things more exciting!”

Here’s what Riaad had to say,  “Thanks to Comedy Central for sponsoring me during Ramadaan while we’re fasting.  I think that’s why they chose a Muslim comedian…they’re going to save the budget on food.  I’m so excited about the festival: I hope they understand my Cape Town accent…but if they don’t, I’ll use a Cape Town swear word on them!”

Now if you’re stuck in this part of the world and you’re wondering how on earth we’re going to get to see these two in action, well sit tight. Comedy Central will film highlights of their trip for comedy special “Comedy Central Presents Loyiso Gola & Riaad Moosa Live at Just For Laughs in Montreal”. It will air in December on Comedy Central.
