“First Ladies of Comedy”

“First Ladies of Comedy”, Tumi Morake and Thenjiwe, bring charm and wit to The Ridge

As Women’s Month draws to a close, The Ridge Casino hosted an unforgettable experience celebrating a combination of girl power and great entertainment. Tumi Morake and Thenjiwe brought their comedic talents to the casino’s stage on Saturday, 27 August 2016, leaving guests in stitches with their “First Ladies of Comedy” show.

The queen of one-liners, Thenjiwe, delivered an act full of wit true to her viral internet Thenjiwe Comedy Skits. Tumi equally offered the audience a hilarious performance with her much-loved, “in your face” and slightly provocative style.

The event also had other special guests on the line-up, including a surprise live performance by Aya Mpama, and Alice Shongwe and Emilina from Ligwalagwala FM as the opening acts. Acclaimed actress Dawn Thandeka King, best known for her starring role as Lindiwe Xulu, set the tone for the evening as the MC.

“It was a great event filled with laughs, and a celebration of female excellence. The two ladies are the most successful female comedic acts currently in the country, and it was a great pleasure to host them and our other special guests as part of the casino’s Women’s Month celebrations,” says Sharika Betts, The Ridge Casino Marketing Manager.
