is receiving the international recognition he deserves. The comedian started his career on television in 2002 and has worked his way up since
. This week he was featured on The New York Times paper for 5 shows to catch in New York City over the weekend.
Loyiso had announced that his show Loyiso Gola: Unlearning will be running between April 10 – 21 at SoHo Playhouse in New York City.
This seems to be a big year for the star and we stan for it. In January he premiered his Netflix special, Loyiso Gola: The African which was part of Netflix's debut Comedian of The world stand-up shows. The show was filmed in Montreal Canada and featured 47 comedians from 13 regions including local comedians Loyiso Madinga, Riaad Moosa, Tumi.
When asked about how he felt about being part of the biggest online streaming platform original shows the comedian answered by saying: “I travel the world all the time to do stand-up comedy. The recognition is appreciated, as well as the opportunity to be part of such a big, global game-changer.” I am overwhelmed with emotion. I’m proud of myself and my career/life decisions. They seem obscure from far... but those who know know.”
Loyiso also boasts 12 seasons of his two-time International Emmy nominated satirical news show Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola
, and he is the African correspondent for Charlie Pickering’s The Weekly on the ABC in Australia. We can’t wait to see what else will unfold for the comedian because he is clearly OUT THERE DOING BIGGER THINGS.
