Star of the Emmy-nominated political satire show, Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola
, South African comedian Loyiso Gola has been enthralling stand-up and television audiences around the world for over a decade. Loyiso's refreshingly frank and outspoken comedy breaks taboos, with no fear of controversy, and as noted by the Wall Street Journal
is "taking South Africa by storm." Winner of numerous accolades, including South Africa's top comedian for several years, Loyiso has also been featured at top international comedy festivals, including Just for Laughs and the Edinburgh Fringe.
Vasu Primlani is an internationally celebrated speaker, emcee and comic. She has performed in Dubai, the U.S., and India, and has been featured on international media and television including NPR, CBS, and the BBC. Her pioneering stand‐up comedy is based on a scintillating look at life through her environmental activism, her very strong social commentary, inter personal relationships, seeing India through new eyes (including how George Bush is like her mother), gender politics, and experiences as an immigrant bumping into the culture and laws of the United States.
She is an award-winning environmentalist and India's first openly gay comedian.
