Over the past decade, South African comedian Loyiso Gola has earned a massive following for his taboo-breaking style that spans everything from stand-up sets to the satirical news television series “Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola.” It was only a matter of time before Gola followed in the footsteps of the all-time greats wit his own New York City comedy special, and that’s just what is coming exclusively to Vimeo on November 15.
“Loyiso Gola: Live in New York” finds the two-time Emmy nominee at Bushwick’s House of Yes. Loyiso’s special weaves the intellectual and the hilarious together, taking us from sharp day-to-day observations to frank racial commentary and beyond. His set tackles politics and racial issues with both comedy and intellect. Trina DasGupta of Single Palm Tree Productions serves as Executive Producer.
“Loyiso Gola: Live in New York” hits Vimeo November 15. You can catch the comedian at the New York Comedy Festival this Sunday, November 6, where he’ll preview the special after his set. Watch the exclusive trailer below.
