Carl Joshua Ncube Launches African Comedy Channel
Comic Carl Joshua Ncube has moved from being a Zimbabwean comedy promoter to being an African comedy promoter after opening a channel.
It currently sits on YouTube with more info on Feel Good Africa where information on comedy shows, tour dates and other things are available. It goes live in October.
Ncube, who just returned from a Feel Good Zimbabwe tour which also included South African dates says he wants to have the channel on Freet-to-air platforms by 2015 and hopefully DSTv some time after that.
We asked him why:
I decided it was important to start a channel by comedians for comedians in Africa. The focus of the channels that are already there is not Africa-wide. It is American shows then a few SA comics here and there. I am talking totally African content and there is plenty of it.
Well it is an ambitious project we think and we will be keeping a keen eye on it.
